ZACC report Mphoko to Mugabe for interfering
Appearing before the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Defence, Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) chairperson Job Whabira said that they have reported Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko to President Robert Mugabe for interfering with their operations.
Political interference by Mphoko is among some of those elements that impinge upon the independence of the commission, but these will be resisted, as we forge ahead because the Constitution gives us power to complete investigations without fear or favour. On VP Mphoko’s issue, what happened is that we (Zacc) took the issue to the President through the chief secretary to the Cabinet, Misheck Sibanda, so that they take action on the interference.
Whabira said there was no interference from Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
