Corrupt officials won’t be arrested without evidence says Mnangagwa


POLICE will not arrest individuals for alleged corruption without any evidence to back up the charges, acting President Emmerson Mnangagwa said on Thursday.

Mnangagwa was in Bulawayo yesterday  for a constitutional advocacy meeting.

“Very serious allegations have been raised against various people in the press but police have to investigate, the same goes for you if you say allegations against someone.

He added, “If you have evidence of anyone, including me, go and report then police will drag the big fish to court,” he said.
