‘I will cross the bridge when I get there’ ÔÇô Guma Moyo

Even though a dark cloud hangs over him, the Member of Parliament for Tati East constituency, Simon Guma Moyo, is still optimistic that he will retain the constituency with flying colours in the coming general election.

The former minister of Finance and Development Planning says allegations of corruption levelled against him will not affect his political campaign.

In a brief interview with The Sunday Standard, Guma Moyo said his campaign is going well and he will again scoop his constituency from his opponents.

When asked what he intended to do about the corruption accusations, he said, “I will cross the bridge when I get there.”

Moyo was dropped from cabinet early last December after the Directorate of Public Prosecution informed the President that they would be dragging Moyo to court on corruption allegations, which had been investigated by the Directorate of Corruption and Economic Crime.
