Twenty-three Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) officers who were being trained by the Zimbabwe Republic Police in line with President Mnangagwa’s zero tolerance to the scourge will this week wind up their course. The training is part of measures put in place by the commission to restore public confidence, trust and credibility in the fight against corruption.

ZACC officers underwent a two-month training course covering subjects such as handling reports, compiling of dockets, managing suspects, Principles of Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure and Evidence Act, criminal justice system, organised crime, cybercrime, forensic investigation and weapons handling.

According to ZACC, the programme was being attended by lawyers, accountants, auditors and intelligence officers from ZACC, who had no experience and exposure to investigations as they were still fresh from college.

Addressing the officers at Morris Depot in Harare recently, ZACC secretary Mr Silence Pondo said they had no doubt that by the end of the two-month period, the officers will be more than ready to fight corruption.

“The subject of corruption has been and remains topical in the whole world and more so in developing countries like Zimbabwe as it is seen as a major deterrent to effective and sustainable development.

“Corruption often imposes major economic, political, social and human costs on a country and can sabotage development programmes across all sectors.

The focus of everyone is on how to contain the scourge,” he said.
Mr Pondo said the ZRP was a tried and tested organisation with a proven track record in investigating crime dating back to the pre-and post-independence era.

In February this year, ZACC committed that it will continue to restore broken public confidence, trust and dented credibility in the fight against corruption.

This was revealed by Mr Pondo during a national anti-corruption dialogue meant to discuss measures to fight corruption held in Harare.

He said public expectations were high for further intensification of the anti-corruption drive, adoption and implementation of bolder changes.

He said as the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission they strongly acknowledged that the task before them was a daunting one.

“We must carry forward the hope and expectations of the millions around the country and the world who remain impoverished and deprived of their basic human rights as a result of corruption. It is here at this strategic dialogue where we take the lead in restoring the broken confidence, trust and dented credibility, and foster an impregnable culture of zero tolerance for corruption.”

Mr Pondo said the successful fight against corruption would inevitably ensure accountability, transparency and good corporate governance in both private and public sector.
