The ex-director stands accused of distorting facts regarding the acquisition of a guest house by NSSA in Kariba. While purportedly stating its price as US$240,000, the actual purchase amount was US$215,000. Allegations suggest that he pocketed the $25,000 difference for personal gain.

ZACC remains steadfast in its mission to investigate corruption cases across various sectors. The aim of the organisation is to foster transparency, accountability, and integrity in governance. The apprehension of Murewa serves as a stark reminder that perpetrators of corrupt practices will be relentlessly pursued and brought to justice, irrespective of their positions or social status.
