President Robert Mugabe reportedly blocked the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission from causing the arrest of High and Tertiary education minister Jonathan Moyo on alleged fraud charges involving over a half a million dollars.

Moyo is alleged to have siphoned the money from the Zimbabwe Manpower Development Fund to bankroll First Lady Grace Mugabe's rallies and the Zanu PF youth league's million man march.

He is also alleged to have used some of the money for campaign purposes in his Tsholotsho North Constituency early this year. Moyo is accused of benefiting from close to $270 000 which was corruptly siphoned out of ZimDef by ministry and fund officials.
