Minister of Justice, Emmerson Mnangagwa and Zanu PF secretary for administration, Ignatius Chombo are expected to give Government and the Zanu PF party’s position on the indigenisation law at the one day Affirmative Action Group (AAG) annual general conference respectively.
The lobby group has threatened to take the Zanu PF Government to task over inconsistencies over the Indigenisation Act with AAG President Chamu Chiwanza saying:
This is an annual conference, but as you would know, we had challenges with the interpretation of the indigenisation policy at some point, the President had to intervene, but we still need some direction on the matter, hence, we invited the VP representing government and a Zanu PF representative. We want to take the government to task because we feel there are a lot of inconsistencies that must be cleared.
The conference will be held at Zimbali Gardens in Greendale and is expected to draw delegates from the country’s 10 provinces. Chiwanza said ministers, among them Youth, Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment Patrick Zhuwao; Information Communication Technology, Postal and Courier Services Supa Mandiwanzira; and Tourism and Hospitality Industry Dr Walter Mzembi, were also expected to address the one-day conference.
