JUST IN: ZACC Responds To Advocate Thabani Mpofu’s ‘Free’ Offer

Zimbabwe Anti-corruption Commission (ZACC) chairperson, Justice Loice Matanda Moyo has responded to Advocate Thabani Mpofu’s request to prosecute Chiadzwa diamonds and Command Agriculture looters.

On Thursday, Advocate Mpofu issued a statement “challenging” ZACC to allow him to prosecute the alleged criminals for free.

In an interview with Zim Morning Post on Friday morning, Justice Matanda Moyo said:

I am thrilled to note the offer to prosecute purported to have come from advocate Thabani Mpofu. Although I have seen the mesaage as a screenshot circulating on twitter, I haven’t been able to find the primary source of the offer.

I can only hope it came from the learned Advocate’s authentic handle. While I welcome his desire to jump into the ring and join the fight against corruption, let me categorically state that prosecution is the prerogative of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) which is led by the Prosecutor General (PG).

Our mandate as ZACC Is to investigate, arrest or detain and refer to NPA for prosecution. ZACC does not issue prosecution certificates and therefore I would urge the advocate to approach the NPA with his offer. I can only hope more people will step up to join this fight against corruption because this is the fight of our lives.
