Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko says there is need for the country to reconstitute the Zimbabwe Anti Corruption Commission (ZACC) and appoint people who can serve the nation diligently.

Cde Mphoko told journalists in Bulawayo that the nation is currently not benefiting from ZACC given that it is not serving the nation but paying allegiance to some individuals in the government.

He said while there has been rampant looting of precious minerals such as gold, diamonds and chrome, the anti corruption body is only obsessed about wanting to prosecute some individuals in government and some parastatals.

Cde Mphoko said the country needs a robust anti corruption unit which will deal with criminals that continue to commit economic crimes through illegal dealings in foreign currency.

Meanwhile, the Vice President has met members of the white community in Bulawayo to understand their position on the hand of reconciliation that was extended to them by President Robert Mugabe at independence.

He said their absence in the public space is a concern to government as they have a role in nation building.
