Commenting on the Zanu-PF’s preparations for elections this year, a Herald opinion article said that Mnangagwa has all but ditched the Indigenisation message. While the party’s manifesto for the elections is yet to be launched, it is clear from several addresses by President Mnangagwa that the message is now about attracting investment, said the comment.
It is worth noting that President Mnangagwa’s recent addresses have strayed from long-time message of indigenisation. In Davos, he repeated what he said during his inauguration speech that trade and international cooperation will be centrepiece of administration priorities.
After years of slow growth and lagging behind, it is vital that the country catches up with regional and global peers. This new position is born out of the understanding that people’s standards of living are low at the moment because of policies that hindered foreign capital to come in.
