Mugabe orders investigation into ZACC after allegations of bias

The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Corruption (Zacc)  is reportedly under investigation by the Office of the President and Cabinet, reportedly at the orders of President Mugabe.  According to Newsday, the President is concerned after receiving allegations that Zacc is  being used to fight political fights and is no longer impartial.

Zacc deputy chairperson and the commissioner responsible for the media, Nanette Silukhuni confirmed the investigation saying:

The Office of the President is carrying out a due diligence exercise on the commission and its people

It is within their mandate to do so, as you may be aware we work under the Office of the President and that is what they are doing.

This is a normal exercise.

One of the people who accused Zacc of bias is Higher and Tertiary Education minister Jonathan Moyo, who  said:

The President has been monitoring activities at Zacc and realised that some of its people were being used to settle political fights.

He has observed that some have failed to discharge their duties in a proper manner as expected, as they are talking about their political associations and factional interests within Zanu PF, something which has affected the credibility of the commission.
