President Emmerson Mnangagwa has urged his ministers to work hard for the transformation of the lives of the electorate saying that that is the only ticket to maintaining power.
He made the remarks at the anti-corruption event organised by the African Parliamentarians Network against Corruption (APNAC), in conjunction with Zacc and the Transparency International Zimbabwe to commemorate the Anti-Corruption Day symposium last Friday.
He claimed that the government’s failure to deliver public goods was probably as a result of ministers that are not doing their job. He added:
We are supposed to service our people. Who wants to be voted out? I want to make sure that we do things well so that we continue ruling.
He made the remarks in response to allegations by the Speaker of the Junior Parliament, Christopher Mutasa, that there is corruption in the country’s education sector.
Mnangagwa who is set to run for president in 2023 has hinted that he may extend his rule to beyond two terms stipulated by the constitution. The ruling ZANU PF has suggested that the constitution will be amended to accommodate him.
