For­ward with anti-graft drive

The Sunday Mail (Zimbabwe) - - COMMENT -

EDI­TOR — It seems like the wheels of jus­tice have been turn­ing in the right di­rec­tion these past few months.

It is good to see nu­mer­ous prom­i­nent fig­ures who we used to think were un­touch­able be­ing put be­hind bars.

This is def­i­nitely a step in the right di­rec­tion as it sends a loud mes­sage that the law will even­tu­ally catch up with who­ever de­cides to line their pock­ets through crim­i­nal ac­tiv­i­ties.

Back in the day, it was rare to hear that some­one like the RBZ di­rec­tor for the Fi­nan­cial In­tel­li­gence Unit was be­ing charged with any of­fence.

But un­der the New Dis­pen­sa­tion, which has set its sights on cleans­ing the cul­ture of cor­rup­tion, it has be­come com­mon.

The ju­di­cial sys­tem should now do its job and en­sure these crim­i­nals are locked be­hind bars.
