Vice-President Kembo Mohadi has said the ongoing fight against corruption is not a witch-hunt against members of the G40 cabal.
This comes after MDC-T party’s secretary-general Mr Douglas Mwonzora claimed that the arrests and prosecutions of former Finance and Economic Development Minister Ignatius Chombo and former Zanu-PF Youth League leaders Messrs Kudzanai Chipanga and Innocent Hamandishe “were seemingly selective application of the law.” In an interview with The Chronicle yesterday, Mohadi dismissed Mwonzora’s claims of selective application of the law as “nonsensical” and unfounded. Said Mohadi:
It doesn’t work that way. We are targeting everyone who is a criminal and corrupt and those who are claiming that we are only targeting a certain group of individuals are talking nonsense and their claims are baseless and unfounded. We have courts where the issue of guilt or innocence will be proven. Whatever critics are saying is sheer waste of time as we are forging ahead in the fight against corruption until sanity is restored in all sectors of the economy in line with the Government thrust in the new dispensation.
