Pun­ish all forms of cor­rup­tion

Sunday News (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page -

WE have read of the ar­rest of high pro­file fig­ures in re­cent months on charges of cor­rup­tion and abuse of of­fice, among other things.

The next thing we hear is the grant­ing of bail to those peo­ple.

Once bail is granted, it be­comes rou­tine court ap­pear­ances with­out due fi­nal­i­sa­tion to these cases.

I think it’s high time we hear of con­vic­tions and jail terms.

The Head of State, HE ED Mnan­gagwa has pub­licly de­nounced cor­rup­tion and has promised to leave no stone un­turned in that en­deav­our.

The Chief Jus­tice Luke Mal­aba has also added his voice in this fight.

This is the kind of lead­er­ship we want. Fi­nally, let us unite against this can­cer that is anti-devel­op­ment.

Cor­rup­tion is can­cer­ous. It de­stroys our so­ci­ety, hence the need to col­lec­tively fight it.

In cor­rup­tion cases, both the giver and the re­ceiver are li­able to pros­e­cu­tion.

Let’s em­brace this new dis­pen­sa­tion. Zim­babwe has turned a cor­ner and it must not be pulled back by cor­rup­tion. Taisirevei Ma­hoza, Hwange.

Min­ing Ex­plo­ration and Devel­op­ment
