The People’s Democratic Party, PDP has castigated the entire Zanu PF leadership for being corrupt and have asked them to resign for the good of the country. The PDP claims that all the economic woes bedeviling Zimbabwe can be traced back to the corrupt activities of senior Zanu PF officials in state owned enterprises and local authorities. PDP Youth President, Moses Manyengavana took aim at Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa, Minister of Home Affairs Ignatius Chombo, Finance minister Patrick Chinamasa and Higher education minister Jonathan Moyo among some of the corrupt Zanu PF officials.
Here are excerpts from PDP’s statement:
It is shocking that the level of looting in government parastatals and the local authorities has led to workers going for months without receiving their salaries while some public institutions like the Harare Central, Parirenyatwa and Mpilo hospitals have to stopped carrying out life-saving surgical procedures as they have no pain killers and reliable water supplies
Every year, Auditor-General Mildred Chiri has been exposing how senior government officials have been involved in high level criminal abuse of state resources but unfortunately no arrests have been made following the exposures and the looting by these Zanu PF officials continues.
The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) is also investigating how the $1, 6 million that was released by the Treasury for the Media Panel Inquiry (Impi) was used amid concerns that equipment and vehicles acquired for the programme cannot be accounted for.
