Opposition leader, Linda Masarira has said that Zimbabweans need to be united in the year 2020 so as to achieve short, medium to long term goals.
She posted on Twitter suggesting that a number of set goals including the creation of employment, eradication of corruption and reviving the economy remain a pie in the air. She said:
2020 is indeed a new year and a new decade yet there is nothing new for us to celebrate as Zimbabweans. Our economy is still in doldrums. Our streets are still dirty, we still have corrupt ministers and government officials…
Zimbabwe is still not open for open for business to Zimbabweans, there are still no jobs, industries are still shut down and still no restitution of externalized funds. No economic and political reforms in sight. Lack of political will to fix Zim is the tragedy of Zimbabwe
In the eyes of ordinary citizens the 2018 Zimbabwean situation is exactly the same as it was in 2019 with added potential to get worse. Access to basics like food, farming inputs, access to social services like education & healthcare is still a real struggle for millions of us
Instead of consolidating efforts to fix Zimbabwe some political actors have become masters of economic terrorism & economic sabotage. Tungamirai Madzokere and Last Maengahama are still in Chikurubhi Maximum prison. Free political prisoners & let’s focus on rebuilding Zimbabwe
The coming of a new year brings new hope, but for us to realize that hope we have to have new mindsets. It is critical for us all to know that we are our own saviours as Zimbabwean citizens to save ourselves from the social, economic and political injustices.
There will be no superhero to come and free us. 2020 is a year of unity for progressive Zimbabweans across social, economic, and political divide to revive our country. We should intensify all our efforts in educating the masses to understand the importance of DEPOLARIZATION
We need change of the governance system & those who seek to succeed in politics must only seek to succeed in the context of the success of the people of Zimbabwe. Anyone who seeks to succeed outside that purpose cannot be furthering the interests of our nation.
Our independence must qualitatively transform the lives of the people of Zimbabwe. Our politics must be underpinned by the need to make our independence meaningful to the majority of our people. This year is a year of action & transformation
