No excuse for corruption – President
President Emmerson Mnangagwa has reiterated that government will not tolerate corruption, warning those engaging in graft that they will be prosecuted without fear or favour. Posting on his Twitter handle on Monday, President Mnangagwa added that there is no excuse for corruption.
“Let me be very clear. If you engage in or promote corruption, you will be arrested and prosecuted. There are no excuses for corruption. No one is above the law,” he said.
This comes as the Government has expressed concern with growing cases of name-dropping whereby some people claim to be connected to critical offices in order to evade arrests.
Government has established a Special Anti-Corruption Unit in the Office of the President and Cabinet as well as capacitated other graft fighting bodies such as the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission, National Prosecuting Authority and the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe’s Financial Intelligence Unit.
