Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra) has called on the media to expose corruption at all levels and all forms of illicit behaviour, as these vices reverse the gains of economic development.
Speaking to journalists at a media workshop in Bulawayo on Monday, Zimra acting commissioner-general Mr Happias Kuzvinzwa said the media had a mammoth yet imperative task to expose corruption by naming and shaming corrupt individuals.
Mr Kuzvinzwa said the media as the “mouthpiece of the society” and opinion leaders should be whistle-blowers of corruption at any level. “Let’s deal with corruption,” he said.
“We are saying to our media practitioners let us work together to deal with dishonesty, illicit behaviour negates the gains of our revolution.
