CSRO to steer ZACC commissioners interviews

The high court has ruled that the Zimbabwe Anti-corruption Commission (ZACC) interviews for commissioners on Friday must be steered by a full Committee on Standing Rules and Orders (CSRO) of parliament and not subcommittees.

The court also ruled that the interviews should be held non-stop until the last candidate has been interviewed. The ruling follows an application by Harare lawyer Mr Tinomudaishe Chinyoka, a nominee to the position of ZACC commissioner, challenging the selection process set for June 21.

He was suing speaker of parliament advocate Jacob Mudenda and senate president Mabel Chinomona, who were listed as respondents.

Justice Benjamin Chikowero granted the application by Mr Chinyoka by consent of both parties’ lawyers — advocate Lewis Uriri representing Mr Chinyoka and a Mr K. Tundu, acting for the respondents.

At least 38 candidates are set to be interviewed.
