Opposition MDC’s Secretary for Education, advocate, Fadzayi Mahere has questioned the rationale behind president Mnangagwa’s purported plans to set up a Corruption Commission. Mahere believes that the Auditor General, Mrs Mildred Chiri already did a splendid job in exposing corruption in the government.
The advocate believes that the government should now be contemplating or instituting arrests. Mahere’s twitter post read:
@edmnangagwa, With respect, why set up a commission of inquiry to address corruption yet the nation has a most competent Auditor-General who has brought to light deep-seated corruption, backed by evidence? Surely, we should be speaking of arrests & prosecution now?
Her remarks come after president Mnangagwa promised the ZANU PF youth league that he would set up a commission of enquiry to investigate individuals the league implicated in underhand dealings.
His pledge came after ZANU PF politburo had offered to investigate the matter. The youth league, however, rejected the offer saying that there would be a conflict of interest. Resultantly, Mnangagwa said an independent commission comprising individuals who are not linked to the party will be set.
The list contained names of people the ZANU PF youth league was accusing of choking president Mnangagwa’s efforts to revive the economy. The list which contained business and political bigwigs suggested that most of them were engaging in illegal foreign currency trading and corruption.
