ED: Choosing Populist Policies Is Doing A Disservice To Our Country

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has defended the austerity measures saying that they were for the greater good of the country.

He speaks when the nation is crying over the hardships induced by the government initiated austerity measures. His remarks follow Foreign Affairs Minister, SB Moyo’s warning that three coming years will be tougher.

Speaking at the politburo’s 331st meeting where he opened with a call for honest introspection, the President said:

As we approach the first anniversary of the second republic, we must intently introspect the degree we have achieved that which we promised our people as outlined in the people’s manifesto. I challenge the information and publicity department of the party to develop a communication strategy that will highlight our successes since being elected into office. Our victory in July 2018 was a call to service, our task remains enormous but if we remain united nothing is impossible.

I am aware that our current austerity measures are causing some hardships to our people but this is necessary for us to have a stable and growing economy which is in sync with others in the region and elsewhere. If we choose populist policies we will be doing a disservice to our country.  So we must brace up and endure the hardships, albeit always explaining to our people what we are trying to do. As I highlighted in the past, the situation will begin to get better by the end of the year.
