Zimbabwe’s President Emmerson Mnangagwa has launched the National Anti-Corruption Strategy for 2020-2024 in a bid to fight corruption which hampers economic development, progress and stability in the country.
Mnangagwa launched the National Anti-Corruption Strategy for 2020-2024 during the commemoration of Africa Anti-Corruption Day on Saturday.
This comes after Mnangagwa fired Minister of Health Obadiah Moyo following the us$60 million DRAX scandal.
Mnangagwa said the strategy is a roadmap in the fight against corruption in Zimbabwe, thus the implementation of the strategy must be robust and responsive to changes and new realities that may emerge, and must build a tradition of integrity, honest and hard work.
He said the fight against corruption remains a serious and complex challenge with networks of corruption becoming more and more sophisticated hence his government has prioritised the fight against corruption, declaring zero tolerance to the parasite.
