Transparency International Zimbabwe (TIZ) has warned the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Comm position that it needs to work with the police if it is to successfully prosecute criminal cases. TIZ board chairperson Richard Makoni told the Zimbabwe Independent,
Zacc is there to highlight and unravel issues of anti-corruption at a national scale. But they have no powers to arrest once they have investigated. Police must step in and go deeper and put resources to issues, unlike Zacc.
I would like to see a closer and better relationship between Zacc and the police to make things happen. Only when police do a good job can people be prosecuted. The judiciary works on the dockets and if they don’t there is no prosecution, you can see the value chain.
…Without active collaboration and participation of police who then inform the judiciary, they won’t prosecute cases. The public is dying to see some people in jail, but how can they be when there are no dockets?
