FULL TEXT: ZANU PF Says Moyo’s Dismissal Serves As Warning To Party Officials

ZANU PF STATEMENT ON THE REMOVAL OF DR. OBADIAH MOY0 FROM THE OFFICE OF MINISTER OF HEALTH AND CHILD CARE

ZANU PF stands solidly behind the decision by His Excellency, President E. D Mnangagwa to remove Dr Obadiah Moyo from the post of Minister of Health and Child Care. ZANU PF applauds the President for his boldness in walking the talk in the fight against corruption. The decision by His Excellency, the President should serve as stern warning to all those cadres whom the Party has deployed to Central Government, Local Authorities and Parastatals that in the discharge of their functions they should, like Caesar’s wife, be beyond suspicion. They should at all times know that any whiff of corruption will cost them dearly because the President declared that there will be no sacred cows when it comes to fighting corruption.

ZANU PF takes this opportunity to bring to the attention of those Law Enforcement Agencies involved in the Administration of Criminal Justice its concerns and those of the population. Expectations are that Law Enforcement Agencies should carry out thorough investigations to establish a prima facie case before arrests are effected as to At otherwise leads to the practice commonly referred to as “Catch and Release” a situation which will put the administration of criminal justice into disrepute.

Equally of concern to the population is the prolonged and protracted nature of trials. This also leads to reputational damage to the administration of criminal justice. ZANU PF is, therefore, calling upon Law Enforcement Agencies involved in the administration of justice namely, the Police, the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC), the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Judiciary to expedite the prosecution and finalisation of criminal charges, in particular, cases pertaining to corruption in line with the pronouncements made by the President on the Africa Anti-Corruption Day.

Furthermore, the Party reiterates its position, that unnecessary political activities such as demonstrations will not be tolerated in line with the current LockDown regulations as directed by the President and Commander in Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, Cde ED Mnangagwa to contain #Covid19Zim.

Those who are organising such demonstrations will have themselves to blame if they continue to defy authorities. What happened on 01 August 2018 and 14-16 January 2019 will never be allowed to repeat again. The merchants of violence who are known to be working with our detractors must heed our call for them to respect the law if they want the law to respect them as well.
