Not Arresting Grace Is A Mockery Of Mnangagwa’s Zero Tolerance For Corruption: War Veterans

Former liberation warfighters have called on President Emmerson Mnangagwa to have former first lady Grace Mugabe arrested for corruption. The veterans are arguing that not arresting Grace after she was awarded a doctorate degree in 2014 in controversial circumstances by the University of Zimbabwe (UZ) calls into question the seriousness of president Emmerson Mnangagwa’s anti-corruption crusade.

In a statement, the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) said,

The president has made a clarion call to permanently destroy the vice of corruption, leaving no sacred cows. This means the conduct of all those who hold office, impacting on other people’s lives, should be open to rigorous public scrutiny and they must be held accountable without fear or favour.

It is mind-boggling that an institution like the University of Zimbabwe mandated to nurture and educate our young members of society is led by people who protect and cover-up corruption and abuse of office. Why should corruption at UZbe consider a sacred cow?

…These organs must perform the honourable task of explaining to the Zimbabwean public the exact circumstances, the procedures and all the processes followed in awarding Grace…a doctoral degree by UZ.

We cannot afford to have our education system marred by individuals who use their positions of office to circumvent rules, customs and practices that all others are subjected to. We shall leave no stone unturned in our demands.

  1. We are behind you like we did when you championed Mugabe’s downfall. Warvets are not politicians and have shown can be nationbuilders if they choose to be . Mnangagwa needs to take note lest we begin to suspect.

  2. Yes indeed the whole nation is with you on this one war vetsPerhaps Ed doesnt fully realise how damaging that one corrupt act did to the reputation of Zimbabwean education institutions and to the country as a whole. Universities attract students from all over the world in a very competitive market, hence b failing to deal decisively with the matter y procrastinating, ED’s gov is shooting itself in the foot.

  3. Mnangagwa has truly shown that he is all hat but no cowboy, all sizzle but no beef, all froth but no beer. Grace Mugabe’s case is a clear example that the so called new dispensation is not serious in fighting individuals who have brought our educational institutions into disrepute. Meanwhile Mnangagwa must know we are watching him and that he cannot fool everyone all the time.

  4. that’s the problem you have you vets, you chose where to strike depending on likes and don’ts, is that the old scandal which has come to light you know off since independence.you land grabbers and killers your hunting grounds are now empty looking for new pastures. if you are a man take the bull by the hones do your research well in Zimbabwe you can get any certificate without attending lessons.is that the only crime she has committed? good for nothing except to add confusion, grace is just one fish among the others in the sea, do it right or don’t just bark
