News:Mnangagwa Calls For A Stop To Corruption. Says Zimbabwe Presents Better Opportunities Now Than Before 1980
During a speech read on his behalf by Harare Metropolitan Provincial Affairs Minister Miriam Chikukwa on Thursday evening during a ceremony to award local authorities, tertiary institutions and State entities that excelled in various disciplines of financial management and accountability.
In the speech Mnangwagwa said,
The country has to tackle systematic corruption through illicit financial flows by promoting the concept of good corporate governance. Sophisticated crimes such as organised financial crimes and corruption require sufficient capacities and a strong legislative framework in order to effectively deal with it,
He also said that Zimbabwe presents more opportunities now than it did before 1980,
I want to reiterate that, despite the prevailing economic situation, Zimbabwe presents better opportunities for all citizens today than it did before the attainment of independence in 1980. This is a direct result of Government initiatives and our public sector policies that are people-oriented. It is therefore imperative that we cherish our achievements and increase our desire for improvements in all spheres of our operations at all times.
