  1. Who is not corrupt in Zimbabwe?? We were hoping Mnangagwa government will wipe out all the corrupt people in his government. Apparently, all the corrupt trash has been moved into the new dispensation. So, there is no difference between the old and new dispensation. That’s why the situation is getting worse in Zimbabwe.
