Independent Norton legislator, Temba Mliswa said this week that he also has evidence on Justice Mayor Wadyajena’s corruption.
He was speaking in parliament on Thursday where he said Wadyajena is supposed to step down from his chairmanship of the Parliamentary Committee on Agriculture.
So, how do people hold Parliament today, how do people hold the Government of the day and how do people hold the ruling party when they are protecting a chairperson?
To me, it is this Parliament which is aiding corruption because I brought this issue up and it was not answered,” Mliswa said adding that Wadyajena has been implicated in many scandals before
I also have evidence on him (Wadyajena) with SFG giving him money and he never brought that SFG to that Parliamentary Committee yet they were an agriculture concern.
At this point in time, with immediate effect, he must step down. It is the best practice even if the rule is not there.
He has no respect amongst his colleagues anymore and unfortunately, the blue eyed boy for vakuru in this parliament has fallen.
I am sure he will fall with many others too because these transactions are quite serious. I have evidence and I will be providing the evidence to ZACC in terms of saying as Parliament, we cannot push for corruption and expose Ministers but we are in the forefront of it.
Deputy speaker Tsitsi Gezi said she could not comment as the matter was now before the courts.
Wadyajena was arrested along with Cottco executives earlier this week by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC), and faces US $5m corruption charges. He was however released a day later on ZWL $200 000 bail (equivalent to about US $250).
