The Nelson Chamisa led MDC challenged the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (Zacc) chairperson Justice Loice Matanda-Moyo to "investigate and arrest" her husband Foreign Affairs Minister Sibusiso Moyo after the arrest of Tourism Minister Priscah Mupfumira early Thursday.

MDC deputy spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka poured cold water describing the arrest as a non-event.

"The real corrupt barons remain free in government, that US$3 billion recently went missing is a case in point and no one has been arrested.

"These people in Zanu-PF cannot treat corruption. It is like sending a mosquito to cure malaria. Mnangagwa is named in a top UN report for having looted diamonds in the DRC, also named are SB and Sydney Sekeramayi," said Tamborinyoka.

"Moyo was actually director-general of COSLEG a company which they used in DRC and now it is his wife chairing Zacc. If Matanda-Moyo is sincere then the dragnet is sure to end up in her own matrimonial bed."

Added Tamborinyoka: "It is our belief that cancer in the country, we shed no tear for anyone arrested."

COSLEG, was a joint venture of Congo Comiex and the Zimbabwe Defence Forces' Operation Sovereign Legitimacy formed by Zimbabwe's army and those linked to it in the late 1990s to pursue timber and minerals interests in DRC's Katanga Province.

Zimbabwe had been invited into the DRC by the late President Laurent Kabila who wanted help to stave off an insurrection. Kabila was to be killed by his own bodyguard, paving the way for his son Joseph to take over power.

A 2002 United Nations (UN) report implicates the company in massive plunder of DRC diamonds.
