Ziyambi reassigned over corruption

DEPUTY Prosecutor-General Florence Ziyambi has been relieved of her duties with immediate effect on allegations of corruption and maladministration at the National Prosecuting Authority.

Ziyambi, who last year unsuccessfully applied for the post of Prosecutor-General, has since been reassigned to the Office of the President and Cabinet with no specified duties.

Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet, Misheck Sibanda, informed Ziyambi of the changes in her employment contract in a letter dated March 15.

He said this was prompted by the findings of the Moses Chinhengo tribunal that recommended dismissal of Johannes Tomana as Prosecutor-General last year.

“Following finalisation of the investigations, the tribunal, among other recommended that there be leadership renewal in the NPA taking into account the level of deterioration of the institution, largely caused by corruption and maladministration,” Sibanda wrote.

“In this regard and order to instil public trust and confidence in the NPA, you are hereby transferred to the Office of the President and cabinet with immediate effect, until you are reassigned to another position.”

He said Ziyambi would continue to enjoy her conditions of service as if she was the DPG.

It remains unclear for how long she will remain in the pool or if she will finally be retired or resign from service. Sibanda was not immediately available for comment.

Ziyambi becomes the second senior NPA official to be removed from the NPA since last year after Tomana was fired by former President Robert Mugabe on charges of misconduct and replaced by Advocate Ray Goba.
