Zim day

 

The government has embraced Africa’s vision to ending corruption with significant strides having been made at country level in this endeavour.

Zimbabwe marked Africa Day for the first time under a new dispensation with government embracing the vision to tackle corruption head-on in order to steer growth on the continent.

The celebrations themed on the fight against corruption, come at a time when President Emmerson Mnangagwa recently also established a special anti-corruption unit housed in the Office of the President and Cabinet to improve efficiency in the fight against all forms of graft and to strengthen the effectiveness of national mechanisms for the prevention of corruption.

Officiating at a dinner hosted for the diplomatic community, particularly African ambassadors, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Lieutenant General Dr Sibusiso Moyo said Zimbabwe has already embraced the African Union’s dream of stamping out corruption so that Africa can one day write its own history, symbolised by glory and dignity as espoused in the 1960s by former Prime Minister of DRC, then Zaire, Dr Patrice Lumumba.

“For this to happen, it is imperative that we intensify our efforts to rid our continent of the cancer of corruption that is debilitating our economies. In this context, we applaud the African Union assembly for the choice of a very pertinent and relevant summit theme,” said Dr Moyo.

According to the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), US$148 billion is drained from the continent through various corrupt activities and the amount represents about 25 percent of Africa’s average gross domestic product.

Minister Moyo thanked the diplomatic community for standing by Zimbabwe during its peaceful transition last year, adding government is now more determined than ever to see the nation rise out of the ashes of the last two decades.

The African Continental Free Trade Area, the single African air transport market, Zimbabwe’s accession to the AU Peace and Security Council and forthcoming elections, all came under spotlight as Africa marks 55 years since the formation of the Organisation of African Unity in 1963.

An impeachment motion brought against Somalia president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo has been dropped after the required number of petitioners was not met.



The main crust of the petition was because of international deals Farmaajo had signed with neighbouring Ethiopia and Eritrea. The issue of unilateral appointments in the army and judiciary was also highlighted.
