The net is fast closing in on self-exiled former Higher and Tertiary Education minister Jonathan Moyo who is accused of misallocating over $400 000 from the Zimbabwe Manpower Development Fund (Zimdef) to non-core issues, the Daily News reported.
A week ago, government sent on forced leave Zimdef's top executives to pave way for a forensic audit to be facilitated by the Auditor-General.
Zimdef's chief executive officer Fredrick Mandizvidza; principal finance director and administrator Nicholas Mapute; human resources manager Ignatius Noah Kajengo; corporate legal secretary Servious Kufandada; chief accountant Ropafadzo Mukamba and senior revenue manager, James Gombarago have all been sent on forced leave.
Sources to the publication on Sunday (yesterday) reportedly said that the audit was meant to provide ammunition to those who are hotly in pursuit of Moyo to bring him back to Zimbabwe so he could have his day in court.
It is alleged that the "plan is to gather prosecutable evidence against Moyo and his underlings strong enough to nail them in the courts of law."
At some point, his foes might call for his extradition from wherever Moyo, who is currently in self-imposed exile, would be hiding to defend himself in the courts.
