HARARE, Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa has directed all Cabinet Ministers, deputy ministers, senior civil servants and heads of State-owned enterprises (SOEs) and parastatals to submit written declarations of their assets by the end of next month.

This was being done in line with the thrust of the new government to create a responsible, transparent and accountable civil service, says the Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet, Dr Misheck Sibanda, who added in a statement issued here Tuesday that the directive also affected board members of SOEs and parastatals, chairpersons and members of constitutional commissions and chief executive officers of local authorities.

The declaration of assets document should contain details of immovable property owned or those in which he/she has an interest. "Any item of movable property exceeding 100,000 US dollars in value, owned or leased by the individual concerned or in which he or she has any other interest and any business in which the individual has an interest in and or in which he or she plays a part in running. The nature of the interest in the property or business concerned should be clearly stated, he said.

The President expects the full and urgent co-operation of all affected office bearers in responding to this directive.

President Mnangagwa has pledged to bring a number of changes to government, including promoting tenets of good corporate governance in the public sector and curbing corruption which had become rampant under the previous administration.
