Minister ‘Saddened’ By Alarming Levels Of Corruption In Transport Sector

Transport and Infrastructural Development Minister Joel Biggie Matiza has castigated the “alarming level” of corruption perpetrated by officials in State entities in the transport sector.

Speaking during the official opening of a strategic planning workshop organised by his ministry in Mutare on Wednesday, Matiza chided officials over corruption and incompetence. He said:

It is sad to note the alarming level of corruption in the transport sector. Your presence here is not only to discuss business processes and to forget about ethical dilemmas affecting government operations. I hope you can attach as much importance as I do to the fight against corruption.

… we take umbrage and deep exception to corruption and incompetence accusations levelled against some of our departments and parastatals, but that will not change the public’s perception.

On the government’s austerity measures, Matiza said tangible progress has been made following the introduction of fiscal and financial reforms which he claims have stabilised the economy.

He added that the country has now entered the second phase whose thrust is increased productivity accompanied by the radical socio-economic transformation.

  1. Hey biggie Joel, you are part of the problem in this country, why don’t you man up, stop being corrupt by stealing the forex, and then become part of the solution. It is not your area to talk about the fiscal problems in this country, because you remain totally ignorant of actually what goes on here.
