LISTICLE: Things Said By Trevor Ncube As He Quits Mnangagwa’s PAC

Trevor Ncube, the chairman of Alpha Media Holdings, last week announced that he was quitting the Presidential Advisory Council (PAC) citing a lot of issues bordering on President Emmerson Mnangagwa‘s failure to transform the country’s fortunes. 

The PAC was formed in 2019 to advise the president on various matters including religion, and business. Some of the PAC members have since left. We present below a list of things that were said by Ncube as he quit PAC:

1). Why he gave Mnangagwa a chance: He said Mnangagwa played a role in the massacre of 20 000 people in Matabeleland. When he joined PAC, he thought the president was willing to “make amends” for the Gukurahundi which has remained a topical one since the 1980s.

2). 2017 coup: The people who toppled Mugabe in a 2017 coup did not do it to advance the national interest, but to champion their personal interests.

3). Mnangagwa worse than Mugabe: He says Mnangagwa is worse than his predecessor, the late former president Robert Mugabe. He said he believed Mnangagwa deserved a chance and after being Mugabe’s top lieutenant for years, he had learnt things that should be made right. Ncube explained that Mnangagwa has mutilated the constitution, making the judiciary biased for him. 

4). Business opportunities: He also speaks of what he says are business opportunities in Zimbabwe.

i). Cannabis industry:, laws are being fine-tuned to allow investors to come and invest, licences will cost US$57.

ii). Housing Infrastructure: There is also building boom sponsored by diaspora remmittances.

iii). Agriculture: Cotton the second-largest crop. Soya beans – we-re producing about 30 per cent of our national requirement. The return is 200 per cent. Tobacco – the golden leaf, which contributes 11 per cent . He noted that one of the issues affecting the Agriculture sector is that the Southern African country machineray is archaic. Irrigation equipment has not been renewed since the end of the Universal Declaration of Independence (UDI).

iv). Tourism: Victoria Falls, Kariba etc have the potential to contribute significantly to the GDP. The collapsed transport system is hindering the full-growth of the industry.

v). Mining: Zimbabwe is a mining country has over 40 occurances of minerals – diamond, platnum, gold, lithium (largest deposit of lithium on the African continent), Oil and gas being explored in Muzarabani.

vi) National Infrastructure: National infrastructure has not been repaired for years. Road networks declared a national disaster. It’s a crisis and also an oportunity for businesses.

5). Zimbabwe a dual economy: Zimbabwe’s economy is now being driven by the informaal sector while the formal sector is assuming a retreating role. Ncube added that nobody has confidence in the local currency, the Zimbabwe Dollar. The government is saying we are moving away from dollarisation but reality on the ground shows that the country is actually dollarisation. He accuses Finance and Economic Development Minister, Mthuli Ncube of lying essentially.

6). No confidence in CCC: Ncube also said “I have no confidence in the MDC now caled something else” in apparent refence to the Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC), a party led by Nelson Chamisa. He says NO one seems to have the capacity to turn around the country’s fortunes.

7). ZANU PF Influence: ZANU PF way of doing things (Corruption, violence) is being implemented in all other political parties and by individuals in personal life.
