WikiLeaks Probe No Sacred Cows – Tomana

“We are actually going to look at anything that violates our Constitution and our laws and we will take action against anybody who does that,” Tomana told Radio VOP in an exclusive interview on Tuesday.

There are fears Tomana, who is being accused by President Robert Mugabe’s opponents of sparing the veteran leader’s loyalists from criminal prosecutions, would develop cold feet after it turned out top Zanu (PF) officials also met US diplomats secretly to pour out on the party’s secrets.

Although there are no casualties yet, Tomana’s probe took off early this year after the first WikiLeaks cables implicated Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai as having begged the US to maintain its sanctions on President Mugabe and his allies for failure to abide by the unity agreement.

The probe was seen as a witch hunt on the MDC-T leader that was aimed at weakening his strong challenge on the veteran leader’s 31 year old stranglehold on power.

Tomana said he would not seek any politician’s authority to proceed with his investigations insisting he was an autonomous individual.

“The investigating authority is the ZRP and the prosecuting authority is me so there are no sacred cows. We will prosecute anybody who is found to have committed an offence. We do not know on anybody who has been made a sacred cow by our constitution,” he said.

Tomana would not attach a date on when the first Wikileaks prosecutions would begin saying “an investigation is very unpredictable in its nature”.

The latest round of US diplomatic cables released by the website brought astonishing revelations of President Robert Mugabe’s party officials having met US diplomats clandestinely to discuss issues that have long been labelled taboo within Zanu (PF).
