‘Corrupt US$15Billionaire Mugabe, Must Resign Over Zimbabwe Civil Service Rot’-MDC

“Zimbabweans have just been subjected to a grand theft by their own government and it is time to put a stop to it. Firstly, the deterioration of corporate governance and accountability in the civil service has played a huge contributing factor to this country’s economic crisis, considering that the civil service wage bill was said to be gobbling over 80 percent of the national purse annually, while in actual fact half of this percentage was being stolen,” he said. “Secondly, it has become increasingly apparent that there are a number of political considerations motivating the corruption and rot in the public service, all at the expense of the ordinary and suffering Zimbabweans.”He said it is worrying that as Zimbabwe is confronted with an unprecedented level of corruption, rot and decay, the government continues to loot public funds to fund a Zanu PF patronage system which continues to threaten the stability and prosperity of our nation.”And if Zanu PF  cadres continue to do as they wish with public resources and funding, without being held accountable for their actions, then the reality is that tomorrow will be far worse than today. Of late we have been waking up to stunning revelations of corruption involving billions of dollars and surprisingly there is no will to act on this vice by President Mugabe and his government. We still await to see action being taken over the 15 billion diamond money that disappeared,” he said.”The mandate of the national constitution has been abandoned in practice and substituted with the abuse of the state machinery through nepotism and corruption. If as Zimbabweans we continue to let our guard down, ZANU PF will continue to take this country on a downward slope.” By Stephen Jakes
