Breaking! Chivayo to be arrested for money laundering

The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission is set to pounce on ex-convict Wicknell Chivayo, Moses Mpofu and Mike Chimombe for allegedly dealing in money laundering.

This is contained in a press release from ZACC which is in the hands of The Midweek Watch.

This follows the leaking of an audio allegedly by Zanu PF sympathizer, Chivayo and a letter of demand written to a South African company by Chimombe and Mpofu demanding a share of their loot from the US$40m gotten from ZEC for 2023 election material.

Chimombae is also likely to be questioned on the misuse of the presidential goats scheme.

Below is the full statement:

The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC/the Commission) has taken note of a letter purportedly written by Messrs Moses Mpofu and Mike Chimombe, to a South African based company, REN-form, demanding payment and resolution of a contractual dispute.

 “The Commission has also noted audios allegedly attributed to Mr. Wicknell Chivhayo. The letter and recordings raise issues related to money laundering and abuse of office that fall within the purview of the Commission.

 “Consequently, ZACC will be interviewing Messrs. Mpofu, Chimombe, and Chivhayo to gather more information and gain clarity on the matters highlighted. The Commission is also keen to interview Messrs Mpofu and Chimombe on the Presidential Goats Scheme mentioned in one of the audios.

“The Commission reaffirms its commitment to curb corruption and promote honesty, financial discipline and transparency in the public and private sectors, in line with the mandate outlined in Section 255 of the Constitution of Zimbabwe.

 “The public is encouraged to report any instance of corruption and to support the Commission’s efforts in promoting a corruption-free Zimbabwe”.
