ZACC Commissioners Acquire Guns After Death Threats

Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) chairperson, Justice Loice Matanda-Moyo, said she has been receiving death threats from unknown people.

As a result, Matanda-Moyo and her team of commissioners have acquired firearms for personal security.

Justice Matanda-Moyo told State media that the Commission will continue fighting graft without fear or favour. She said:

I have received a number of calls from people instructing me to drop certain cases involving political figures and other prominent people.

I still receive the calls with others threatening my life. Others were trying to influence me on how ZACC should operate, particularly telling me who should and should not be investigated.

… If someone decides to be violent he or she must be met with self-defence that is equivalent. Firearms become necessary for ZACC commissioners.

ZACC has reportedly stepped on the toes of powerful corruption cartels with over 200 corruption-related cases under investigation.
