“If Old Firms Don’t Close, New Firms Will Never Emerge.” Hon Dr Energy Mutodi (PhD)

Deputy Minister of Information, Energy Mutodi has set social media on fire after suggesting that new companies can only be opened in Zimbabwe when old ones close. He said:

If old firms don’t close, new firms will never emerge.

Mutodi was responding to reports suggesting that Bhadella Wholesalers are closing down this Friday, January 24, as a result of the deteriorating state of affairs.

Bhadhella Wholesalers have been in operation for 88 years.

In response to Mutodi’s remarks, social media users suggested that he should not be anywhere close to the office of a Minister.

The minister, however later said, as an afterthought, that the closure of the company was an unfortunate thing to the country. He said:

Thats very unfortunate, My president as usual he is trying very hard everyday to open all those companies but because of the Sanctions brought by MDCA is cousing all this problem. but will look into this issue.

  1. The Government is on a single track. If anything (everything?) goes wrong, the cause is sanctions. With its head in the sand, they cannot (won’t ) see that the poiicies they pursue,( not the policies they spout), are the root cause along with the eternal corruption that it does not want to eradicate because so many of its members are on the take.

  2. Won’t be surprised if gvt blame sanctions for the hwange floods. These guys are not leaders, they are looters. They are just trying to last as old as they can.

  3. Does anyone still have faith in Zimbabwe’s academics who are in politics? Dr Mutodi like his boss is one gaffe after another…birds of a feather I guess.
