Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said offering kickbacks and favouritism must be eliminated in all our business deals both in Government and the private sector.

He said corruption is at the centre of price distortions and needs to be dealt with if the country is to realise effective economic development

"The prevalence of bribe-taking, offering kickbacks and favouritism must be eliminated in all our business deals both in Government and the private sector as it is costing us a lot in terms of overpriced goods and services," said Mnangagwa.

"If we, as a nation, do not address issues of country risk both from a socio-political aspect at a macro level, investors as we know them are risk averse and if we are to attract responsible capital then we should reduce the risk associated with the way we do business."
