“It’s Premature To Celebrate Obadiah Moyo’s Arrest” – MDC Alliance

The opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) Alliance has said it is premature to celebrate the arrest of Dr Obadiah Moyo, the Minister of Health and Child Care who is accused of abusing COVID-19 response funds.

Moyo was arrested by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission on Friday. Some reports suggest that he has since been released at the instigation of President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Posting on Twitter, the Nelson Chamisa led party said:

It’s premature to celebrate #ObadiahMoyo‘s arrest given the system’s pattern of catch & release. The matter is of great concern to the national interest because corruption is killing us. We demand a thorough televised trial/inquiry. #PayBackTheMone

Meanwhile, the ruling Zanu PF has described Moyo’s arrest as proof that the Mnangagwa led administration is committed to fighting corruption. The party said:

The arrest of minister Obediah Moyo is further proof that the Government led by cde ED is serious about fighting corruption.

Moyo is one of many government officials who have in the recent past been accused of engaging in underhand dealings that have robbed the country of millions of dollars.

Transparency International estimated in 2016 that Zimbabwe is losing at least US$1 billion annually to corruption with government officials among the worst offenders.

  1. One does not celebrate the arrest of anyone. One may celebrate justice being done when called for.
