Investigations by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) showed that the money went to personal business.
Commissioner Goodson Nguni, who chairs the ZACC investigations Committee, dismissed claims by Prof Moyo that the money had been used to fund Zanu-PF activities such as the One Million-Man March, Women and Youth League meetings.
Nguni said investigations revealed that all the money from Zimdef was used to offset personal loans, buy personal furniture and was also deposited into the accounts of journalists.
Nguni said the paper trail showed that money would be deposited into a Fuzzy Technologies bank account before being used to pay for various things, including journalists.
He produced a bank statement which indicated that former Chronicle Editor Mduduzi Mathuthu received $2 500, while $50 000 was paid to a private media journalists-owned non-governmental organisation in Bulawayo.
