ZACC arrests fugitive ex-NSSA boss Murewa for fraud


Spread This News

By Staff Reporter


THE Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) has arrested former National Social Security Authority (NSSA) Director Brian Murewa on allegations of fraud.

Murewa had been on the run for over a year, according to a ZACC statement.

The anti-graft body’s officers besieged Murewa’s Borrowdale home on Wednesday, eventually arresting him more than a year after they sought him for interviews.

Murewa was part of the NSSA leadership that was suspended over corruption last year.

Efforts to locate him by ZACC officials were futile as investigations heated up.

“If we are appealing for public help, it means we have exhausted all the means to locate him,” said ZACC Spokesperson Thandiwe Mlobane last year.

ZACC did not specify when Murewa will be presented before court.

“ZACC has arrested the former Director Investment for the NSSA Brian Murewa, on allegations of fraud,” read its statement.

“Murehwa, who has been on the run for over a year, was arrested during a raid at his Borrowdale home in Harare.”455

By Tinei Tuhwe

A 23-year old Mozambican will spend the next 16 years in a Zimbabwean prison following his conviction and sentencing for raping a minor.

According to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), the convict, whose name was not given, was convicted by a Chipinge magistrate after a full trial.

Prosecutors proved that the rape took place on March 12 this year.

The complainant, aged 13, was on her way from their homestead to a nearby business center in Chipinge.

“He grabbed her by the shoulders and dragged her to a nearby bush where he threatened her with a knife before raping her,” said the NPA in a statement.

The court heard the victim screamed for help and was heard by a passerby who rushed to the scene and rescued her while the suspect grabbed his clothes and took to his heels.

The matter was reported to the police leading to the arrest of the perpetrator.

Nigeria recalls ‘toxic’ children’s cough syrup


Spread This News

By BBC 


NIGERIA’S drug regulator has recalled a batch of Johnson & Johnson children’s cough syrup after tests showed it contained “an unacceptable high level” of a toxic and potentially fatal substance.

The substance, Diethylene glycol, “was found to cause acute oral toxicity in laboratory animals”, Nigeria’s National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) said on Wednesday

It added that human consumption of the Diethylene glycol results in toxic effects, including abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhoea, inability to pass urine, headache, altered mental state, and acute kidney injury which may lead to death.

The substance has been linked to the recent deaths of dozens of children in Cameroon and The Gambia.

Laboratory tests on the recalled Benylin Paediatric syrup also showed that it caused “acute oral toxicity in laboratory animals”, the regulator added.

Neither Johnson & Johnson nor Kenvue – which owns the Benylin brand after becoming independent from Johnson & Johnson last year- have commented on the NAFDAC’s statement.

The syrup was manufactured in South Africa in May 2021 and had an expiry date of April 2024.

The syrup’s packaging says it can be used for relieving cough and congestive symptoms and for treating fever and other allergic conditions among children aged between two and 12 years.
