ZANU PF abusing and politicizing civil servants in Zimbabwe

/Introduction

There is a growing concern around the politicisation and abuse of public (civil) servants to advance the political interests of the ruling Zimbabwe African National Union- Patriotic Front (ZANU PF) in Zimbabwe. This is supported by a growing body of irrefutable evidence that ZANU PF is among the leading abusers of civil servants as it seeks re-election ahead of general elections. This misuse and politicization yields a political advantage and benefit (re-election) to ZANU PF. This way, the practice is tantamount to the crime of corruption. Other rampant practices are many incidents of:

  • The abuse of public infrastructure, vehicles and stationery;
  • Manipulating state media;
  • Trading votes for access to public services; and
  • Extorting donations from the private sector, among others

This mini-report gives evidence of the abuse thereof. Furthermore, urgent remedial action should be taken against the practice.
