Mnangagwa Nominates SB Moyo's Wife As ZACC Chair4 years ago
President Emmerson Mnangagwa has chosen High Court judge, Justice Loice Matanda-Moyo (pictured), who is also Foreign Affairs minister Sibusiso Moyo’s wife, to be the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (Zacc) chairperson.
The Zimbabwe Independent reports Mnangagwa last week informed the Standing Rules and Orders Committee (SROC) of parliament of his decision to appoint Matanda-Moyo as Zacc chairperson. Some legislators have however questioned her partiality since her husband is a cabinet minister and retired lieutenant-general, who played a prominent role in Mnangagwa’s rise to power. They argued that her appointment would compromise the credibility of Zacc.
According to Section 254 of the constitution, the chairperson of the commission is appointed by the president after consultation with the committee on Standing Rules and Orders. MDC legislators who make up the SROC refused to vote for Matanda-Moyo but Zanu PF MPs went ahead and unanimously approved of her.
