Parliament shall on Monday conclude the shortlisting of candidates that will participate in public interviews for appointment to the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC). Out of 133 applicants, only 10 will be appointed.
Speaking to The Sunday Mail, Clerk of Parliament Mr. Kennedy Chokuda said that the vetting process for those eligible for public interviews was almost complete.
We have been conducting a very rigorous vetting exercise of the applicants. As you may be aware, we closed the window for members of the public to raise objections against the candidates on March 26. So since then, we have been doing a thorough screening. The vetting is now almost complete.
We are almost done, and from as early as next week (this week), we will be good to go, I do not want to be specific on the date, just in case there may be any delays. Some candidates have since dropped out, while others have failed to meet the grade.
Out of the 133, there are some who failed to make the grade, but I am not at liberty to release their names.
A member of Parliament’s Committee on Standing Rules and Orders (CSRO) said that the shortlisting of candidates will be followed y the publishing of successful candidates. Those successful candidates will then participate in public interviews.
Critiques have however questioned the objectivity of the process.
