MDC Manicaland legislator Trevor Saruwaka has claimed that President Emmerson Mnangagwa stole his party’s ideas and incorporated them in the National Budget presented by Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa last week.
He said that his party is willing to advise Mnangagwa’s administration with more ideas to improve the lives of Zimbabweans. Said Saruwaka:
Our desire as MDC is for Zimbabweans to live well. We have never once refused to advice government to improve the welfare of Zimbabweans. Mnangagwa found it fit to start stealing ideas coming from MDC so that it helps the nation and is something quite commendable and positive. What the nation should realise is that the positive they will see are MDC ideas but those things that will be amiss will be Zanu PF. But when MDC gets custody of government after the next elections things will be even much better. Let them try to copy as much as possible to improve the economy.
He also praised Zanu PF’s approach in coming up with the National Budget and said:
What is exciting is that listening to minister (Patrick) Chinamasa’s Budget you could not hear any mention of sanctions or ZimAsset. This is a clear admission by Zanu PF that they were lost and taking the country up a garden path but policies that were always been promoted by MDC were always good so we are happy if they succeed.
