Newly-appointed Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) chairperson, Loice Matanda-Moyo says that corruption is the main cause of the economic challenges that Zimbabwe is facing.
Matanda-Moyo, who is also the wife of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, SB Moyo, told journalists in Harare on Thursday that ZACC will deal with cases involving high profile members of society. She said:
I am a ZACC chairperson and my mandate is to deal with corruption and in analysing the situation, I have noted that the economic challenges are mainly caused by corruption as far as my mandate is concerned.
I am not dealing with sanctions that are not my portfolio, that is why I am saying corruption is causing these economic challenges that we are facing today.
ZACC will engage the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) to reach an understanding on matters that can be handled by the police and ZACC.
Our strategy is to have ZACC dealing with cases involving high-level corruption and cases involving high profile members of society.
Matanda-Moyo warned that in future ZACC will prefer charges of obstructing the course of justice to anyone interfering with investigations.
