Edwin Sibanda said: “Ideally we were supposed to isolate them at Elangeni Training Centre but the logistics involved with reopening that isolation centre are a bit cumbersome as it will also require more staff and resources hence we resorted to using Thorngrove which has the necessary staff and resources. However, all the cases are under control as they were isolated and later discharged for isolation at their homes because they were all asymptomatic,” External link

Mthuli Ncube said: “Consistent with growth projection of 5.5 percent, resources envelope is now projected at $800 billion up from Budget Savings Plan level of $533 billion in 2022. The increase is attributed to changes in inflation and exchange rate dynamics. This will be complemented by Special Drawing Rights liquidation worth about $40 billion and domestic borrowing of $64 billion. This will bring the total budget envelope to about ZWL$900 billion in 2022,” External link

Mthuli Ncube added: “No recourse to Central Bank overdraft facilities will underpin the 2022 National Budget. Government will continue to strengthen the Public Finance Management System in order to address risks to budget sustainability, especially the accumulation of domestic arrears and extra-budgetary expenditures through further rationalisation of the recurrent expenditures and redirecting of savings towards infrastructure development. We will ensure that such expenditures are explicitly budgeted for, quantified and approved through the Annual Estimates of Expenditure. Disbursements by Treasury will be strictly limited to available revenue and within the approved budget. There will be strengthening of the internal audit processes for Government,” External link

Constantino Chiwenga said: “Indeed, crisis and emergencies create a good unjust enrichment opportunity to those with a high propensity for corruption. Thus, even in the wake of an emergency, men and women in Government ministries, departments and agencies as well as suppliers in the private sector should commit and practice the highest standards of transparency, honesty and ethical behaviour in their dealings in public procurement,” “Responding to participants during a recent engagement I had in Dubai with the Zimbabwean Diaspora in the Persian Gulf region, I pointed that as a citizen, one was equally corrupt if when aware of corruption which had taken place, was unwilling or afraid to expose perpetrators by reporting the matter to the responsible authorities. Within the context of this conference, I would like to make it clear that if a public procurement official solicits or extorts a bribe from you, but you are unwilling or afraid to expose the official by reporting the crime, it means that you are not only equally to blame but also corrupt” External link

Mthuli Ncube said: “What we are implementing is a very pragmatic approach and we are doing very well. Let’s not allow a few people to destroy the auction (RBZ forex auction system) when everything else is doing well. Those doing it (black market) will be dealt with. Colleagues we cannot adopt the United States dollar alone as the official currency.You were there before and the queues, huge foreign currency deficits and then you have deflation as a country. That was because of the USD, it is not a good idea, that will be suicidal. What has happened is after we introduced the local currency industry is picking up. It’s about stabilising the currency,” External link

Mthuli Ncube said: “We are reforming the country, running the country under basically a dual currency regime. Basically we are using the Zimdollar and United States dollar, and of course other smaller currencies. We are using both currencies and you will see shifts one way or the other. We are trying to stabilise the Zimbabwean dollar and we have done well to ensure salaries are not eroded. The United States dollar is performing the role of the savings and investment currency, while the Zimbabwe dollar is performing more of the role of transaction currency, than an investment currency,” External link
