Constitutionality of ED’s New Special Anti-Corruption Unit Questioned

The legality of the Emmerson Mnangagwa’s new Special Anti-Corruption Unit has been questioned. Tweeting about the development today, lawyer and aspiring member of parliament Advocate Fadzayi Mahere said:

The constitutionality of the decision to create a prosecution unit in the OPC is extremely doubtful. The Prosecutor Gen as head of the NPA is responsible for prosecution – ss258 & 259 of the Con. He must be independent per s260. What’s the legal basis of presidential involvement?

Speaking today in a video, Mnangagwa said:

I’m not happy with the pace at which corruption cases are being dealt with currently. As a result of that, I’m creating an anti-corruption unit of prosecutors in the Office of the President, directly responsible to me. I want this deal with now.
