ZACC Arrests Senior Military Officer

The Zimbabwe Anti-corruption Commission (ZACC) has confirmed the arrest of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces director of procurement, Peter Muchakadzi, and two other officers on fraud allegations.

Muchakadzi was arrested following repeated calls for the arrest of military barons alleged to have looted foodstuffs, fuel and accessories at military barracks. ZACC spokesperson John Makamure said:

I can confirm that Zacc has arrested the ZDF director of procurement and two of his officers.

NewsDay reports that Muchakadzi was last night being held at Mabelreign Police Station and is expected to appear in court this Thursday, where the full charges will be presented.

The arrests come as reports are claiming that 30 tonnes of beef meant for Mbalabala Recruitment and Training Depot had gone missing, while a Brigadier General is alleged to have stolen a newly-acquired army bus.
