ACTING President Joice Mujuru’s stance over corruption has outraged Zimbabweans from different sectors with former Studio 263 actress-cum-model Tinopona Katsande being the latest celebrity to vent her anger.
Mujuru torched a political storm over her utterances in Chinhoyi recently with mainly political players saying she had to resign as her statements were tantamount to supporting corruption and demonstrated her leadership deficiencies.
Katsande, known as Tin Tin in showbiz circles, blasted Mujuru for her sentiments saying she was troubled by the utterances.
She wrote on her Facebook page: “I am troubled with VP Mujuru’s stance on Salarygate.”
“I love my VP and my party (Zanu PF), but on this one I am struggling to see where she is coming from or indeed where she is going with this.”
The popular actress, who last year courted controversy after her sex tape was leaked in the media, said it was time for Zanu PF to smell the coffee as the sole ruling party was out of the inclusive government hence the need for transparency, responsibility and accountability.
“As Zimbabweans we are literally breathing fire over this. We are hurt and livid at what we law-abiding citizens see as a straight-up atrocity upon our workforce.”
Mujuru brewed a storm over the weekend following her statement where she blamed factionalism and detractors for exposing the rot in parastatals with several people calling for her resignation for trying to protect the corrupt in society.
She was quoted as saying the ongoing exposing of corruption within some parastatals had some negative impact on the Zanu PF government and its programmes.
“I have since learnt sometimes it is necessary to destroy in order to rebuild. Yes, perhaps the ‘exposed’ may not be prosecuted but they must be ‘exposed’ and where possible removed.
“Zimbabwe is visibly hurt and livid. It’s distracting us from our spirit of ‘onward march’ so I implore the media to keep at it.”
