Harare ‑ Top officials from the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) have resigned en masse amid indications that president Emmerson Mnangagwa is restructuring the unit.
ZACC chairman Job Whabira resigned on Thursday, Misheck Sibanda, chief secretary to the cabinet, said.
“Furthermore, His Excellency, the President, accepts the resignation of the rest of the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commissioners,” said Sibanda in a statement.
“All the commissioners have gone on leave pending the finalisation of their terminal benefits.”
The restructuring of the anti-corruption body comes at a time when some of the commissioners have been accused of being corrupt and dabbling in Zanu-PF factional politics.
