via Bulawayo24 NEWS | ‘Arrest corrupt government officials’ 03 April 2014
Zanu PF activist and wife to Mhondoro Ngezi legislator Mike Gava, Tendai Wenyika-Gava has called for the arrest of top government officials engaging in corrupt activities to line their pockets.
Wenyika-Gava, a former Midlands State University students representative council president said it was sad that corrupt officials enjoyed luxurious lives when ordinary Zimbabweans were suffering.
“I have personally grown sick and tired of all this corruption happening around us, whilst the majority of us remain unemployed and languish in what seems like perpetual poverty.
“It’s time we stop playing the blame game and also take responsibility for our mistakes as a people. Things are getting worse, little difficult, we are barely managing and yet others are getting fat every day, dipping their hands into the national till without shame,” Wenyika-Gava said.
She raised concern about the failure by authorities to decisively deal with the issue of corruption.
“Let’s move beyond the cheap rhetoric of naming and shaming without action. Prisons were built for thieves. I for one have lost patience. I owe it to my children and their children to protect what rightfully belongs to us.
“Enough is enough. Thieves must be sent to jail, there are no scared cows, no one should be above the law.”
Last year, Wenyika-Gava married Zanu-PF youth leader Mike Gava at a colourful wedding in Harare that was attended by the then ANC youth leader and now South African Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema.
