Zanu-PF’s Secretary for Administration Obert Mpofu has said that his party will not take any blame for the for the excessive spending by the government. Instead, Mpofu said that his party had assigned people to fix the issues of over-expenditure as well as the rationalisation of the civil service. In an interview with The Standard, Mpofu said
We are a party in government and have assigned people to deal with issues of over-expenditure and rationalisation of the civil service and other areas that are gobbling up the national budget. That is being done by both the party and government, and there is no blame that we are going to take.
We are rectifying those areas and we are not being persuaded by anyone to do so. We are doing it on our own accord to ensure that there is transparency in government expenditure and monitoring it. We are looking at coming up with a stable currency, which will not confuse people.
Just three days ago there was chaos in the market and people did not know the proper United States dollar to bond rates, but all those areas are being rectified by government in order to come up with measures that will not burden the people of Zimbabwe, including those in rural areas.
…I do not know about Mugabe causing economic ruin. We [new dispensation] have been running government for over a year. I do not want to be talking a lot about the past because currently, we are correcting everything that was done wrong before to make things normal.
