Harare-Zimbabwe Prosecutor General, Kumbirai Hodzi has blamed cartels for the country’s economic woes saying they dominate every sector of the country’s economy.
Hodzi was speaking at the Political Actors Dialogue (POLAD) workshop on Capacity Building on Anti-Corruption in Bulawayo Monday and reiterated the same during radio programme.
The head of the National Prosecuting Authority said the cartels were choking the country’s economy and those involved had connections with people in high offices in government.
“What we have in Zimbabwe is the problem of cartels who affect every sector of the society. We have got sections in the judiciary, the Zimbabwe Republic Police, the National Prosecutors Authority and even from the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) who are controlled by cartels and manipulate investigations and this is pulling the country’s economy down,” said Hodzi.
His remarks come barely a few days after two Zanu PF youth leaders, Lewis Matutu and Godfrey Tsenengamu accused cartels of hijacking the country. They were later suspended from the party.
