“Mnangagwa Has Over-promised And Under-delivered”

Writing in an op-ed, Nqaba Matshazi deputy editor of NewsDay argues that President Emmerson Mnangagwa has promised much and delivered very little since he came into power in November. Says Matshazi,

The tragedy is that Mnangagwa is seen to be overpromising and under delivering. Mnangagwa also set himself a 100-day target, a wholly American milestone meant to gauge a new President’s legislative agenda.

I was wary when the President almost promised manna in his first 100 days because there was no way he was going to achieve some if not most of his goals and he and his ministers fell far too short. The 100-days target has all been but forgotten and no one is mentioning it.

Had there been any achievement, then this could have been a good platform for Zanu PF to campaign on, but instead, they are campaigning like they are in the opposition, telling Zimbabweans what they will offer rather than what they achieved.

The less said about the cash situation the better. State media headlines have been telling us how the cash situation is set to improve and how much money has been imported, but everyone knows that the situation has only become worse.

Like his predecessor, Mnangagwa has fallen into the trap of hyping “mega deals”, but the pitfall is that if the ordinary Zimbabwean does not see an immediate improvement in their lives, they will certainly believe they are being taken for a ride.

  1. You are right if a person does not see that ED is bearing up under the strain of sanctions. YEARS BACK THE DIPLOMATIC COMMUNITY HAD COMMUNICATED TO SOLOMON MUJURU THAT THEY COULD WORK WITH ANYBODY ELSE IN ZANU BUT MUGABE HAD TO GO. AFTER MUGABE ED MUST HAVE ASSUMED THAT THEY WOULD ACCEPT AND LIFT SANCTIONS AND HONOUR THAT UNFORTUNATELY THE OPPOSITION CONVINCED THEM THAT ED WAS THE SAME AS MUGABE SO ITS A WAIT AND SEE AFTER ELECTIONS THATS OUR COUNTRY POSITIONS

  2. Personally zvangu nyaya yekuti the ordinary Zimbabwean arambe achitambura just BECAUSE one politician haasati apinda mu statehuose does not make sense to me because disregard of who comes in direct instant benefit will not come to me or MANY Zimbabwean people but by being availed space to work for ourselves in a sanctions free environment can we realise immediate benefit.
