President Emmerson Mnangagwa has urged the Zimbabwean citizenry to channel their energy to national building and productivity to improve their livelihoods.
He made the remarks while officially launching the US$51 million farm mechanisation facility from Belarus in Harare this week. Mnangagwa said:
I call upon all our Zimbabwean citizens to occupy themselves with the concept of productivity and abandon the dreaming they have in mind of demonstrations and violence.
I encourage all political parties, churches and non-governmental organisations to mobilise our communities to be more productive leveraging on Government policies and programmes.
My administration remains open to ideas, perspectives, opportunities, partnerships and investments to revamp and grow the sector and the economy at large. As evident in the success scored to date, due to the robust and responsive policies being implemented by my Government and the active involvement of all Zimbabweans, I have no doubt that Vision 2030 will soon be a success.
His call for the nation to focus on developmental issues comes when the country’s socio-economic and political crises are deepening.
The president also speaks when government workers have since last year been thronging to the streets to register their displeasure over poor salaries and working conditions.
