Higher and Tertiary Education minister Jonathan Moyo is ready to clear his name in the wake of a ruling by the ConCourt that threw out his application.

He said he was looking to the opportunity to present the appropriate evidence and facts that would once and for all clear his name.

The ConCourt dismissed Moyo's bid to challenge his arrest by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (Zacc) and his refusal to appear before a magistrate for criminal abuse of office.

The court yesterday ruled it would not be within its competence to determine the question of the lawfulness of his arrest.

Moyo was arrested last year by Zacc investigators after he and his deputy, Godfrey Gandawa, were accused of defrauding the Zimbabwe Manpower Development Fund (Zimdef) of over $400 000.

The Zanu-PF Tsholotsho North MP immediately approached the ConCourt challenging Zacc's arresting powers.
