Mugabe appoints anti-corruption team

2011-08-19 09:21

Johannesburg - Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has appointed a nine-member Anti-Corruption Commission to stem out corruption in the country, according to a report in Zimbabwe's Herald Online on Friday.

Denford Chirindo, who previously worked in the ministries of defence and justice and legal affairs, would chair the commission. He also worked with the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe as a senior logistics administrator from February 2006 to January this year.

Chirindo's deputy would be policy consultant Teresa Mugadza. She previously worked at the Women in Politics Support Network.

The other members are Goodwill Shana, Zivanai Rusike, Anna Chitsike, Emmanuel Chimwanda, Shepherd Gwasira, Elita Sakupwanya and Lakayana Duve.

In a statement this week, Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet Misheck Sibanda said the appointments were done in consultation with Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai and deputy Prime Minister Arthur Mutambara in line with the constitution of Zimbabwe and provisions of the Global Political Agreement.

"All the members appointed to the commission are persons of integrity chosen for their knowledge of and experience in administration or the prosecution or investigation of crime and/or for their suitability for appointment," Sibanda said.

The commission would be sworn-in by Mugabe at a date to be advised.

      Come on, the real fun is going to start when Chippy Schaik is going to be appointed as chief advisor!

  • Jonathan - 2011-08-19 09:26

    Denford is probably already on sick leave.....

  • AJ - 2011-08-19 09:29

    Obviously excluding any cases where Mugabe and friends are involved. Keep your eyes peeled for some arbitrary policeman getting caught for a ten dollar bribe as proof of the success of the unit, whilst the hundreds of millions continue to march right out the back door.

      umlaut - 2011-08-19 15:30

      No I am sure he is going to frame Morgan and some white farmers.

  • Almaki - 2011-08-19 09:30

    More excellent journalism: " stem out corruption.."

  • daaivark - 2011-08-19 09:31

    HA HA HA HA HA. OK, I read this as Bob wanting to make sure he gets a share of whatever who is stealing.

  • jevoixtout - 2011-08-19 09:31

    This head line is better suited for a slapstick comedy movie title.

    So he is leaving then????

  • salome.bezuidenhout - 2011-08-19 09:39

    I think the first question would be what the anti corruption criteria are. I think the poor whites are going to come second in this one again. Criteria one: If you are an owner of anything and you are white, it's corruption. Criteria two: If you are white and do not hand over all money to government, it's corruption. Criteria three: if you are white and you receive medical treatment, you are corrupt. :-((

  • Tommy - 2011-08-19 09:42

    This has to be some F%cking joke?

  • marilynjv - 2011-08-19 09:42

    Hahahaha, is this a joke? Surely it is...

      umlaut - 2011-08-19 15:33

      Maybe it is a spelling mistake--it must read "corruption team" that will make more sense.

  • Badballie - 2011-08-19 09:48

    Sorry Bob, has your cut dropped over the last year?

  • danielzainlegrange - 2011-08-19 09:55

    That must be the joke of the month

  • Michelle - 2011-08-19 09:56

    That's making the wolf shepherd!!!!

  • Dickson - 2011-08-19 09:58

    Chosen for their experience in administration of crime ... LMAO

  • Slingervel - 2011-08-19 10:01

    Mugabe is obviously getting his ducks in a row to also ask for a R2.5b loan from Zuma.

      Mark - 2011-08-19 10:16

      That little? I think he will ask for R10bn and zoom zoom will probably tell to have R15bn.

  • Mark - 2011-08-19 10:17

    This is the finniest thing i have heard all week.

  • Clinton - 2011-08-19 10:24

    Is this not too late or just frigging early for an Aprils Fool Joke?

  • NV - 2011-08-19 10:24

    This is a joke, right? Rob Mugabe......before he robs you.

  • Andrew - 2011-08-19 10:25

    The problem is that they have stolen all the white money, farms and business so that little barrel is now empty so now they will need to steal from each other. Hence the corruptions, yip Bob must be drawing the short straws now. Mental Asylum costs are rising dramatically.

  • Sean - 2011-08-19 10:26

    LMAO...Bob hates competition

  • KrayZee - 2011-08-19 10:29

    This is like Hitler appointing an Anti-Nazi squad to root out Fascism. What happens when Mugabe or one of his cronies becomes a suspect? Will they go the same way as the Scorpions here in SA?

  • 1love - 2011-08-19 10:49

    Hahahahahahahahaha kwakwkakwakwkakwa Really the most corrupt person appoints an anti-corruption team, Guess they will have to start with him.

  • De la Rey - 2011-08-19 10:49

    Bob, Bob, Bob..... I see the 1st of April is a bit late this year. What a joke. Bob, you crack me up!!

  • zackie - 2011-08-19 10:50

  • sipholess - 2011-08-19 10:52

  • Dirk - 2011-08-19 10:53

    Nothing left to steal ...AND NOW he wants to stamp out corruption ...WTF .... who needs clowns for a laugh we have bob juju and JZ plus plenty more in the wings..... Gotta love Africa.....

      em_oh! - 2011-08-21 17:58

  • AndV - 2011-08-19 10:54

    This aap is senile. No hope for Africa.

  • De la Rey - 2011-08-19 10:59

    I see News24 DELETE my comments just because they don't like my name - if you don't know history, don't advertise it. De la Rey was not a racist, you plonker !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ollie - 2011-08-19 11:04

  • jen - 2011-08-19 11:18

    This must be an early April's fool joke. No really, who is he fooling?

  • JustinD - 2011-08-19 11:35

    I wonder if his useless wife....Dis-Grace will be investigated for all the stealing she has done. That oxygen thief will be strung up once her old fart of a husband has died or even better gets arrested and send to the Hague. Dis-Grace will "Dis-appear" the sooner this all happens the better.

  • beicime - 2011-08-19 14:05

    What a stupid decision! Now he is in real trouble.

  • bernard.swanepoel - 2011-08-19 14:06

    That team should definitely not have a difficult task. Just take out ZANU PF government and that would be the end of 99% of corruption in ZIM.

  • Daemos1 - 2011-08-19 14:47

    Is it April 1st?

  • slg - 2011-08-19 17:01

    This is so shockingly bad. Africa and Africans must rid the continent of leaders like this. It's a complete disgrace. How can we sleep even one more night while this absurdity is going on. It's completely ridiculous. Rise up Zimbabweans, rise up. Mugabe hardly has a defense force, only his thugs. Being confronted by big groups, they don't stand a chance. But make them big.

  • Angelo - 2011-08-19 20:30

    yes yes yes what next bob/??

  • numbatoo - 2011-08-20 08:15

    Surely this headline is from HAYIBO? !!

  • umhlopo - 2011-08-20 19:49

  • gwiz - 2011-08-21 21:25

    This has got to be the biggest joke of the year.....Are they going to begine with Bob?
