A few days after been appointed Chairman of the Ministry of Communication task force William Mutumanje popularly known as Acie Lumumba was fired yesterday by the Minister of Finance Mthuli Ncube after unearthing gravy corruption in the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe.

Before he made these shocking remarks on his Facebook account he actually knew what was following next as he had already tweeted that his video was put his job at risk.

“Tonight I will talk about the alarming levels of corruption sadly within my own Ministry. I have no idea how we allowed it to get this far. Might not have a job after this but the people deserve to know how their country is being run! See u on FBlive 9PM” he said.

Not only was Lumumba fired but also Tazzen Mandizvidza was suspended from the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Services due to some pending issues that date as far as 2014. The letter below summarizes his suspension.

The ZBC said Mandizvidza had failed to honour an out of court settlement reached in 2015 in which the journalist, then on suspension, was to be reinstated and in return he would reimburse the state broadcaster over $1 million lost in bad financial transactions made under his watch.
