The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission has completed its docket against Tourism Minister Prisca Mupfumira and she will appear on court on Friday.

Mupfumira was arrested by Zacc on Thursday in connection with corruption at Nassa when she was Public Service Minister.

Mupfumira becomes the first sitting Cabinet Minister to be arrested under President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s fight against corruption.

She was recently named by the Zanu PF youth league as part of a list of political and business persons who were sabotaging the economy through acts of corruption.

Reports suggest that Mupfumira’s emanates from her time as Minister of Labour and Social Services and has to do with the National Social Security Authority (NSSA).
