There are investigations in progress from the lower courts to the highest courts. Judicial officers, prosecutors and lawyers are under investigation. But the most heinous corruption is emanating from legal practitioners. Legal practitioners are dominating the list.

  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. Thanks ED for trying anyway but you haven’t started.
