    Cover up of the other sides corruption. ED we need proper courts to deal with all people convicted not mere kangaroo courts. We can not have unethical people in any position. This is tantamount to gross dereliction of duty. Imagine an ordinary worker caught stealing today what happens to them. Either sacked or jailed.
    No we are tired of simply covering up for friends who stole from us. Stole our taxes . Let them feel the pain of having no job, having no food , losing a loved one because there was no money etc .
    All must realise their greed has hurt all Zimbabweans and justice must prevail.
