HARARE – Zanu PF member of parliament Justice Mayor Wadyajena has been arrested by Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) for fraud and money laundering involving USD$5 million.
ZACC confirmed the developments in a statement issued late Tuesday.
“The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission has arrested Gokwe-Nembudziva legislator Justice Mayor Wadyajena, Cottco officials Pius Manamike, Maxmore Njanji and Fortunate Molai, and Pierpont Moncroix Director Chiedza Danha on fraud and money laundering charges involving USD$5million,” the statement reads.
ZACC said the accused persons are expected in court tomorrow.
It remains to be seen if the case will not be another catch and release gimmick that has become the norm under the President Emmerson Mnangagwa government.
Last week, Zimbabwe Miners Federation (ZMF) president Henrietta Rushwaya was acquitted on charges of offering a bribe to an official at the Robert Mugabe International Airport after she was intercepted carrying 6kg of gold in 2020.
