Speaking after being sworn in as Vice President before Chief Justice Luke Malaba at State House in Harare yesterday, Kembo Mohadi promised to create more jobs than in the last 8 months.
Mohadi said job creation is necessary to turn around the economy as it improves the Gross Domestic Product and expands the tax base. Said Mohadi:
To turn around the economy, one has got to create jobs. Eight months was too short a period to create more jobs but we believe that with the 60 months that are coming, we will be able to. Creation of employment has got two things we have to look at. It improves on the GDP and also expands the taxable base. When the taxable base is increased it means you are going to rake in more into the fiscus and thereby you will have enough resources to get into your Public Sector Investment Programmes (PSIPs). We are geared for that. Our priority is industrialisation. We got the manpower. We have educated and trained you but we don’t have the implements to do so, we think with this drive to bring in investors and to turn around the economy we will get there.
