Former Bulawayo Magistrate Batanai Tuwe who tendered his resignation letter last week on Monday and tweeted asking why civil servants are not telling President Robert Mugabe the truth about their working conditions and inadequate salary made a U-turn on his comments before deleting his Twitter account.
The Chronicle reports that in a series of tweets he said:
I apologise to my fellow magistrates for harming their reputation as well. I was by no means inferring you are corrupt. Apologies.
I realise I may have inadvertently offended my elders and the JSC and judges due to frustration. I did not intend to do that. I apologise.
As a show of courtesy and respect I have deleted those tweets. Sometimes frustration makes u (sic) disrespectful. It was not my intention I’m sorry.
Off to work. I must be honourable and serve my notice period and not act on frustration. Hope everyone has a pleasant day. Much Love.
