Transparency International Says Zimbabwe Failing to Tackle Corruption

Transparency International Zimbabwe (TIZ) has castigated Zimbabwe’s unity government for failing to stamp out corruption saying it has become one of the major stumbling blocks in moving the country out of the current socio-economic and political crisis.

TIZ executive director Mary-Jane Ncube said the ruling parties promised to weed out corruption when they signed the Global Political Agreement but have done nothing to show their commitment.

Ncube said the newly-formed Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission is failing to execute its duties properly because of lack resources and support from the inclusive government.

Ncube told Studio 7 the government is not prioritizing the fight against corruption.

Corruption has been cited in the Zimbabwe Tender Board, mining of diamonds in Marange, Manicaland Province, courts of law, police force, state-owned enterprises and several other sectors.
