Minister of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Ziyambi Ziymbi has denied that the Special Anti-Corruption Unit which was set up by President Emmerson Mnangagwa is usurping the powers of the National Prosecution Authority. Ziyambi said the unit was made up of volunteers who were not being paid for their service by the government. Said Ziyambi,
We have one National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) and we have within the office of the President a Special Anti-Corruption Unit that was set up, manned by experienced former prosecutors…This unit does not have prosecutorial powers. It was a way of strengthening the NPA’s capacity to prosecute. There are clear roles that are there without usurping the powers of the NPA by the unit…these prosecutors are volunteering. They are not being paid, but they have said they are patriotic Zimbabweans who want to help their country in the fight against corruption.
