Jonathan Moyo’s hideout revealed, Mnangagwa to bring him back

Zimbabwean police have launched a manhunt for a former minister who fled to Kenya after defrauding Ksh40 million from a government kitty.

Jonathan Moyo fled Zimbabwe during the November 2017 coup and Kenyan media has revealed that the former Zimbabwean minister is hiding in that country.

He reportedly swindled the cash from Zimbabwe Manpower Development Fund (ZIMDEF) when he was the Minister for Higher and Tertiary Education.

Zimbabwean media reported that he is wanted for a slew of corruption charges stemming from his alleged abuse of millions of dollars from the fund.

The move comes as the Southern Africa State invoked the Money Laundering and Proceeds of Crime Amendment Act to seize properties of individuals who fled the country to avoid trial over corruption allegations.

There are reports that the government is also mulling using diplomatic channels to extradite the former minister.

This was revealed by the head of the Special Anti-Corruption Unit in the Office of the President and Cabinet (SACU) Tabani Mpofu.

“We have accused persons who have absconded; we want to look at enforcing the bail conditions.

“Also procedures have commenced using bilateral and multilateral relationships to have the accused persons brought to book,” Mpofu mentioned.

Mpofu further indicated the dragnet will not spare high-ranking Government officials, who face the possibility of losing properties they surrendered as surety for bail.
