“Fellow Zimbabweans, Ndini @MhepoYeNyika, a senior ZACC employee. It is my sworn duty to stand for truth and justice and to reveal to the public the deplorable level of corruption that has plagued our country,” the hacker said in their first post after gaining control of the ZACC X account.

“I can no longer stay silent while our nation is destroyed by corruption at the highest levels. Instead of arresting and charging #Chivayo for his serious crimes, we are pressured to focus on distractions; kuitiswa #zvembudzi, while we have the evidence to nail the true kingpin,” the hacker added.
