New Parly Building: We Feel Proud As Zimbabweans - ED

New Parly Building: We Feel Proud As Zimbabweans - ED

President Emmerson Mnangagwa said that he asked Chinese leader, President Xi Jinping to fund the construction of the Parliament building during a visit to China in April 2018.

Briefing journalists on Wednesday, Mnangagwa said the six-storey circular Parliament building located in Mt Hampden just outside Harare was built free of charge by China. He said:

When the Second Republic came in November 2017, I was then invited by His Excellency Xi Jinping, to visit the People’s Republic of China in April 2018, so when I met him, after the formal discussions we had a private discussion with His Excellency and he asked what I would want China to do for the Second Republic. I requested for this Parliament and he agreed and gave (it to us) as a grant.

This is the most magnificent Parliament I know personally that I have visited, it’s a heritage for our country and the design shows the history of our country, you will realise there is the Zimbabwe bird, conical tower replicated here. We feel very proud as Zimbabweans.

Mnangagwa and Xi also discussed two other projects during their private meeting, that is, the Hwange Unit 7 and 8 and Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport which were both granted on a concessionary loan.

Local Government and Public Works Minister July Moyo said his ministry has started the process of requesting China through the Foreign Affairs and International Trade Ministry and the Chinese Embassy to agree on a date for the official opening of the new Parliament.

How much have we given away in order to get that donation. The Chinese are greedy. They wouldn't offer anything for free. Very exploitative and ruthless people 🇨🇳. That's why they're law unto themselves. You're victimising ma NGOs muchiti they fund politics yet the Chinese are doing the same. They even breach bilateral diplomacy by threatening citizens in the host country. Nonsense

The Powers-that-be have a way of supporting local talent. We have very capable architects, construction companies, interior designers in Zimbabwe, and yet we get the Vietnamese design and build Heroes Acre, Yogoslavs to build Sheraton Towers, Chinese for our National Sports Stadium and Parliament. Whenwillwe be proudtobe Zimbabweans?

Zimbos can not be trusted with such huge funds. You are well know for inflating the price quotes. It's good the funds owners do it as experts while you are employed as general hands, runners. How can you master massive project when you when you have failed to do your local roads? Your local companies got contracts to do urban and rural main roads but look how they performed?

Then you hear someone saying CCC is a puppet of the West. Clearly the puppet is one who allows another country to fund such an important building. Each time there is a crunch decision to be made the Chinese will remind you of wht they dd for you. A parliament building should be funded by our own resources. Its either you are a puppet of the East or the West
