Central Bank governor chief, John Mangudya has called for unity of purpose among Zimbabweans in order to move the country forward.
Mangudya made the call on Thursday while officiating at the ongoing 2019 Confederation of Zimbabwe Industries (CZI) congress in Victoria Falls. He said:
I would like to state here today (yesterday) that while we have all these things in our spheres, the major missing link in this equation is unity of purpose.
You will never grow as a country (out of your problems) if there is no unity of purpose and a common approach to dealing with your problems.
We need to be perfectly united in all we do. We are faced with a situation when the world has little confidence in our way of doing things. Remember, we used to be called the breadbasket of Africa.
We can return there if we do things together and driven, like I said, by a common interest.
Mangudya said that he was very satisfied with the interbank market. Since February 2019, the interbank market has improved so much that $2 million is being purchased on the market compared to $500 000 in the past, Mangudya claimed.
