    JT go hang. You are writing a bunch of nonsense. Some of these ministers have been in power since independence what have they done. Their look east policy is producing nothing. The Zhingaz are busy looting our diamonds, once they are finished you will see them no more. Toita hupenyu hwekutiza muzimbabwe isu vana vevhu

    • comment-avatar

      Quite right, how any moron can say those that have been robbing the country blind for the past 33 years are all of a sudden going to be honest because they have already stolen so much they don’t need more?? The reason not to give the young Turks in ZANU the job is beacause thye are pooor ans are going to steal too much??? Come on, get a life and an brain.
