The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) has said it has not yet received any formal complaint against one of its officers, Mr Eric Chacha on allegations of corruption.
ZACC spokesperson Commissioner John Makamure made the remarks on Monday following reports the commission had ignored the issue which had been brought to its attention.
Among those who reportedly filed letters of complaint to ZACC against Chacha are senior police officer Commissioner Erasmus Makodza, Chief Superintendent Joseph Josphat Matipforo and suspended Registrar-General Clement Masango.
In response, Makamure said:
_If it’s (Commissioner) Makodza, he knows the procedures. He can either make a report to the police if it’s criminal or file a complaint with ZACC. We have not received any complaint from him (Comm Makodza) or any other (person)._
_And those posting on social media, we have not received any complaints from them. So they should file a report because we can’t be investigating every report on social media._
In March, suspended Registrar-General Clement Masango wrote to the Police Anti-Corruption Unit copying The Chief Secretary, the Office of the President and Cabinet, The Chairperson, Public Service Commission, The Secretary for Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage, The Head, Special Anti-Corruption Unit (SACU) in the office of the President and Cabinet causing Machacha and ZACC chair Justice Loice Matanda-Moyo of criminal abuse of office.
Social media posts also claimed that Machacha who stays 80km from his workplace, drives an estimated 20km in and around Harare, making a total of 180km a day, was living beyond his expected lifestyle.
One Tongerai Rugare vehemently claimed that Machacha was funding his lifestyle through corruption..
The government previously indicated that it will conduct a lifestyle audit for all public officials but it is yet to conduct that audit.
