The new ZANU PF Youth League leadership has said that the wing will remain resolute in fighting corruption “the proper way.”
This was revealed in a statement that was issued by the wing’s acting deputy secretary, Tendai Chirau who said that the Youth League was the Vanguard of the party. Chirau said:
The Youth League remains deeply and heartily perturbed about the calamitous effects of corruption on national economic growth and recovery.
We are genuinely aware of the existence of institutions which are constitutionally mandated to combat corruption such as Zacc (Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission), SACU (Special Anti-Corruption Unit) to aid the ZRP (Zimbabwe Republic Police), the NPA (National Prosecuting Authority) and the JSC (Judicial Service Commission).
He also called upon Zimbabweans to submit evidence on alleged corruption cases to the institutions above adding that most cases collapse due to lack of evidence. Chirau also called upon the institutions above to impartially and fearlessly execute their duties and responsibilities.
His remarks come a few days after ZANU PF politburo had suspended the ZANU PF Youth League Deputy Secretary, Lewis Matutu and Political Commissar, Godfrey Tsenengamu for allegedly violating party code of conduct after they named and shamed cartels bleeding the economy at a press conference.
