Zimbabwe to establish special courts to tackle corruption

Plans are underway to establish special courts which will deal with corruption to be opened in the first half of 2017.

Officially opening Mvuma Magistrate’s court, acting President Emmerson Mnangwagwa said:

I am reliably informed that the stakeholders in the “Against Corruption Together” campaign have drafted a protocol designed to assist them in structuring mechanisms for the establishment of special courts for the management and trial of corruption-related cases. It will be commissioned soon. Those special courts must be operational in the first half of 2017.

It is only with acceptance of the reality that the scourge of corruption and the willingness to openly tackle it that Zimbabwe stands a better chance of winning the battle against it. Government on its part, is ready to support any initiative to fight corruption. “We, in Government, will never be fatigued in that battle as it is the only way in which the economic recovery of Zimbabwe can be guaranteed.
