Former NetOne Chief Executive Officer, Reward Kangai who recently come out guns blazing accusing Zimbabwe Anti Corruption Commission of attempting to whitewash the corruption charges against the ICT Minister, Supa Mandiwanzira has been arrested.

Kangai ‘s charges are unknown and he is currently detained at Avondale police station until his court appearance tomorrow.

On Sunday , the Zacc boss has exonerated ICT minister Supa Mandiwanzira of any wrongdoing on charges of corruption raised by former NetOne chief executive officer, Reward Kangai.

“We received a complaint by one Reward Kangai against minister Mandiwanzira, but we also simultaneously received a report from NetOne against the same Kangai,” he said.

“We investigated the $4 million that Kangai alleged the minister had paid to Megawatt and we found out that there was no $4 million paid to anybody at Megawatt. We had a court order, raided NetOne offices and looked at their bank statements, went to check at the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe and other banks. We established that no money was ever paid by NetOne that amounted to $4 million, so we disregarded that story.”

Nguni said instead Kangai and Harare businessman Agrippa Masiyakurima (Bopela) could soon be arrested.

“But NetOne complained against Reward Kangai in substantive cases of fraud and corruption in the awarding of tenders for base stations by a company called Bopela and we are on it. Very soon we will get to some action regarding that. So we are not covering up for any minister,” he said.
