More Doubts Cast on Mnangagwa's Promise to Fight Corruption

Zimbabwe's President Emmerson Mnangagwa has controversially reinstated Sydney Gata as executive chairman of Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority and its board. This comes as investigations into Gata's alleged corrupt dealings are still underway.  This move is raising questions on the president's commitment to fighting corruption. On taking office, Mnangagwa vowed to tackle corruption but his administration has been accused of shielding the real culprits, while using less powerful people as scapegoats.
