‘Pasi nembavha’ Malema tells them in shona
Malema made the statement Thursday in the wake of concerted efforts on Twitter, led by Zimbabwean journalist Hopewell Chin’ono and Australia-based Zanu-PF supporter Reason Wafawarova who have seperately exposed massive looting of State resources under the guides of Covid-19 procurement.
Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Sello Malema applauded efforts by Zimbabweans on social media to expose and tackle corruption, saying there is nothing revolutionary about corruption and adding in Shona language that “Pasi me mbavha (down with thieves)!”
Wrote Malema on Twitter: “We applaud the fight against corruption and looting of public funds going on in Zimbabwe. It is cruel and evil for anyone regardless of who they are to steal money meant to help citizens fight Covid-19.
“There is nothing revolutionary or patriotic about thieving. Pasi nembavha!”
Government, under pressure from angry citizens this week dramatically cancelled all tenders related to the supply of Covid-19 medications and materials as it emerged that people close to the First Family were involved. Also, the prices were inflated while the companies that got the contracts to supply were apparently shelf companies with no known offices or trade references.
Meanwhile, in a related development, the Namibian Ministry of Finance spokesman Tonateni Shidhudhu said his ministry is assessing export activities relating to Jaji Investments, one of the firms involved in the murky Covid-19 scams in Zimbabwe.
Jaji is said to be registered in Namibia, but controlled by some named Zimbabwean citizen. The Namibian reports that Shidhudhu said his Ministry will release details when a full assessment has been done.
