On Saturday leaked letter from the health minister Obadiah Moyo to Zanu-PF Commissar Victor Matemadanda showed that a state company had been used or intended to be used for Zanu-PF’s political campaign.
The letter showed evidence of what could be the corrupt allocation of medicines by NatPharm based on a request by Zanu-PF to help it woo voters ahead of the Lupane East by-election.
We post below some reactions from social media:
As part of its campaign in Lupane East parliamentary by-election, Zanu PF developed a plan to gather villagers at clinics where the party would donate medicines. Unbeknown to the villagers is that the medicines were taken from the state drugs company, NatPharm. Minister complicit – Zimlive
Come clean. The question you must ask is where is # or even better where is the loquacious @ to deal with this corruption, going by Mnangagwa’s anti-corruption rhetoric? This is far worse than than what Samuel Undenge was jailed for, over Fruitful Communication! – Jonathan Moyo
Aside from this being unconstitutional & a crime (necessitating police attention) is @ going to investigate this breach of the Electoral law? ZANUPF are using medications paid for with tax payers’ money to support their campaign. Not surprised but the brazenness is shocking – David Coltart
There is nothing new here. The only surprising thing is that they say they are a new Dispensation… This is what they have been doing under Mugabe nothing has changed. Medical supplies bought by tax payers/donated now used to advance Zanupf agenda. Cry my beloved country! – Nacha
When we tell you that we are in this mess bcoz of Corruption & not anything else, some still deny it. As I promised, we will continue giving you incontrovertible evidence until it is too much to deny our correct narrative. ZACC Chair @, there is evidence of corruption! – Hopewell Chin’ono
