PRESSURE to have Higher and Education, Science and Technology Development Minister Professor Jonathan Moyo prosecuted over corruption allegations intensified yesterday after a Harare vendor approached the High Court seeking an order compelling police to arrest the minister.

Prof Moyo has been in the news since his foiled "arrest" at the last Politburo meeting in Harare last week on allegations of abusing public funds.The minister is accused of abusing $450 000 from the Zimbabwe Manpower Development Fund (Zimdef).

In an application filed in the High Court yesterday evening under a certificate of urgency, the vendor, Mr Hardlife Mudzingwa also seeks an order for the Executive to distance itself from Minister Moyo's prosecution.

He listed Prof Moyo, Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko, Commissioner-General of Police Dr Augustine Chihuri and the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZAAC) as respondents.
