News:Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission Suspends 19 For Suspected Corruption

<vote /> The Zimbabwe Ant-Corruption Commission has suspended 19 of it's employees for alleged corruption, insubordination and divulging the organisation’s secrets.

The suspensions were effected yesterday, according to a statement by Zacc chairperson Job Whabira.

Part of the statement read,

The 19 have been suspended on the following allegations – fraud, corruption, insubordination, failure to obey lawful instructions, absence from duty without official authority, divulging commission information to outsiders in breach of the Official Secrets Act, as well as giving false information to outsiders about the commission.

The workers said it was surprising that the suspensions came two days after they signed letters confirming to management that they were pursuing the $1,5 million arbitral award they won at the Labour Court in 2014. Zacc sources told NewsDay the workers were suspended to force them to withdraw their pending labour cases against the commission.
