Zanu PF provincial chairman Temba Mliswa has again attacked Information Minister Jonathan Moyo asking the question if he is serious about corruption “why is someone like George Charamba who was involved in the PSMAS board, still working under him?” 

The remarks were captured in a recorded phone conversation between political commentator Outspoken Goto Mato and Mliswa last week. Mato called Mliswa to commend him for his stance on corruption and asked how it can be tackled.

“Its important to stand strong and expose it but you don’t want to make it like an activist, you are dealing with corruption, let everyone account, even ministers must account like I have said,” the Hurungwe West MP said.

“Even Professor Moyo, if its true about corruption, then why is someone like George Charamba who was involved in the PSMAS board, still working under him?”

Charamba, President Robert Mugabe’s spokesman, raked in over $100 000 last year from the scandal-ridden Premier Service Medical Aid Society (PSMAS) despite claiming he was the least paid person on the board.

Charamba was a mega-earner, getting US$10 357,50 in January 2013, US$10 207,50 in February, US$8 107,50 in March, US$8 770 in April, US$8 895 in May, US$8 270 in June, US$8 895 in July, US$8 270 in August and September, US$12 190 in October, US$8 270 in November and US$8 895 in December.

Charamba who doubles up as presidential spokesman and Permanent Secretary in the Information Ministry was a key board member, including serving on the finance and budget committee that approved Psmas CEO Cuthbert Dube’s obscene US$500 000 in monthly salaries, benefits and allowances.

Meanwhile Goto Mato asked Mliswa if President Mugabe was also not involved in corruption? Mliswa’s answer was “No I think he has also spoken against it, so it’s for us to act.”

    OK let our brave Temba Mliswa ask the President to justify why Mdudla Obert Mpofu got so stinking rich when the country was going down. ITS THE POLITICAL SET UP AS A WHOLE. THE ENTIRE SYSTEM OF WHICH TEMBA IS NOT ONLY A PART BUT ALSO ONE OF THE LEADERS. That is why he avoids confirming that the President can be linked to corruption. Every Zanupf leader shouts “no corruption no corruption” but in their daily actions they are digging deep into it. I like Moyo for criticizing the arrest of journalists and while Mliswa has said some good things, he seems to be suffering from the Julius Malema syndrome of just attacking because he can open his mouth.

    I think in our case its better to set the rotten house on fire even though there is a clean mice inside. The whole house is corrupt and one may be lucky to find a clean mice in it. Why not set the whole on fire? Who is clean in ZPF?
