On Friday night Minister of Health and Child Care, Obadiah Moyo was arrested on allegations of criminal abuse of duty related to the procurement of Covid-19 drugs in a scandal which has since been termed Covidgate.
The former radio DJ, who used to go by the moniker DJ Biscuit, is expected to appear in court today after spending last night in police custody at Rhodesville Police Station.
Moyo is accused of endorsing and facilitating a procurement deal for Drax International, which is fronted by one Delish Nguwaya. Nguwaya who claims to have links to the First Family was arrested last week.
As usual, Zimbabweans took to social media to express their reactions to the embattled Minister’s arrest. Here is how some Zimbabweans reacted on social media,
So he was arrested & he didn’t sleep at the police station like everyone else!
This shows you that this is choreographed to placate you bcoz Obadiah Moyo was not alone, he represents his masters!
Mnangagwa is not bothered about corruption & LOOTING!
I said don’t celebrate yet! pic.twitter.com/N5I9shOwSj

I am really not excited by the arrest of Obadiah Moyo or anyone else for corruption… They are just unlucky dumbheads…
I will only be excited when the systems & processes that allow them to execute these obscenities are dismantled…
Others will just be smarter & loot

Health minister Obadiah Moyo has kept his job for two years after he was exposed for having questionable medical qualifications and he wouldn't have been arrested if there wasn't any public scrutiny in the Drax scandal. His arrest still no indication of resolve to fight graft

Obadiah Moyo's arrest might be just another #CatchAndRelease episode but what we can't take away from this is the lesson that if we all speak together with one voice against evil;We can move mountains.
Real victory is when we bring the whole ZanuPF system down!#PeoplePower

George Guvamatanga, the paymaster, surely should be sharing a cell with Obadiah Moyo @ZACConline? And while Interpol is still interested, FOLLOW THE MONEY. It will lead back right to the top

CATCH and RELEASE…
Chombo is still free
Mupfumira is still free

And you need to arrest those who released him last night to go home. He is said to have slept at his house before his initial remand appearance. Who assessed him to be a good candidate for the “night bail” he was given.
