Legal experts say there is need to capacitate the Zimbabwe Anti Corruption Commission (ZACC) to expeditiously deal with corruption cases in the country.

The call comes as the new political dispensation has shown the political will to deal with corruption.

The coming in of the new political dispensation has seen the arrest and prosecution of a number of culprits facing allegations of corruption by ZACC.

Legal experts say there is need to capacitate the commission which has a skeletal human capital to enable it to expeditiously deal with all cases of corruption.

Law Society of Zimbabwe president Mr Misheck Hogwe said there is need to put a legal framework that guarantees complete independence of the commission.

He said the use of human capital on secondment compromises investigations.

Another legal expert Mr Zivanai Makwanya believes the commission must employ experts that will deal with all forms of crimes diligently and professionally.

Decentralisation of ZACC must be a long term project if the country is to curb the vice and promote accountability in both the private and the public sector.

There are 20 investigators of which 11 are seconded from the police while ZACC has only nine.

In other jurisdiction, Botswana has a population of about 2 029 million and has 76 investigators.

In Zimbabwe there are over 13 million people and the anti corruption commission has only nine investigators.
