A former civil society leader, Mfundi Mlilo, is pushing for the arrest of Finance and Economic Development Minister Mthuli Ncube for his “disastrous economic policies” and alleged criminal conduct which have pushed the country to the brink of economic implosion.
Through an affidavit written on his behalf by Mafume Chambers to Prosecutor General (PG) Kumbirai Hodzi, Mlilo cited Ncube’s irregular appointment of William Mutumanje, also known as Acie Lumumba, as the Ministry’s spokesperson. Mafumbe Chambers wrote:
Our client is of the firm view that the public is in great danger from the propensity of the said individual (Ncube) to implement measures outside the law and then change the law to suit criminality as an afterthought.
Our client has asked us to request that you perform your constitutional duty to prosecute the criminal complaints contained herein.
Our client has instructed us to furnish your office with an affidavit that details his complaint and is available to elaborate further in person.
Last year, Lumumba sensationally claimed that four senior Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) officials were guilty of corruption. He later admitted to receiving US$40 000 to smear the four officials as well as business tycoon, Kuda Tagwirei.
