ZANU PF women’s league has ‘endorsed’ the anti-corruption crusade spearheaded by the National Youth League putting to rest speculation that the youth wing had overstepped its mandate by ‘naming and shaming ‘ alleged corrupt party bigwigs and top government officials.
The Women’s league is a powerful organ in the party and their endorsement of the anti-corruption crusade gives credence to claims that the youth league is not without back up in this pursuit for a corruption free society.
The Women’s League on Wednesday waxed lyrical over President Mnangagwa’s decision to constitute a Commission of Inquiry to look at the corruption allegations raised by the youth league against party bigwigs.
“The Women’s league further supports the position taken by the First Secretary of the Party Cde ED Mnangagwa to constitute a Commission to investigate the said allegations supported by the Politburo.
“We call upon individuals, corporates and private sector to endear the principles of good corporate governance, accountability and transparency at all time,” wrote the Women’s league’s secretary Mabel Chinomona in a statement.
The support comes at the right time when the youth league has intensified its anti-corruption crusade and is at daggers drawn with multiple farm owners and land barons within the party’s top echelons.
This comes hot on the heels of their ‘name and shame’ announcement by deputy secretary for youth affairs Lewis Matutu which implicated alleged corrupt bigwigs including the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe governor John Mangudya, Zanu PF secretary for administration Obert Mpofu , Tourism minister Prisca Mupfumira, parliamentarian Tino Machakaire among others.
Zanu PF Youth League secretary for administration Tendai Chirau said they were targeting land barons and multiple farm owners guided by their internal investigations and the ongoing land audit.
The announcement will be made at a yet to be advised date this month.
