In a series of posts on X, the hacker expressed frustration with ZACC’s perceived reluctance to arrest and charge Wicknell Chivayo, despite having evidence of his alleged crimes.

“I can no longer stay silent while our nation is destroyed by corruption at the highest levels. Instead of arresting and charging #Chivayo for his serious crimes, we are pressured to focus on distractions; kuitiswa #zvembudzi, while we have the evidence to nail the true kingpin,” the hacker added.
