Foreign Affairs and International Trade Minister Retired Lieutenant-General Sibusiso Moyo defended President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s 100 day concept following criticism that the Zanu-PF administration which came into power in November following a military intervention had failed to meet any of its targets.
Speaking at the Zimbabwe Trade and Investment Conference Expo, which ran under the theme “Strengthen business relations between Zimbabwe and the rest of the world” in Harare yesterday, Moyo said the 100 day concept was a management tool meant to ensure ministers are accountable for their performances. He also said the next 100 days will be starting soon. Said Moyo:
I am aware that earlier on, during the deliberations, there has been an aspect about the 100-days having come to an end. In fact, to elucidate that particular point, according to His Excellency, the 100 days is a management tool to ensure that ministers are accountable to their performances and that ministers can always account for what they have achieved and for what they have not achieved. I am not being off the mark if, in fact, tomorrow or on Monday the next 100 days is going to be starting, which is going to be giving us a further cycle which ensures that the time period within which the ease of doing business, which he has clearly expressed, is going to be articulated and implemented.
