Breaking!!! Clerk of Parliament Kennedy Chokuda arrested for abuse of office

The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) has announced that it has arrested the Clerk of Parliament Kennedy Chokuda

Writing on its Twitter page, ZACC said the Clerk has been arrested for criminal abuse of duty as a public officer.

“ZACC has arrested Clerk of Parliament Mr Kennedy Mugove Chokuda for criminal abuse of duty as a public officer as defined in section 174 of the Criminal Law [Codification and Reform] Act Chapter 9:23.

“More details to follow…,” said ZACC.

Although ZACC did not give details of the abuse of duty, it is rumoured that the issue could have something to do with the overpriced laptop deal that Parliament had entered into with Blinart Investments and Mid-End Computer and Hardware.

The matter was currently under discussion in the Public Accounts Committee and it is not yet clear if the committee gave recommendations for Chokuda to be arrested.
