Political scientist Vusi Nyamazana has launched Mnangagwa-Meter, a website which tracks President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s performance based on the promises that he makes. The aim of the website is to hold politicians accountable to the electorate for what they promise to do.
Speaking on the initiative, Nyamazana said,
The website is a non-partisan resource that is useful to all people, regardless of political viewpoint, who are interested in monitoring the accomplishments of President Mnangagwa in an unfiltered manner.
How can anyone keep faith in politics whilst there is such confusing pile of conflicting pile of conflicting views on the government’s progress?
If we want a strong and responsive democracy in Zimbabwe, we need to develop a culture of “Monitorial Citizenship”, where we monitor these promises and challenge the government where it falls short. Civic engagement is too important to be something we do only at elections.
