E.D appoints Acting Tourism Minister

President Mnangagwa has appointed Industry and Commerce Minister Nqobizitha Mangaliso Ndlovu as Acting Minister of Environment,Tourism and Hospitality Industry since Minister Mupfumira was denied bail last Saturday.She was remanded to 21 days in custody ,as the court decided that she could use her ministerial position to interfere with investigations.

The state invoked section32 of the Criminal Procedure and Evidence Act ,which allows it to seek the further detention of a suspect upto 21 days to conduct further investigations.

Following this rule President Mnangagwa appointed Minister Ndlovu as Acting Minister to allow the ministry to continue running its operations with supervision .

Minister Mupfumira was arrested last Thursday by Zimbabwe Anti Corruption Commission (ZACC) on allegations of corruption involving $95 million of National Social Security Authority (NSSA) funds.
