Mnangagwa Accuses Business Of Sabotage

Mnangagwa Accuses Business Of Sabotage

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has accused business of pretending to be supporting his Government while clandestinely sabotaging it.

Officially opening the 62nd Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF) in Bulawayo on Friday, 29 April, Mnangagwa said:

I call upon all economic sectors to exercise great discipline in their business dealings. We must act with greater cohesion and unity of purpose.

Business cannot purport to support Government by day and sabotage it by night, and thereafter, play victim.

It is imperative for us all to make strategic choices in the best interests of our country.

The overall economic competitiveness of our country remains the duty of all of us as Government, industry and consumers.

Collectively, through hard honest work and ethical business practices, let us advance the goal of achieving Vision 2030.

Mnangagwa also urged business to capitalise on opportunities presented by regional trading arrangements as well adopting eco-friendly production processes. He said:

I also urge industry and commerce to reap benefits from the opportunities, which exist under bilateral, regional and multilateral trading arrangements within Sadc, Comesa and the African Free Trade Area.

… I encourage our companies to deliberately adopt contemporary production processes that also protect the environment towards lowering our environmental footprint.

Our President ED MNANGAGWA, is now acting like a drowning man who clutches at a straw. He is now blaming everyone, from NGOs, sanctions, opposition and now businesses. At the Harmonised Elections in 2023, he will blame voters.

You are a poultry farmer. You inject your broiler with enhancement drugs. Your daughter is in the University and a major consumer of chicken and chips. Wisdom of a fool.

You are a parent. You buy exams for your child and lie to him he is the most intelligent kid in the world. He goes to university and does the wrong course. Either he drops out or he becomes a quack in that sector. He eventually gets a calamity. Wisdom of a fool.

You are a senior government official. You take a bribe. Contaminated sugar is allowed in the country. Your aging mother in the village gets cancer due to the contaminated sugar. Wisdom of a fool.

You are a senior government official. Government provides funds for building a dam to aid irrigation in your village. You loot all the money. Your own kinsmen back in the village die of hunger. Wisdom of a fool.

You are a senior public official. You get CDF funds to build schools. You loot it all and make kids drop out and become armed thugs. They hijack you, break into your house, steal from you and rape your daughter. Wisdom of a fool.

You are in charge of a hospital, you loot money that is meant for drugs. Your brother gets sick at night, he is rushed to hospital but there are no drugs. He dies and you are left struggling to educate his eight kids. Wisdom of a fool.

You are a police man working in Traffic. You take a USD100 bribe to let an overloaded Taxi pass. Your own villagemates and colleagues on leave die in a crash due to the taxi overload. Wisdom of a fool.

You are a rich man. You refuse to assist the poor. They become thieves. They break into your house, rob and kill you. Wisdom of a fool.

You are a voter. You are bribed with a t/shirt, USD500 and some simple promises in fundraising drives. You vote in a thug. Services delivery goes down. You complain for five years. Wisdom of a fool.

“Now look, this is exactly the kind of people that we elect. I wish this poem reaches every African in the world, I wish this can be written in notice boards of all places.
