The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Nick Mangwana has said that he is convinced that President Emmerson Mnangagwa is committed to fighting corruption in the country.
He made the remarks when the president’s critics have said that his anti-corruption campaign is only rhetoric which lacks tangible action to back it.
Posting on Twitter this Saturday, Mangwana said:
The biggest mistake I can ever make as a Public Officer, is to doubt President Mnangagwa’s commitment to fighting graft. He has made it clear to us that we are not immune from prosecution and nobody will be insulated from having their day in court. #ZeroTolerance2Corruption.
Mangwana speaks amid reports that Health Minister, Dr Obadiah Moyo was arrested by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) for alleged abuse of COVID-19 relief funds was on Friday released at the instigation of the president.
Moreover, there are allegations which suggest that the President’s son, Collins Mnangagwa is involved in the corruption saga that saw the country losing millions of United States dollars.
A number of high profile figures have been arrested for corruption since Mnangagwa’s ascension to power in 2017 and also most of them have since been freed.
