President Mnangagwa Warns Businesses Supporting Govt By Day, Sabotage It By Night

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has warned businesses that “support the government by day and sabotage it by by night.”

He made the remarks while officially opening this year’s 62nd edition of the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF) in Bulawayo yesterday.

He said for Zimbabwe to attain Vision 2030, which is being pursued through the National Development Strategy 1 (NDS1), all hands must be on the deck. Said the President:

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

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

It is imperative for us all to make strategic choices in the best interest of our country. The overall economic competitiveness of our country remains the duty of all of us as Government, industry, commerce and consumers alike.

His remarks come when there has been a spate of price increases in the country attributed to the local currency’s continued loss of value against other currencies, especially the United States Dollar (USD).

The government blames the soaring inflation on “economic saboteurs.” Meanwhile, some analysts blame it on the government’s failure to put measures to sustain the local currency, the failure to supply foreign currency on the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) foreign currency auction conducted every Tuesday, and the failure to boost the confidence of the general public with regards to the Zimbabwe dollar.

The President also indicated that his Government, to cushion the consumer, is seized with drafting a cocktail of measures to bring economic stability and deal once and for all with economic saboteurs.

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.
