Zacc invited to attend Parly's PAC hearings

Published: 14 October 2019
THE MDC has called on the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (Zacc) to attend Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee meetings for them to identify economic looters testifying before the committee.

The call was made by MDC legislator for Kambuzuma Willias Madzimure during a policy dialogue meeting between legislators and the media, which was organised by the Southern African Parliamentary Support Trust in conjunction with the Zimbabwe Coalition on Debt and Development.

"We have discussed as PAC that we will extend an invitation to Zacc come to our hearings because they are public.

"In Uganda, the police actually sit in on PAC hearings and they can use the evidence, because the evidence that you give to PAC, you give it under oath so you cannot go back on the statement that you give," he said.

The Tendai Biti-led committee, which already sits with the auditor-general in its portfolio meetings, has been praised for exposing the rot in government departments as well as in the private sector.
