BREAKING: Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commissioners Resign

The commissioners of the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) have resigned today. The president’s office issued a statement today by Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet Dr Misheck Sibanda :

“…the President Cde ED Mnangagwa has accepted the resignation of the Chairman of the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission, Dr Job Whabira, with effect from 31 January 2019. Furthermore, His Excellency the President accepts the resignation of the rest of the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commissioners with effect from 31 January 2019,”

A ZBC report says President Mnangagwa will soon appoint a new chairman of ZACC in terms of Section 254 (1a) of the constitution of Zimbabwe Number 20.

Earlier this month, the ZACC commissioners were reportedly summoned by the president and advised that they had been ineffective and that the commission would be dissolved. The commissioners were reportedly involved in corruption themselves. It may, therefore, be the case that they have been asked to resign.

  1. kana vakaita corrupt ngavasungweka. resign for wht wthout prosecution ..ko wakadii kuti ma change money resign not ten year jail term.dont u c thus unfair kungotiwo hauoni .

  2. The dilema is corruption is best tackled from 1980 to date and short of that it will be a great speculation and even a case of great injustice to Zimbabweans both the dead and the living. Reality of justice and conscience do mismatch by great orders and this resignation makes one of the logical outcomes…and a step on seeking justice not as by law but above all by faith.
