ZANU PF secretary for administration, Obert Mpofu has said Zimbabwe is at a critical moment it should be a destination for capital.
He made the remarks in response to a question by Open Parly which sought his opinion on how far the country had gone in attaining the future envisioned before independence. The question reads:
Zimbabwe got independence 40 years ago how far are we from reaching the promised milk and honey.
40 years later we should be working hard to value-add the milk and the honey. Its lazy to merely talk of milk and honey. This is why we should be engaged in mechanisation and retooling of industry.
At this time than never before we must make Zimbabwe a destination for capital.
His remarks come when Zimbabwe this year commemorated 40 years since attaining independence from Britain in 1980.
Some feel disillusioned as much of the promised goodies including financial and political freedoms remain unattained forty years later.
While some are accusing ZANU PF of both collapsing a once vibrant economy and trampling upon human rights, the ruling party cites sabotage, sanctions and climate change as the major variables hamstringing the achievement of set objectives.
