More ministers face Khama’s axe

President Ian Khama has initiated a clean up campaign of his Cabinet, and a number of ministers who are currently being investigated for corruption are expected to be dropped before the country goes to the elections next year.
President Khama last Thursday had a meeting with the Directorate of Public Prosecutions officials who informed him that they were planning to lay charges against outgoing assistant Minister of Finance and Development Planning, Guma Moyo.

The Sunday Standard can further reveal that the president was also briefed about another minister whose corruption case is expected to be registered with the magistrate court early next year.
It is understood that following the meeting with DPP officials, the president instructed law agents to forward to him dossiers on criminal records or any investigation against cabinet ministers and members of parliament.

It is understood that another minister, known to the paper, is also likely to face criminal charges and be dropped from cabinet before the next general election.

The minister who was hauled before the Central Police Station on a number of occasions is accused of fraud involving a business he was running before going to parliament.

It is understood that the alleged minister was a police customer at Central Police following some criminal acts that the minister committed before becoming a member of parliament.
