A manhunt has intensified for former Zimbabwe National Roads Administration (Zinara) acting chief executive officer, Moses Julius Juma, who is on the run after losing a High Court appeal against his conviction and sentence on abuse of office charges.
Juma was first arrested in 2016 on charges of abusing his office, but was released after former Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko stormed Avondale Police Station and demanded his immediate release.
He was rearrested in 2018, and then tried, convicted and sentenced to 30 months in prison, and was supposed to serve two years in jail after six months were suspended from his sentence.
In a statement on Thursday, the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC), implored the public to assist with leads on Juma’s whereabouts.
“ZACC is still appealing to the public for information leading to the arrest of fugitive former Zinara acting CEO Moses Julius Juma.
“Anyone with information on his whereabouts to advise ZACC on WhatsApp number 0719529483 or anonymously on zacc.online/tipoffs or landlines 0242307065/6/7 and 0242369602/5/8/14.”
