Zanu PF prays for divine help

HARARE - Zanu PF has appealed for divine intervention to deal with endemic corruption, with a Cabinet minister telling church leaders on Friday that he is ashamed of the riches amassed by some of his comrades.

Addressing an Apostolic Christian Council of Zimbabwe Bishops Conference for peace and voter orientation at the party headquarters in Harare on Friday, Information minister and Zanu PF political commissar Webster Shamu said the indigenisation policy would not help the ordinary population because of greed.

Shamu said there was need for members of the apostolic faith sect, more known as Vapositori to pray for his party to exorcise the corruption demon so that they too can benefit from the policy of indigenisation.

“The reason why ordinary people are not benefitting from our indigenisation policy is because of corruption among us.

“There is rampant corruption within our leadership and had it not been for the greed, we could easily give each one of you $1 million considering the profits realised by companies such as Zimplats."

“We can only be able to do that if you pray for us, please pray for us. I was ashamed when I visited some of my colleagues in the party only to discover that they have enriched themselves to the extent that they own several mansions, many of which they never use until they die,” he said. - Mugove Tafirenyika
