The permanent secretary in the Ministry of Information, Nick Mangwana, said that the government is doing everything in its power to create employment for citizens.
Mangwana told the Daily News that resorting to anarchy will not yield dividends as unrest will batter the country’s image. Said Mangwana:
From the government side, we are doing all that is in our power to ensure that Zimbabweans work.
We are reforming in order to create an enabling environment for capital to feel comfortable.
We are easing our way of doing business so as to bring efficiencies and cut out unnecessary bureaucratic delays.
Regarding unrest and jobs, it is very clear that the anarchy avenue is self-defeating in as far as job creation is concerned.
The last incitement to unrest we had in January left behind infrastructural ruins and a battered image of the country as a destination to foreign capital.
So going down that road will surely not help anyone get a job or put anyone in power for that matter.
Mangwana’s remarks come after opposition MDC president Nelson Chamisa expressed anxiety over the country’s hordes of unemployed youths.
Chamisa said that he was worried that the country could descend into unrest as a result.
