Jonathan Moyo corruption: Mukanya weighs in
By Silence Charumbira
Exiled Chimurernga musician Thomas Tafirenyika Mapfumo has weighed in on the Professor Jonathan Moyo corruption case that has rocked the ruling party Zanu PF in the past one week.
Moyo, the Minister of Higher Education is being investigated for corruption involving hundreds of thousands that he, his deputy Dr Godfrey Gandawa and other senior officials allegedly misappropriated.
Although the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission had reportedly intended to arrest him; President Robert Mugabe and Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko have allegedly blocked the arrest.
Mapfumo told Showbiz from his Oregon, United States of America base that it was time for the young people in Zimbabwe to take over from Zanu PF which has failed to stem out corruption.
He said the corruption in the country was too much that people everywhere were now talking.
“People are now talking. There is too much corruption. We have to see that things change for the better,” he said.
He said it was also the mandate of the young people to continue agitating for change because their future is being ruined.
“The young have the power to change things. Your future is being ruined. I was with Evan Mawarire, the Tajamuka people…these are the same young people that are speaking out,” he said.
Mukanya as he is also referred to said young leaders like American President barrack Obama should now take over the running of the country as they have the energy to deal with issues.
“Don’t stop agitating until things change. The government must be led by the young. There are young people like Obama here that should be running the government just like in other progressive countries. Just like here in America; Obama is a young man,” he said.
