Mugabe Set To Expose Corrupt Ministers In Zimbabwe

Following allegations of paying lip service to the fight against corruption, Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe is expected soon to name and shame ministers in his cabinet that were said to have over the years been involved in corrupt practices.

Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa made this known at an event in Harare and said the country’s First Lady, Grace Mugabe’s involvement in politics has helped the government discover how deeply rooted corruption has been in the southern African country.

“Corruption has been rampant in the private and public sector for years and the coming into politics of First Lady Dr Grace Mugabe allowed us a window of opportunity to see corruption, which was being committed by the big fish,” Mnangagwa said.

“I will not give names, but the president will when the time comes,” the Vice President promised.






     

     

    “He said there would be no sacred cows and nobody would be spared. Those caught in the net will be prosecuted while those who are clean will be left to do their work,” Mnangagwa quoted Mugabe as saying..

    Many of Mugabe’s sacked cabinet members, including former Vice President Joice Mujuru have been accused of corruption, with the threat of prosecution hanging over their heads.

    There have been speculations that Majuru faces arrest and with the recent remarks by Mnangagwa that the country is serious about stemming corruption, the speculations have only grown.

    The ruling Zanu PF has always been faulted for not doing enough stop corruption in Zimbabwe, something that appears to be changing.
