President Mnangagwa has disbanded the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) amid claims that it had become a white elephant, with some of the members allegedly involved in corrupt activities, while others were dabbling in factional politics.
Mnangagwa, through his officials, reportedly forced ZACC chairperson Job Whabira & his commissioners to resign so that a new team could be established following incessant pressure from his ambitious deputy Rtd General Chiwenga.
Justice Ministry secretary Virginia Mabiza is tipped to take over from Whabira. Govt sources said at least each commissioner was offered not less than $200 000 as exit package & 2 vehicles they were using to entice them to quit. In the build-up to the resignation, ZACC commissioners met VP Chiwenga & Justice Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi, where they were told to resign.
Although the announcement was made sources said Whabira tendered his resignation after the meeting with Chiwenga & Ziyambi, but held on as negotiations for an exit package were underway.
Other members of the outgoing commission are Nanette Silukhuni, Goodson Nguni, Christine Fundira, Denford Chirindo, Cathy Muchechetere, Farai Mashonganyika & Boyana Ndou.
