Zimbabwe’s former vice-president is a ‘fugitive of justice’
Phelekezela Mphoko ‘fears for his life’ as the country’s anti-corruption commission is on his heels
Harare — Zimbabwe’s former vice-president, Phelekezela Mphoko, is now a “fugitive of justice”, the state-controlled newspaper Chronicle reported, citing Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission spokesperson John Makamure.
Mphoko lost his job when former president Robert Mugabe was ousted in November 2017. On Tuesday, he was driving to a meeting with anti-corruption officials in the city of Bulawayo when he made a U-turn and fled, Makamure told the newspaper.
