Go deeper Auditor-General, probe and do forensic audit of the Office of President and Cabinet

Allow me to start by congratulating you Auditor-General Mildred Chari for such a job well done. After reading your audit report I was shocked to see how public officials bled Zimbabwe dry through corruption and kleptocracy. Madam, thank you for exposing that Zimbabwe was ruined by corruption not sanctions nor the jecha rhetoric. It is now clear that those in power are ruining everything for us through corruption and maladministration.

I hope justice will prevail but history has proved it that expecting a ZANU PF-led government to deal with corruption is like sending a mosquito to cure malaria. Let me not pour water on people's euphoria and the hot debate generated by your audit report but let's wait and see if anyone will go to jail after this. I don't think so, maybe a few G40s will be the unlucky ones to be used as scapegoats while bigger thieves who are loyal to the Igwe will get away with it.

Once again congratulations on your great work Amai Chari. But can I ask you to go deeper mhamha, can you do an audit of the Office of the President and Cabinet dating from November 17, 2017 to date. For interest sake I would like to know kuti mari dzenyika dzakafambiswa zvakachena here mu 'new dispensation' iyi? (I would like to know how public funds were being used by the Office of the President in this so called new dispensation). Madam without pointing a finger at anyone my instincts tells me that the President's office is the most corrupt one on our motherland. Think about all the private jets which were hired for the Igwe, expenses of the so called Office of the First Lady, I don't think things were being properly done.

Kindly do a forensic audit if you have the powers to do so. I am not accusing the presidium of any wrong doing but I suspect they are not clean and are equally corrupt. Why would bigger thieves continue to jail the smaller ones? For interest sake, I always wonder how President Mnangagwa got so rich on a civil servants payslip? Coming from the liberation struggle havana kumwe kwavakashanda so mari yese yavanayo vakaiwana sei? Did he declare his assets as he promised us when he got into office in 2017?? Maybe I missed it but I never heard about it again. If we are serious about putting an end to corruption let's deal with the bigger thieves first!

Keep up the great work Amai Chari,I stay in Kwekwe if you happen to pass through our small mining town let's have a coffee on my bill. Bravo!
