The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions has disclosed that it is geared up to take on all cases involving suspects behind the plunder of K6.2 billion Covid-19 funds.
Director of Public Prosecutions Dr Steven Kayuni made the remarks in an interview but refused to comment much citing Police are handling the matter.
However, Kayuni said his office will be able to provide comment next week on the wayward of cases.
But speaking to Timveni, National Police spokesperson James Kadadzera said, "Law enforcers are still on the ground carrying out arrests of those implicated in the audit report."
According to Kadadzera, as of last Friday 61 people have been arrested in connection with the plunder of Covid-19 resources.
Meanwhile One of the country’s social commentators Humphreys Mvula has tipped the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions to "take an active role in the swift prosecution of the cases" related to the K6.2 Billion Covid-19 resources.
Mvula said the office of the DPP has quality law personnel to carry out such a task.
