William Gerald Mutumanje popularly known as Acie Lumumba has been picked up by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) for questioning.
Lumumba has been at the forefront in exposing corruption at the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ). The nature of the charges is not known at this time.
We are told he may face a number of corruption charges.
Yesterday, Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission commissioner in charge of investigations, Goodson Nguni, told the media the graft body was itching to probe Mutumanje.
“We are waiting for someone to write a letter with the allegations against Lumumba and after that we will ask the police to arrest him,” he said.
Mutumanje was last month briefly appointed as the head of a communications taskforce in the Finance ministry.
Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube was later pressured to sack him after he made staggering allegations on Facebook, on supposed illegal foreign currency dealings at the central bank – claims which shook Zanu-PF and the government to their core.
