Victor Matemadanda, the newly appointed Zanu-PF Secretary for the Commissariat has said that senior Government officials and party bigwigs who are implicated in corrupt activities should just resign.
Matemadanda was speaking in an interview today with the Herald. He said:
Leaders should not be involved in corrupt activities. Those implicated in corrupt activities be it a Politburo member or minister should clear their names before the courts before taking public office.
For those in influential positions should resign and clear their names.
They should not wait for the President to nail them in public. They should not wait for the President to force them to resign, they should do the honorary way. Let them clear their names to gain confidence from the people.
His remarks follow recent reports suggesting that ZANU PF bigwigs at the party headquarters were demanding huge bribes from investors who end up deciding not to invest. Last week, president Emmerson Mnangagwa also lamented the prevalence of corruption and bureaucracy which he said were chasing investors away.
