'Govt Officials' Lies Have Destroyed Public Confidence'

Commentators have urged government officials to be honest when making public announcements as repeated lies have destroyed confidence in the system.

A case in point is the Minister of Energy and Power Development’s declaration in February that the country had enough fuel to cover 2 years.

However, only last week, the government was informing citizens that US$50 million dollars have been released towards payment of fuel.

Social media activists, Team Pachedu tweeted:

In February, Minister Gumbo said:

“I was invited by @edmnangagwa to a meeting where there was Dr Mangudya and I was shown payments made to procure fuel that would cover the next 24 months.”

In May, they are now paying again another US$50 million?


Constitutional law expert and Kent University lecturer Alex Magaisa had this to say:

In other countries, a minister who makes a false promise would do the honourable thing when the truth is revealed. Mangundya refused to go despite his 2016 bond note undertakings. He was rewarded with a term renewal. Mthuli will just play by the same rule book. Havana ganda ava.
