Corruption in govt institutions run deep: President

By Farai Matiashe

President Emmerson Mnangagwa said he has now realised that corruption is deep-rooted within the various institutions of the State.

In a wide-ranging interview with ZBC, which was broadcast on Independence Day eve on Wednesday, Mnangagwa said he had realised that fighting corruption was not a walk-in-the-park.

“To fight corruption, you need the police to investigate, but there are elements of corruption in the police. Once you get past the corruption in the police, the National Prosecution Authority (NPA) has to prosecute, but there are also elements of corruption in the NPA,” he said.

“Then the case must go to court and there are also elements that are corrupt in the Judiciary, so the fight is so wide and deep.”

Mnangagwa said the courts were currently handling a number of corruption cases, adding there were some individuals in the Judiciary and police, who were doing their best to nip the problem in the bud.

Meanwhile, Mnangagwa has called for government institutions and humanitarian aid agencies to continue providing support to Cyclone Idai-hit areas during the Easter holidays to avoid disruptions of services. ads Ads

“His Excellency, President Emmerson Mnangagwa has directed that all workers dealing, with Cyclone Idai-related works, which include construction, relief and rehabilitation must remain at work during Easter holidays and the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair period so that there is no continued and uninterrupted attention towards the affected areas and victims,” Local Government minister July Moyo said in a statement.

“This applies to ministers, permanent secretaries, officials and aid agencies co-operating with government.”

Moyo said Mnangagwa was appreciating all officials who were continuously working to ensure normalcy was restored in the affected areas.

  1. And who is the head of government?

  2. I am writing from Durban. A year and a half ago, my boyfriend left me for another woman. I became very hopeless, wretched and melancholic. I even contemplated suicide. I dated several men in order to try to forget about him, but still couldn’t stand the longing for my partner. I could not forget my ex. I tried doing very many things as a means to bring him back, but it was useless. I cast a love binding spell with one online spell caster, but it did not work. Later, some scam who claimed to be anything won my confidence. However, this time I was fooled again.

    Since I kept making consultations from one spell caster to another, I had run out of money. However, six months ago, I got a recommendation from a friend who had successfully had his spell cast from Love Spells Testimonial site. He told me to rush because the things he was talking about were real. I didn’t really hesitate much. I prayed to God and told him that if I were deceived again, I would never resort to these people or even trust any spell caster. I sent her the money she had requested for the spell to be cast. It was amazing that the very first call I received after 12 days was from my ex-boyfriend. He asked for forgiveness and another chance because he was sorry for what he had done. Now I feel like I am the happiest in the world because of what this spell caster did for me.
