President Robert Mugabe has appealed to skilled Zimbabweans in the diaspora to come back home in order to help rebuild and develop the country. Mugabe even went as far as saying that he was willing to make a plan to ensure that skilled workers were remunerated adequately if they were worried about wages. Speaking at a Zanu PF Youth Interface Rally at Somhlolo Stadium in Lupane, on Friday, Mugabe said:
We have a lot of minerals in Zimbabwe, every province has minerals, gold is in every province and we hope our mines ministry will work hard so that we can explore underneath the ground and our youth can be employed in the process.
We would want blacks to be employers so mining engineers can team up and form their own companies. We have so many skilled Zimbabweans living outside the country and they should come back home and use their skills here so that we help each other to develop our nation.
If their problem is on low wages, we can work a plan and ensure that they are properly remunerated for their skills.
