MDC-T deputy secretary general Tapiwa Mashakada has said Zimbabweans are capable of achieving regime change which if not an offence to do so as elections through the constitutions allow such.

Mashakada said regime change means changing the government.

"It is a colloqial english literal translation of French. The 2018 elections seek to usher in a new gvt through the ballot. Therefore Zimbabweans are capable of achieving Regime Change through the ballot. Without Regime Change there is no economic turnaround because the same Zanu PF government has failed to grow the economy and provide financial stability," he said.

"They have failed to create the 2 2 million jobs. They have failed to open closed industries. They have failed to stop corruption. So Regime Change means voting for better governance and good policies."

He said this is why a new government is long overdue for Zimbabwe. In my view the next government should: Create a $100 billion dollar economy through domestic and foreign investment and the leveraging of natural resources as well as harnessing the youth dividend driven demand, Introduce a new governance culture by implementing the constitution- rule of law, democracy and good a clean government.

"Government should resolve the Currency Crisis. The next govt should stop corruption by forming a clean gvt with a code of conduct and by promoting transparency and accountability across all sectors of the economy. No one will be above or under the law. Police will be given full powers to investigate and arrest. The independence of the judiciary will be guaranteed," he said.

"We will establish a $20 billion Emergency Recovery Fund to deal with the humanitarian catastrophe and lay conditions for growth. Resources will be mobilized to boost Production in all sectors of the economy. Devolution will be implemented in terms of the Constitution. International re-engagement will be pursued with a view to have the self-inflicted Sanctions removed as we Zimbabwe returns to the rule of law and observing human rights and international law. Massive infrastructural development will be rolled out to enable the $100 bn economy. Investment in rural development and small business development will be prioritized. The education and health sectors should be prioritized. (To be continued). Only possible after Regime Change."
