ZANU PF Zvishavane DCC chairman Mackey Jaravaza was over the weekend arrested for failure to account for bags of seed donated by the first lady Dr Auxilia Mnangagwa.
The ward 7 councillor spent a night in Gweru holding cells before he was then released to facilitate further investigations.
The seed was meant to be distributed to households in the district
In the past few months, party and government officials have been arrested for looting Presidential and Command Agriculture inputs.
President Mnangagwa declared zero tolerance on corruption and fired deputy Minister for Lands, Agriculture, fisheries, water and rural resettlement Douglas Karoro was arrested on allegations of grabbing 700 bags of fertiliser, US$18 000 worth of maize seed and 5 000 vegetable seed kits from Presidential inputs schemes between March and last month, and selling them.
