'ZACC boss Goodson Nguni taking bribes from corruption suspects'

0

SHARP divisions have rocked the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (Zacc) with former First Lady Grace Mugabe’s name featuring prominently in a row that is dominated by Zanu PF factional politics.

Under-fire University of Zimbabwe Vice Chancellor Levy Nyagura and ICT Minister Supa Mandiwanzira have also been dragged into the dispute.

Commissioners have since petitioned the anti-graft body’s chair Job Whabira to act on Investigations Committee head Goodson Nguni whom they accuse of taking bribes and privately entertaining corruption suspects still under investigation.

Nguni has also been accused of threatening fellow commissioners and leaking information to the press. These include exposing the identities of whistle-blowers and witnesses whose lives he put in danger.

Commissioners further accuse Nguni of being too cosy with corruption suspects to a point of coaching them on how best they could sue Zacc.

But the defiant Nguni has denied the allegations and penned a strongly worded response to the chair, daring his colleagues to persist with the petition and each face a $250,000,00 law suit.

“This is denied,” Nguni said in response to claims he was politicising the commission.

“…What I bring to your attention is that it was Commissioners in Prevention and Human Resources who brought politics into the commission by inviting the leading light in the G40 cabal to launch the national strategic plan.

“The leading light of the G40 cabal’s names are Grace Mugabe and Kudzai Chipanga and the Commissioners said that Kudzai Chipanga, the former secretary for (Zanu PF) youth was representing all youths of Zimbabwe and the secretary for women’s affairs was representing all women of Zimbabwe.”

Nguni’s tirade is in the form of leaked memo he was directing at the Zacc boss.

G40, Lacoste rivalry

Since taking over from veteran leader Robert Mugabe last November, President Emmerson Mnangagwa has unleashed the State on his former Zanu PF rivals linked to the infamous G40 faction that tussled for party control with Mnangagwa’s Team Lacoste.

Although not a Zanu PF activist, Nguni is linked to Lacoste.

He adds, “In jest, I said that I was Lacoste as a way of demonstrating that some of you commissioners support G40 cabal and that their interest is in attacking Chairperson Investigations was to influence, stop and prevent further arrest of G40 cabal members.
