BREAKING: ZACC chairman, commissioners resign
Dr Whabira

Herald Reporter
The chairman of the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission Dr Job Whabira and all the commissioners have resigned with immediate effect.

In a statement today, Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet Dr Misheck Sibanda said President Mnangagwa had accepted their resignations. The commissioners have since gone on leave pending the finalisation of their terminal benefits.

“His Excellency the President extends his gratitude to Dr Whabira and the Commissioners for the sacrifice and efforts they rendered to the country in working towards the elimination of the scourge of corruption which threatens to tear apart the very fabric and ethos of our society,” read the statement.

President Mnangagwa is now expected to appoint a new chairman and request for nominees from the Parliamentary Committee on Standing Rules and Orders for appointment as commissioners.

    And not a single word or explanation as to why they have taken this drastic step of resigning.

    But this silence shouts louder than words.

    It seems certain that Dr Job Whabira and all his commissioners knew that they were in a no-win situation. No matter what they said or did would help in curbing the rampant corruption in ZANU PF’s government.

    And then we have all this face-saving garbage from ED about their hard work and sacrifice blah blah blah.

    And then next week we will have a new anti-corruption Commission and they will be just as ineffectual and powerless as this one leaving.

    And so, life goes on in our Zimbabwe. And all the time we are getting poorer and more desperate for change.

    The black race is going nowhere. Just as the animals on the lower food chain, we are doomed.

    I’ve lost hope on my race.
