Former ZBC radio Presenter Eric Knight has said corruption is the main vice that has gripped Zimbabwe which needs to be extricated.

"But seriously, in as much as the cash shortages problem is still biting painfully in Zimbabwe, there is no doubt that Corruption is the main cause. Depositors get bond coins from our Banks, not USDollars, and despite complaints, the RBZ never investigates the banks to find out what's going on. I have never heard a day where USDollars are hard to find on the black market, which means there's a smooth supply to the black market," he said.

"That is where sorting out should start. Corruption is as bad as cholera so it requires equally urgent addressing! It has devastating ripple effects, not just today but in the future of the country."

He said how will one encourage young people to go to school and be educated when Thieves are far richer than Graduates?
