In an interview with The Standard, a presidential candidate in the 2018 harmonised election and Alliance for the People’s Agenda (APA) leader Nkosana Moyo said that President Emmerson Mnangagwa is not the right man for the job.
Asked if Mnangagwa has the capacity to govern and is the right man for the job, Moyo said:
On the basis of the evidence in front of us and in front of the population, the answer must be no. I am not making a statement about President Mnangagwa as a human being. I am making it as an assessment of what you and I see on the street.
Life has not improved, but not only that, the more worrisome thing is that nothing is being done that makes sense. And nothing that is being done has been done in a manner that seeks firstly to mobilise the support of Zimbabweans so that they understand what the game plan is.
Things are being imposed on them whereas what we expected from a leadership that understands how to make people tighten their belts is that you make them see the plan and explain it. What we are seeing is an imposition of something that has not been presented or debated to the people and what does that mean?
You cannot execute a turnaround plan and not explain to the people for them to understand the nature of the plan and the time frames involved to withstand this pain before things get better.
