Mugabe appoints anti-corruption team

2011-08-19 09:21

Johannesburg - Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has appointed a nine-member Anti-Corruption Commission to stem out corruption in the country, according to a report in Zimbabwe's Herald Online on Friday.

Denford Chirindo, who previously worked in the ministries of defence and justice and legal affairs, would chair the commission. He also worked with the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe as a senior logistics administrator from February 2006 to January this year.

Chirindo's deputy would be policy consultant Teresa Mugadza. She previously worked at the Women in Politics Support Network.

The other members are Goodwill Shana, Zivanai Rusike, Anna Chitsike, Emmanuel Chimwanda, Shepherd Gwasira, Elita Sakupwanya and Lakayana Duve.

In a statement this week, Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet Misheck Sibanda said the appointments were done in consultation with Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai and deputy Prime Minister Arthur Mutambara in line with the constitution of Zimbabwe and provisions of the Global Political Agreement.

"All the members appointed to the commission are persons of integrity chosen for their knowledge of and experience in administration or the prosecution or investigation of crime and/or for their suitability for appointment," Sibanda said.

The commission would be sworn-in by Mugabe at a date to be advised.
