On Friday, the Zimbabwe Anti Corruption Commission interrogated the Minister of Health and Child Care, Dr Obadiah Moyo and the former permanent secretary Dr Agness Mahomva over the procurement of overpriced personal protective equipment (PPEs).
Zim Morning Post reports that the interrogation degenerated into chaos after Mahomva accused Moyo “of handpicking the controversial company, Drax International.” Speaking to the publication, an anonymous source said:

The two, Moyo and Mahomva arrived around 5:30 pm and left around 2130 hours.
The interrogation turned nasty as Mahomva fumed that her stint at the health ministry was marred by the minister’s interference.
Mahomva’s statement comes at a time when officials from the president’s office said Drax failed security checks but the health minister went ahead to deal with such a “shelf company.”
It also comes after the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development, George Guvamatanga who authorised the procurement absolved himself of any wrongdoing saying he exchanged several correspondences with the Health Ministry, the president’s office and the National Pharmacy where he raised a red flag over the deal.
He added that his hands were tied on the matter.
