Zimbabwes Biggest Daily Online Newspaper – Acting President Admits Rot In Zanu PF Zimbabwe Daily News

Acting President Joice Mujuru has admitted for the first time that corruption is deeply entrenched in her Zanu PF party, blasting her colleagues in government for propping up their lifestyles with stinking riches while the majority Zimbabweans are battling to eke out a living. Mujuru, who is currently holding fort at Munhumutapa Building while President Mugabe is on leave, blasted her Zanu PF colleagues for being driven by corruption, greed and individualism in pursuit of self-centred business.

Joyce Mujuru, 49, a ruthless supporter of the government’s purge of white farmers, has been the unexpected beneficiary of a Zanu-PF reshuffle dubbed “the night of the long knives” by the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation. Mujuru has the added advantage of a powerful husband — Solomon Mujuru, the former head of the army. The Mujurus live on a 3,500-acre requisitioned farm, Alamein, 45 miles south of Harare, which has been found by the Supreme Court in Zimbabwe to have been illegally requisitioned from the farm owner.
