In a telephonic interview recently, Makamure confirmed that his organistaion had teams who ware currently conducting investigations on local authorities and Bulawayo City Council was one of them.

The Commissioner would not be drawn to divulge more details on the scope of investigations regarding the embattled BCC saying the contents were of classified nature.

Recently, former South African Public Protector Kevin Sifiso Malunga said the Zimabwe Anti-Corruption Commission must investigate reports of corruption allegedly being committed by the controversial Mayor of Bulawayo His Worship Solomon Madlala Mguni and other councillors.

Malunga made the call after Mguni made headlines  being accused of using his office as mayor working in connivance with other councillors  to award themselves heavy discounts and waivers when purchasing residential and commercial stands around the city of Bulawayo.

According to reports Mguni and former Deputy Mayor,Tinashe Kambarami awarded themselves adjacent stands measuring 4 000 square metres each at the corner of Jessie Lloyd Road and Erica Hapburn Road in Ilanda. With other councillors allocated in-fill stands in Four Winds and Highmount.

"Time for ZACC and MDC Alliance to scrutinise and act on my last article on this subject and dig this deep. This is brazen corruption. All the ill-gotten property must be recovered by the state." Malunga posted on Twitter.

Mguni has accused unnamed  social media activists of using the social media to tarnish his image.
