Freeman Razemba Crime Reporter—
Zimbabwe People First leader Dr Joice Mujuru has skeletons in her cupboard among them diamond smuggling and must not pretend to be clean, Zanu-PF political commissar Cde Saviour Kasukuwere has said.Cde Kasukuwere warned Dr Mujuru to stop boasting that she will not be arrested as she has cases of abuse of office and corruption allegations to answer for. He said that was the reason Dr Mujuru and members of her ZimPF party were ousted from the ruling Zanu-PF party.

Cde Kasukuwere, who is also the Minister of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing, said this while addressing people operating businesses at Glen View Area 8 Home Industries in Harare yesterday.

“Mujuru knows that she committed the offences. You (Dr Mujuru) know that you will be arrested for committing the offences. Mujuru and some of her senior members were dismissed for corruption and they would steal during day time.

“For example, they are aware that in Masvingo all the money that was channelled for dam construction disappeared during their tenure in office. zinwa also collapsed because of them and where are the irrigation schemes in Dande?” he said.

This comes in the wake of statements made by Dr Mujuru recently that the real reason she was sacked from Zanu-PF was because she had spoken out against corruption.

Cde Kasukuwere said: “Musadenhe zvirere. Kana uri mbavha better utaure hako zvimwe. We are aware of the diamonds that were taken to Kenya and by the way, in whose name were these diamonds taken to Kenya?

“That party (ZimPF) also has diesel n’angas who lied about the Chinhoyi diesel issue. My question is where on earth would you see or obtain diesel from a mountain? he asked.”

Cde Kasukuwere was accompanied by Minister of State for Harare Provincial Affairs Miriam Chikukwa, Small to Medium Enterprises Development Minister Sithembiso Nyoni and Harare provincial administrator Mr Alfred Tome, among other senior party and Government officials.

He first held a closed door meeting with officials at Glenview Home Industry Complex and later toured the complex. Cde Kasukuwere said plans were underway to ensure that the complex was improved to create a better environment for business. This comes after he was briefed that there were no toilets and electricity at the complex, among various other challenges.

Cde Kasukuwere warned some councillors not to abuse their offices by involving themselves in corrupt activities. “Let’s shun corruption. We don’t want any councillors who move like a peacock and steal money from people to enrich themselves. If we catch you, you will have yourself to blame,” Cde Kasukuwere said.

Minister Chikukwa took a swipe at people erecting illegal structures in the city which she said were mushrooming without proper documents. She said people should follow the normal procedures whenever they want to acquire land and that they should not be duped by land barons.

Minister Nyoni said she would continue taking new steps and measures to change the conditions of SMEs countrywide.

    There are only two simple questions to be asked here. If all Kasukuwere’s information is accurate, then why have Mujuru and her accomplices not been arrested and indicted? What sort of ridiculous nonsense is it that a minister can publicly announce and advertise persons known crimes to the entire nation, and no further action is taken one way or the other?

    The puerile immaturity of Zimbabwe’s politicians is incredible and explains, without anything further, why this country is in such serious trouble. This is kiddies’ cartoons stuff while, for many people, there is real life to be dealt with.

    Kasukuwere, how on earth could someone lose $15 bullion dollars and nothing happens? Mugabe must be ousted then for stealing three times more than the country’s budget.

    The problem with some of these so called ministers is that they are ignorant.They don’t know how their actions will affect the nation on the long term.All they do is grudge politics just to make sure they protect their interest and those whom they serve.They are prepared to maime or kill to their dictators masters in power till they die in office.I feel sorry for Kasukuwere and others who go around terrorising opposition leaders and their supporters. Opposition does mean enermy but it’s views and ideologies which are different.

    The sad thing is that although the looters throw rocks at each other, nothing will ultimately happen to them and nothing will ever be recovered. Such is the way in Africa, which is so tragic for future generations as the forefathers have been totally corrupt. The suffering will continue until our leaders are held responsible for their actions.
