Minister Zhuwao says Zim’s economy is not bad, says the dying economy belongs to Rhodesia

President Robert Mugabe’s nephew and Minister of Youth, Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment, Patrick Zhuwao has claimed that Zimbabwe’s economy is not bad as it is just starting.  According to the Minister, the economy which is dying is the Rhodesian one which was inherited at independence.

Addressing journalists after meeting entrepreneurs and youth officers in Harare on Wednesday Zhuwao said:

The economy is not bad, it’s actually at a nascent stage. One of the things we have to do is recognise that we now have a country called Zimbabwe and a nation called Zimbabwe.

What was previously regarded as the economy is actually the Rhodesian economy that was built on the trunk of the nation state of Rhodesia which has since seized to exist.

Zhuwao’s remarks have come a few weeks after President Mugabe claimed that Zimbabwe was the second most developed country in Africa, behind South Africa.
