Zimbabwe's opposition is talking up an anti-Robert Mugabe coalition for the 2018 elections but differences over strategies and implementation are threatening the establishment of such an electoral alliance.

Harare – A Zimbabwean minister accused of corruption has reportedly handed himself to the country's anti-graft unit, the Zimbabwe anti-Corruption Commission (Zacc).

According to the state-owned Herald newspaper, Higher Education Minister Jonathan Moyo handed himself to Zacc in the presence of his lawyers on Wednesday.

Reports indicated that Moyo and his deputy Godfrey Gandawa allegedly embezzled a combined amount of $400 000 from the taxpayer funded Zimbabwe Manpower Development Fund (Zimdef). 

A NewsDay report said that Moyo handed himself over to the anti-graft agency, ending weeks of mudslinging between him and country's opposition.
