In a statement posted on its Twitter handle on Wednesday, the anti-corruption body said:
ZACC wants to set the record straight on the arrest of the Anglican Bishop Erik Ruwona: he and his accomplices took a loan from Agribank of US$700 000.00 in 2016 purportedly for the construction of St Catherine Girls School Rusape and converted the loan to personal use.

According to ZACC, Ruwona used a piece of land belonging to the church as collateral to obtain the loan without official authorisation. The money was not used for its intended purpose.
