By ZbcReporter
Government has raised concern over unscrupulous individuals seeking to profiteer from funds set aside to benefit vulnerable groups who have lost income during the 21-day national lockdown.
The Minister of Women Affairs, Community, Small and Medium Enterprises Development, Dr Sithembiso Nyoni told ZBC NEWS that her office has received information about the corruopt individuals and will take the necessary measures to bring them to book.
“It has been brought to my attention that some people are going around making people pay for registering, that is illegal and it is unacceptable, so anyone who is made to pay for registering, please bring the names of those people and we will make sure they are brought to book. This program really benefits everyone because this COVID-19 has affected all our people alike regardless of race, gender, creed or political affiliation this programme is for you, it is for the vulnerable..” said Dr Nyoni.
