ZACC set to digitalise operations

By ZBC Reporter
THE ZIMBABWE Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) is set to go digital as the fight against graft goes a gear up.
A meeting between the Ugandan anti-corruption judge, Justice Lawrence Gugudu and Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) Chairperson, Justice Loice Matanda Moyo in Harare this Thursday morning outlined key strategies that have to be implemented to enhance effectiveness in dealing with cases of graft. Among several suggestions made for ZACC is the immediate installation of modern technology.
“We discussed several measures that can be immediately taken on board by ZACC to ensure that they improve their operations and one of these areas is to effectively ensure that they utilise technologies that remove the human interface. This will be critical in fighting graft,” said Justice Gugudu.
Zimbabwe has taken a firm stance against corruption and Justice Matanda Moyo says they will be implementing the recommendations as a way of widening the net and tighten the noose on offenders.
“The advice that we have got from our meeting was very critical and this we hope to be implementing very soon. We also managed to identify a number of areas that we can also develop and fine-tune for better performance,” noted Justice Matanda Moyo.
Zimbabwe is drawing lessons from Uganda in the fight against corruption and utilising the experience and expertise of Justice Gigudu to train officers from the Judicial Service Commission (JSC), National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), ZACC and the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP).
