More witnesses come forward to incriminate ex-Minister Jorum Gumbo. Policy implementation minister Joram Gumbo’s freedom could be short-lived after Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) told the Zim Morning Post Tuesday afternoon that they deliberately stalled his initial court hearing to accommodate more evidence.

“When the story of his arrest came out, more people have come forward with further evidence of corrupt activities,” ZACC chairperson Justice Loice Matanda-Moyo told the Zim Morning Post.

“Currently ZACC is recording statements from the witnesses and then record warned and cautioned statement from the accused. Additional charges of corruption are being preferred.” “He will be taken to court on all charges,” Matanda Moyo said.

Gumbo was seemingly out of trouble on Tuesday morning when he arrived at the Harare magistrates court for initial court hearing in which he is facing charges of corruption and abuse of office while in charge at the Transport ministry.

It appeared he was out of the woods when he was escorted to the Zacc head office after briefly appearing at the courts.

Insiders said the anti-graft body intended to add more charges on the former Transport Minister. Arresting details had also not presented a warned and cautioned statement to Gumbo for one of the charges, resulting in the trial failing to take-off.
