Addressing supporters at a rally that was held at Mkoba Stadium, Gweru on Sunday, MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa criticised President Mnangagwa’s “Zimbabwe is open for business” mantra saying Zimbabwe must be open for business to locals first.
Chamisa questioned the logic behind opening business for foreigners when Mthuli Ncube and Strive Masiyiwa and Mutumwa Mawere outside Zimbabwe. He said the current administration does not open business for everyone. Said Chamisa:
Emmerson Mnangagwa has been saying Zimbabwe is open for business. We do not open business for everyone.
