President Robert Mugabe yesterday said he will not defend senior government and Zanu-PF officials implicated in corrupt deals or abuse of public funds, vowing to let them face the full wrath of the law, provided there is sufficient evidence to support the allegations.

Mashonaland Central province, Mugabe said all government and ruling party officials accused of corruption should have their day in court. The 92-year-old leader, however, said he would not be pushed to act because of media reports.

Moyo and his deputy, Godfrey Gandawa, are being probed by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission for allegedly abusing Zimdef finances to ostensibly fund Zanu-PF activities and various developmental projects in their respective constituencies.

The duo has denied the allegations, claiming the charges were being raised for political expediency by their rivals in the ruling party. Mugabe added Zanu-PF was united, dismissing reports of the alleged factional fights as a creation of the media.
