Zimbabwe: Corruption- the Cancer that has Destroyed Zimbabwe

The MDC fully subscribes to the calls by the United Nations Convention on Anti-Corruption (UNCAC) that all public office bearers should declare their assets to promote transparency, honesty and accountability of public finances.

Corruption is a cancerous infection that has far reaching consequences and mainly affects the ordinary man on the street. In the past decade, Zimbabweans have watched as their natural resources have been plundered. New minerals have emerged which had meant to bring back social and economic prosperity to the public but all these have proved to be non existent as political heavyweights from a particular political party grabbed and looted these resources for their own use.

Transparency International Zimbabwe (TIZ) today commemorated the international Anti-Corruption day at the Africa Unity Square in Harare.

Such commemorations come against a poignant and pitiful background in which Zanu PF officials have plundered the country’s natural resources for self-enriching projects in the name of indigenisation at the expense of the people of Zimbabwe.

The people deserve better. They have the right to know who has what and how they acquired these assets. As a party of excellence, the MDC has adopted the Real Change Code of Ethics and Values, which is a declaration of assets by the party leadership, as a gesture of achieving transparency and accountability.

In an MDC government, such corruption as exhibited by Zanu PF does not stand a chance. We uproot the cancer before it spreads, which is why we advocate that all corrupt elements in public offices be shown the exit door. The people of Zimbabwe deserve real change, where public office bearers conduct their duties in a manner that services the general public without exception.
