Zimbabweans have reacted differently to the dismissal of Tourism Minister, Priscah Mupfumira, over corruption allegations. Some hailed the president for the job well done whilst some say actual work remains to be done. We present below reactions posted on social media platforms.
Gogo Mupfumira was EATING LARGE and it was well-known in many circles for the past 2 years
He has done the right thing, something which he should have done from day one. There should never be a place for any person in cabinet who has been implicated in the rot that Prisca Mupfumira finds herself in. In fact she should have resigned, that is what decent people do!
Mnangagwa fires Mupfumira. No idea why she had to wait to be pushed
In October 2017, four weeks BEFORE the coup, Mupfumira WAS FIRED by President Mugabe for exactly the same NSSA allegations over missing tens of MILLIONS of US dollars under COMMAND AGRICULTURE. Mnangagwa & Chinamasa defended her & Mnangagwa got her back to Cabinet AFTER the coup!
The firing of Priscah Mupfumira over allegations of corruption is a welcome development but we will be happier to see other ministers, army generals also being arrested over corruption. At the moment we are not sure if it’s just Mupfumira who fell out of favour
It can be a calculated move by ED; very soon # can be out ; it could be a discussion done behind the scene to disguise the naive !!
ZBC reports Priscah Mupfumira has been fired as tourism minister but as it stands she remains eZANUPF politiburo member and stil enjoys the perks. Pulling wool over our eyes. #
Is it newsworthy that Mupfumira is fired , a person who stole from the poor. Why does opposition supporters rush with this drama in ZanuPF gvnt ?
Unfortunately the Mupfumira’s arrest didn’t gather the much anticipated vibe as Zanu anticipated. Only Obert Mpofu’s arrest will get the nation talking
Patience hama. Watch the space. Names BIGGER than MUPFUMIRA will walk. I have my ear close to the ground
Mupfumira was fired by Mugabe because of NSSA corruption and it was highly publicised by Grace but ED ( who is serious in fight against corruption by the way ) reappointed her
Minister fired over corruption- I would love to see @ go further deal with the Permsec who allowed the root in the ministry, also to Gvt officials who watched Chitiga bag USD$21 000 in salaries every month.
Aizve, this could be a first! Let us see how it ends. Who may be the next?
