HARARE – President Emmerson Mnangagwa has sacked Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) Commissioner Frank Muchengwa with immediate effect after a court considered his unsuitability for the post.
The tribunal, headed by retired judge Nicholas Ndou, presented its report detailing its findings to President Mnangagwa at the State House on Thursday.
Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services secretary Nick Mangwana confirmed the decision to remove Muchengwa from office.
“The tribunal which was inquiring into the question of removal from office of Frank Muchengwa as a member of the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission in terms of section 237 as read with section 187 of the Constitution has completed its work.
“The tribunal has reported its findings to His Excellency, the President Cde Dr E.D Mnangagwa and has recommended that commissioner Frank Muchengwa be removed from office for acts of gross misconduct.
“Accordingly, His Excellency the president acting in terms of Section 187 (8) of the constitution, has removed Commissioner Frank Muchengwa from office with immediate effect,” said Mangwana.
Muchengwa was suspended in September 2020 following allegations of improper conduct levelled against him.
