Bulawayo Residents Petition Incoming Councillors To Declare Assets To Prevent Corruption

The Bulawayo Progressive Residents’ Association (BPRA) has petitioned the new Bulawayo City Councillors to declare all their assets in an effort to minimize corruption. The previous council was accused of high levels of corruption. Part of the petition from written by BPRA acting co-ordinator Emmanuel Ndlovu reads,

Once such a declaration is made, registers of interest should then be kept and these should be made publicly accessible. The registers of interest should then be updated annually as and when changes in your assets occur and these shall be publicly accessible.

BPRA believes such a step shall be a game-changer in the fight against corruption and that you can be Bulawayo’s number one anti-corruption champion… BPRA is willing to second its expertise to help the council develop and maintain such a register.

MDC Alliance’s Bulawayo provincial chairperson, Gift Banda, said that the initiative was a welcome one although he said the party would need to advise on how to proceed.
