In a statement, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) called on voters to make President Robert Mugabe and Zanu PF pay for the promises they made during the 2013 elections.
Part of the statement reads:
Zanu PF made a sensational promise that they would create 2,2 million jobs if they get a five year term translating to 440 000 jobs a year. On average Zanu PF must have created 1, 760, 000 jobs as of now. Instead hundreds of thousands of workers lost their jobs with more than 6,000 companies closing between 2013 and 2015. Four years down the line the People’s Democratic Party is observing that Zanu PF continues to parcel out mining licenses with no plan at all to process minerals locally. The biggest beneficiaries of the minerals remain foreigners more than 60, 000 polishing jobs were created in India solely from the Marange Diamonds.
