Audio: Mujuru blasts media over corruption reports

This is the audio recording of the meeting in which the Acting President Joice Mujuru castigated the exposure of corrupt activities in parastatals and related companies in the media, saying this might be the work of detractors bent on destroying Government and stall its programmes. 

Mujuru, who was addressing the Zanu PF Mashonaland West provincial women’s conference in Chinhoyi on Saturday, said the graft cases should not be discussed in the media. She said the corruption cases were not the business of newspapers, saying the way the cases were being exposed raised eyebrows.

Mujuru accused people of wasting their time on useless issues and accused some Zanu-PF members of fighting from within to destroy Government programmes.

Mujuru however said corruption in the corporate and public sectors had no place in the country.

“What we read in the newspapers about what is happening at PSMAS and other public enterprises is disturbing and should not be allowed,’ she said.
