President Mnangagwa has been told to start implementing reforms from the top before seeking to reform the general populace. This comes after president Mnangagwa remarked during a Capitalk 100.4FM radio show that he would like to see a transformed Zimbabwe.
Speaking on the radio on Friday, Mnangagwa said:
I want my legacy to be that of a reformer. Let us reform the way we do things, reform our economy, reform our institutions, reform our mindsets and reform our legislation. We must turn our backs to old ways and embrace new methods.
News Day, however, feels that Mnangagwa needs to first work hard to reform his team’s mindsets and way of doing things because “that is where the problems afflicting this nation are originating from.” The publication says:
The reforms he is telling us about should start from the top.
News Day made reference to utterances by the Grain Millers Association of Zimbabwe (GMAZ) vice-chairperson Masimba Dzomba who “unashamedly” announced that Zimbabwe was left with one month’s supply of wheat in the country.
