The Law Society of Zimbabwe (LSZ) has questioned the genuineness of Prosecutor-General Kumbirai Hodzi’s allegations that legal practitioners dominate the list of corrupt officials.
In a statement, LSZ questioned why the Prosecutor-General is not prosecuting the lawyers if he has incriminating evidence as he alleges. Said LSZ:
Is the PG not convicting these lawyers before investigations are concluded? It is disconcerting that Hodzi having been in this office for six months in an acting capacity never saw the wisdom in bringing such serious allegations to the attention of the Law Society Council. One would wonder why these lawyers who are alleged to be corrupt are not being prosecuted, especially when the PG seemingly suggests that he is armed with incriminating evidence against these lawyers.
