Mnangagwa pledges to end corruption by 2023 - rubbish, staying to rig 2023 elections!

"Many measures have been put in place to fight corruption and the people are now free to talk about it. Officials are being arrested and before that was taboo. Now we're talking about it, it means it's being solved," said Foreign Affairs and International Trade Minister Dr Sibusiso Moyo.

Minister Moyo please do not insult our intelligence! Mugabe admitted the country was being "swindled out of US$15 billion in diamonds alone!" He never arrested one diamond swindler or/and recover one dollar of the swindled fortune. Mnangagwa has been in power for nearly three years, he too has not arrest one swindler and/or recover one dollar.

We all know that the Army, the Police, CIO, Mugabe, Mnangagwa and a few other institutions and individuals have/had diamond mining concessions. We all know of "Churu chaMujuru" (Mujuru's anthill!)  and the US$ 32 million loot amass by former Police Commissioner, Augustine Chihuri was from the Police's diamond mining activities.

You, Minister Moyo and VP Chiwenga, as senior Army Officers you received your share of the Army's diamond mining activities which you have used to build your mansions and to buy other properties and business interests. Mugabe and Mnangagwa too have amassed their fortunes from the wholesale looting still taking place to this day.

Yes, Mnangagwa has arrested a few individuals for corruption but these are the small fish mostly. The real big fish responsible for the looting of the big fortunes will never be arrested. You Minister Moyo, VP Chiwenga and Mnangagwa himself are the godfathers of corruption.

No godfather of corruption will dare arrest another godfather. No matter how angry a cobra gets, it will never ever bite another cobra because it knows before the other's dying wish will be to die with its fangs buried in opponent!

The people know to stamp out the gross mismanagement, the rampant corruption and the lawlessness which earned Zimbabwe the pariah state status, destroyed the economy and driven the investors and donors away; we must end the curse of rigged elections and bad governance. And to do that we must first implement the democratic reforms necessary to stop Zanu PF rigging the elections.

"This is President Mnangagwa's election pledge card, he pledged to fulfil the fight against corruption by 2023. He asked to be measured with regards to fighting corruption by the people ahead of 2023 elections, it's his pledge card and he is serious about fighting this scourge that is eroding the economic fibre," continued Dr Moyo.

Mnangagwa rigged the July 2018 elections; ZEC failed to produce something as basic as a verified voters' roll. Unless we implement the democratic reforms to stop Zanu PF rigging, the party will rig the 2023 elections, guaranteed.

Since we cannot trust Zanu PF to implement the reforms we must exert all pressure to force Zanu PF to step down so we can appoint an interim administration to implement the reforms.

This Zanu PF regime have no democratic mandate to govern. It is illegitimate and is holding the nation hostage! Enough is bloody enough!
