<vote /> The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) has reinstated eight of the 19 investigation officers it recently suspended for alleged corruption, insubordination and divulging the organisation’s secrets.
The remaining 11 officers, who all face similar charges, are still under investigation.
The eight, who were suspended for three months, were reinstated after serving only six days of their suspension, raising suspicions that senior managers at the anti-graft body could be vicitimising the workers.
ZACC chairperson Dr Job Whabira confirmed the reinstatement of the eight officers in letters dated August 5. Part of the letter reads,
Following your suspension from duty on the 28th of July and subsequent investigations carried out by the Commission, it has been established that you have no case to answer with regard to the allegations,” reads the letter. Please be advised that you are required to resume duty with immediate effect. You have to notify the human resources office on your resumption of duty.
ZACC spokesperson Ms Phyllis Chikundura yesterday said those reinstated were Matthew Sithole, Charles Sepe, Esnath Katsamba, Rufaro Kunyenda, Soneni Chavizha, Berstern Matope, Masimba Victor and Forbes Mupotsa.
All the suspended workers are on salary.
