Audit all parastatals

EDITOR — It is now clear that all parastatals and ministries are in need of serious forensic audit in the wake of the Psmas, ZBC and Airzim finacial mismanagement shenanigans.

These are but small fish in huge corruption-laden pond.

This country is being milked dry by such corrupt practices yet our government remains unmoved.

It is not enough to just fire these shamelessly high-earning bigwigs as it will not deter would-be corrupt officials, their assets should be confiscated by the State and they should face prosecution.

Further, some people sit on more that 10 boards of business institutions, therefore there is need to investigate the performances of those institutions.

The corruption and obscene salaries are a result of the politicisation of these public entities. Management realised that they could get away with their corrupt activities if they chant ZANU PF hymns such as the sanctions mantra. For example Muchechetere claimed that his management skills at ZBC were hampered by sanctions, the MDC and the imperialist 'machinations'. They also donated handsomely to ZANU PF sponsored events such as the 21st February Movement and offered acres of media spaces for condolences and congratulations to ZANU PF cadres dead and alive to cover up their nefarious looting in the public entities. After all has been said and done management in public entities should NOT earn more than $5000. These are mere service providers and not producers. Envelope journalism is now common in Zimbabwe such that we are not surprised to see some journalists like Matthew Takaona and other bloggers exonerating fat cats such as Cashbert Dube and Happyson Muchechetere.
