Moyo who seem to have been on a campaign trail at Mpesi business centre in Mberengwa West yesterday also said fighting corruption was the card the president would play as he seeks a second term in office in 2023:
Many measures have been put in place to fight corruption and the people are now free to talk about it. Officials are being arrested and before that was taboo. Now we’re talking about it, it means it’s being solved.
