'Mnangagwa redefines corruption'

'Mnangagwa redefines corruption'
Published: 19 July 2019 (226 Views)
MDC Vice President Tendai Biti says President Emmerson Mnangagwa has redefined the meaning of corruption through the grand theft of USD$ 3 Billion which was stole through the opaque Command Agriculture program.

Said Biti," It is fair to say that the new regime is redefining corruption in Zimbabwe. In Dec 2017 US$1.5 billion was transferred directly from treasury to unknown actors of Command Agriculture. In 2018 US$1.4 billion was transferred there is no documentation or vouchers to support these transactions.

"The levels of brazenness, impunity and greed are shocking. This is truly a failed banana republic At this rate Zimbabwe does not need foreign aid. It simply needs to plug the holes and stop corruption. It needs a radical new leadership. It must resolve the political question and soon."

During a Public Finance portfolio Committee on Friday it appeared that treasury transferred three billion in less a year to Command agriculture from December 2017.

When the Permanent Secretary and Finance Secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture appeared in front of the committee they said they is no paper work relating to the funds.

Recently the Chairperson of the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission Justice Lois-Matanda Moyo said they are investigating the grand theft of public funds through the Command Agriculture program.
