Official Corruption Exposed In Currency Dealing

The Zimbabwean Parliamentarian who we reported as being reluctant to ask the Reserve Bank Governor to name and shame the “cash barons” who are sabotaging the economy is now reported by Reuters to be on the run.

RBZ Governor Gideon Gono said Parliamentarians were shying away from their responsibility and had something to hide, after he threatened to name and shame government officials who he claimed were sabotaging the economy.

But the chairman of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Budget and Finance, Zanu PF MP, David Butau, reportedly said he was not in a hurry to ask Gono to come and name the saboteurs – meaning the Parliament was not in a hurry to find out who was sabotaging the economy.

Morgan Tsvangirai's Christmas message

morganAs we record the eighth Christmas after the formation of the Movement for Democratic Change in 1999, I wish to recognise our collective determination and resolve to transform the political face of our motherland against heavy odds.

We are pioneers among Africans: the first nation to confront an African dictator through democratic means, and the first post-colonial formation arising from the social movement to claim an extension of freedom and the realisation of the noble ideals of the liberation struggle. Unlike the situation in the rest of Africa, we remained steadfast in our refrain to resort to armed violence in order to be heard.
