President Emmerson Mnangagwa will set up a committee to investigate allegations of corruption levelled against senoir Zanu-PF and government officials by the youth league on Monday.

This was resolved at the party's politburo meeting in Harare on Wednesday.

Among the high profile people accused of corruption is Zanu-PF secretary for administration Obert Mpofu, Tourism minister Prisca Mupfumira, Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe boss John Mangudya among others.

"ZANU-PF PF Politburo has resolved that while the Youth League may not have followed procedure, however corruption must be denounced at all levels. There must be Zero tolerance to corruption," said Zanu-PF on its Twitter page.

"His Excellency Emmerson Mnangagwa will constitute a commission of enquiry to investigate the allegations presented by the National Youth League, this was unanimously endorsed by the politburo.

"However the Youth League has been reminded to stick to procedure. The Youth League has said it will be bringing more allegations."
