An economic analyst, Vince Musewe‎, has challenged the government to convert its wealth  into tangible value or wealth in which nobody should be left behind.

"Once we have a new govt. made up of a team of competent technocrats and political leaders whose values reflect inclusiveness ethical conduct integrity and accountability, I have no doubt in our ability to rapidly develop our country," he said.

"In my opinion Zimbabweans in the Diaspora are our future competitive advantage . There is no African country with millions of educated skilled citizens out there besides Zimbabwe and a future brain gain will create the necessary energy and momentum."

He said besides them coming home, people will have access to a very wide international network of patriots who can facilitate international trade, technology transfers, innovation and investment.

"We will need to take full advantage of that. Added to this is that Zimbabweans in general have become serial entrepreneurs always looking for opportunities. We must harness this new competence for the betterment of our country," he said.

"Zimbabweans will rise worldwide and we indeed can become the Singapore of Africa.However there must come a time where economic freedom and not politics leads development.  Our new narrative must be built by everyone and we must create wealth for our country and our people. Critical to this is that we do all we can to remove the dictator and his cabal of predators. Divisions amongst opposition politicians are unnecessary. Mugabe and Zanu PF have unequivocally failed to create the Zimbabwe we want or imagine. It will be up to all of us!"
