Zimbabwean Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa has stressed that the long arm of the law will catch all corrupt government officials as only the President cannot be prosecuted while in office.

Responding to questions in the National Assembly here Wednesday, Mnangagwa said those with evidence of corruption by government Ministers and officials should forward it to the authorities.

"Let it be known that only the President enjoys immunity, all other citizens are equal before the law. If anyone is aware of any incidence where the law was broken, they should report to police," he said.

On allegations that Acting President Phelekezela Mphoko demanded the release of Zimbabwe National Road Authority officials who were facing fraud charges from police custody, Mnangagwa said those with evidence of such incidents should come forward to report.

"If any citizen witnesses breach of the law, they have the power to report such cases to the police," he said.

Last weekend, Acting President Phelekezela Mphoko criticized the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission for seeking to arrest Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development Minister Prof Jonathan Moyo, describing it as malicious and aimed at destabilizing the

government.

ZACC investors had wanted swoop on Prof Moyo and his deputy, Dr Godfrey Gandawa, for allegedly abusing 500,000 US dollars belonging to the Zimbabwe Manpower Development Fund and earmarked for human capital development.
