Acting President Phelekezela Mphoko on Monday reportedly summoned members of the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (Zacc). Zacc spokesperson, Phyllis Chikundura, confirmed the meeting, but declined to disclose details,
They met, but I was not privy to the discussions. Most of these things will be covered at our Press conference tomorrow (today).
An insider revealed to NewsDay that Mphoko started calling ZACC officials after the politburo meeting and Mugabe had actually not blocked Moyo‘s arrest,
Mphoko began calling Zacc commissioners last week just after the politburo meeting. There has been a misconception that President Robert Mugabe blocked Moyo’s arrest. The President actually asked Moyo to present himself to Zacc and offer his side of the story. A sobbing Moyo then lashed out at his factional enemies, including Mnangagwa. Moyo insisted the money from Zimdef had benefited Zanu PF and the President had been fully briefed.
Zacc commissioners, led by board chairperson, Job Whabira, had reportedly initially refused to meet Mphoko, but later yielded to meeting the Acting President. At the meeting, Mphoko allegedly accused the commission of pushing a factional agenda to destabilise the Zanu PF government.
