Moyo accuses ZACC of breaking into his office to steal Govt documents whose information they used to build the ZIMDEF case against him

Appearing before the Higher and Tertiary Education Parliament Portfolio Committee chaired by Peter Mataruse on Monday, Higher and Tertiary Education minister Jonathan Moyo has accused the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) of breaking into his office in August last year to steal government documents whose information they used to build the ZIMDEF case against him.

The break-in was reported in the media and both the ZIMDEF scandal and the break-in cases are before the courts. Said Moyo:

In August last year, the 5th and 6th floors were broken into and computers and documents were stolen. Seven directors, the minister’s office and permanent secretary’s were ransacked. Now that is the information in the Sunday Mail article of December 18 where ZACC is said to have stumbled on that information, how can you stumble into such information. You don’t break into people’s offices, you use warrants. Also ZACC wrote to the speaker when the case was already sub judice. That’s unacceptable. Surprisingly, the letter was copied to Vice President Enmerson Mnangagwa, Ignatius Chombo and chief secretary Misheck Sibanda, I wasn’t copied.

He came with his co-accused Godfrey Gandawa, several directors and officers. Moyo admitted to diverting $430 000 in ZIMDEF funds to finance party activities. He told the committee that ZACC’s unconventional way of doing investigations has stalled programmes in the ministry.
