The government says the Chinese have not been forthcoming as expected in helping Zimbabwe rebuild its economy.

Presidential Affairs Minister, Didymus Mutasa says Zimbabweans are on their own and as they seek to rebuild the economy, must realise that it is local resources that are key to take the country on a growth and development pattern.

"The Chinese have not been forthcoming. We can not look East or West. We need to look within ourselves," Mutasa said.

Mutasa, who was giving a lecture at the National Defence College in Harare, also spoke about his involvement in the Green Fuel saga, which has hogged the media as he blasted two individuals; Themba Mliswa and Mr Basil Nyabadza for acting in their personal interests.

"They have acted not in the interest of government but their personal interest," he said.

Indicating that he was involved from the initial start up project of Green Fuels, the ethanol producing plant in Chisumbabje, the Mutasa said government remains clear that the project must operate on the 51-49 percent shareholding structure in favour of government.
