Zanu-PF has a culture of corruption and violence -  Trevor Ncube

Emmerson Mnangagwa is set to be sworn in as interim president in Zimbabwe tomorrow, and while many are hopeful at the new direction the country is headed, there is still much to be cautious about.

This is according to Trevor Ncube, publisher at Alpha Media. He says he is excited about the opportunity for Zimbabwe to push the rest button after Mugabe resigned, but there are concerns that Mnangagwa has worked closely with the now former president and Zanu-PF for years.

It gives us the opportunity as a country to co-create the kind of Zimbabwe that we want, the kind of Zimbabwe that is different to what we experienced over the last 37 years.

We want to be generous this particular moment, and say while the man that has worked with Robert Mugabe for the last 37 years, Mnangagwa, might over the past two weeks while in exile have changed his mind.

While Ncube says they are excited and hopeful, one must not forget that Zanu-PF is a party that was rife with systematic corruption. He adds that just because Mugabe is gone, does not mean the party has changed.

One of Mnangagwa's biggest challenges is going to be distancing himself from that culture, says Ncube.

It is important to realise that Zanu-PF is a system, Zanu-PF is a culture. Getting rid of one man does not mean that we've gotten rid of the culture and system on Zanu-PF. We need to be clear on that.

Trevor Ncube, publisher at Alpha Media

What is that culture? It is a culture of corruption, the culture of violence, the culture of intimation, the culture of stealing elections, the culture of of repression and oppression.
