The fight against corruption in Zimbabwe will soon jump to the next level as the country prepares for anti-corruption courts’ introduction.
In order to boost the high-priority initiative, the government has invited Ugandan Anti-Corruption Court judge Justice Lawrence Gidudu, who will hold a series of training to educate the judges, prosecutors, and police officers on some of the most difficult cases that occurred in Uganda.
“Uganda has scored so many successes in as far as fighting corruption is concerned, hence it was felt that we will benefit as a nation,” Judicial Service Commission (JSC) spokesperson Brian Nkiwane explained. “The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), members of the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) and members of the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) will all be trained.”
Corruption has been one of the main issues in Zimbabwe that for years prevented it from socio-economic growth. According to President Emmerson Mnangagwa, it remains “the enemy number one in the country.”
