Norton Member of Parliament Temba Mliswa has urged President Emmerson Mnangagwa to emulate Former President Robert Mugabe is dealing with corrupt individuals surrounding him.

Mliswa was commenting on the ongoing NSSA audit that is being conducted.

"Let's hope those handling the NSSA audit report don't try implicate  Patrick Zhuwao as he was only a Minister for a short time and didn't make any transactions. The housing developments were during (Prisca) Mupfumira's tenure and she was removed by Mugabe because of corruption." Said Mliswa. "Those in ZANUPF Politiburo  at that time can attest to that as Mugabe was direct. People like Kasukuwere witnessed it. If we say Mugabe was lenient with corruption what are such people still doing in today's government? Mnangagwa must hear the truth about some of those around him with a tainted background."

Mliswa exonerated Zhuwawo and Mugabe from any corrupt activities.

"PatrickZhuwao like his uncle wasn't corrupt, he was an academic. Mugabe's failure became more apparent when he chose a partner not as rigid in courting diverse options."

Turning to the challenges affecting the country, Mliswa urged government to restore the hope that Zimbabweans had in November 2017.

"Hebrews 13:6-8 On 17-11-17 People marched in unity to remove RGM, knowing Mnangagwa would be coming in. We marched in hope of a unifier and a new Zimbabwean team in Cabinet which would deliver. That unity of purpose was phenomenal and  is what will get us where we need to be.

"People aren't too fussed about who leads when they're able to prosper in their own spheres of influence. When they don't have to fret about the basics, when their quality of life is improved. Problems abound when only a handful prosper at the expense of the majority. There was hope, there was hope and there was hope...... let's revive that hope."
