Addressing close to 1,000 supporters at Zaire Business Centre in Hwedza, Mr. Tsvangirai said President Mugabe is a corrupt leader, especially as he has failed to rein in some senior ministers that he also accused of engaging in nefarious deals.

Mr. Tsvangirai also accused Local Government Minister Ignatius Chombo and his counterpart Indigenization Minister Saviour Kasukuwere of engaging in corrupt activities.

In light of this, the prime minister urged Zimbabweans to vote leaders who shun corruption and seek to promote democracy in the country.
Mr. Tsvangirai, who is hopeful of winning the July 31 elections, said his administration will ensure that the country's economy is revived through creating jobs for the people.

For his part, President Mugabe, who rallied his supporters in Norton on Wednesday, said only the success of the indigenization program will ensure that Zimbabweans have jobs which will in turn revive the country's economy.
