Magu's exploits

Recently Magu on Monday, December 11, 2017, said: “For those of us on this side; in the anti-corruption agencies of government, in the media, and civil society, the dagger is drawn and I believe I am speaking the mind of everyone on this side that we intend to neither retreat nor surrender in our noble intention to cure our country of the evils of corruption.

“For us as a country, the fight against corruption is a ‘do or die’ affair; we have to win the battle or die trying."

This latest attack came barely 48 hours after Magu said the anti-corruption will be a do-or-die affair.
