Zimbabwe's Economy Now Out Of Depression - ED

Zimbabwe's Economy Now Out Of Depression - ED

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said the country’s economy is now out of depression and on recovery as evidenced by the size of the 2022 Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF), which he said is the largest ever.

A depression is a severe and prolonged downturn in economic activity that lasts three or more years or which leads to a decline in real gross domestic product (GDP) of at least 10%.

Speaking after touring various stands at ZITF on Friday morning, Mnangagwa claimed that 75 per cent of the products on supermarket shelves are produced locally. He said:

I have also been advised by the Minister of Industry and Commerce, Dr Nzenza that Zimbabwe is now producing more than 75 per cent of products that are found on our shelves in the supermarkets.

Most of these people are our own people and they come here in order to exhibit their products and do the networking among themselves which is critically important.

It shows that Zimbabwe is now out of depression, we are on the trajectory of recovery of our economy.

The President also said his Government’s policy of engagement and re-engagement is now bearing fruit with countries such as the United Kingdom exhibiting at the 62nd ZITF after 20 years of not participating.

During his tour, Mnangagwa visited every embassy that was exhibiting including the UK embassy, the embassy of Belarus, the Kenyan embassy and the embassy of Japan.

i wonder which country this gentleman is living in. He certainly isn't referring to Zimbabwe for sure.

All I can say is he started off with New Dispensation, which turned out to be New Desperation, then New Deception. Now he is into Self Deception.

He must be high on Bang. Mbanje dzavakaita legalise dzaakuvapengesa.

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.
