Mnangagwa getting us nowhere

30 Oct 2019 at 07:25hrs | Views
It is time that President Emmerson Mnangagwa and finance Mthuli Ncube wake up to reality. Both Leaders do not have a strategic and plausible solution to the economic problems prevailing in Zimbabwe. The reality is that Zimbabwe's economic problems are even worsening. The more they make promises the more Zimbabwean economy sinks.

Professer Mthuli Ncube arrived with so many promises in the beginning. His austerity measures are only meant for the poor. Government ministers and other politicians are still enjoying an extravagant lifestyle at the expense of tax payers. Whatever remedies professor Ncube is offering the reality is that Zimbabweans are getting poorer by the day.

Professor Ncube claims and boasts of a surplus budget yet Zimbabwean hospitals have no drugs, the country does not have electricity, inflation is soaring and fuel shortages are the order of the day.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa is simply a copycat of Robert Mugabe. He is globetrotting more than Mugabe did. Mnangagwa has clearly failed to stem the tide of government corruption that has prolonged for decades and has paralysed most government ministries. Mnangagwa appears not to be aware of his key duty which is to lead and supervise all government. On top of that, Mnangagwa spends most of his time in the air hiring the most expensive luxurious jets on auto pilot.

Zimbabwe is a country without a strategic leader. A leader who cannot impose authority on failing government departments. A leader who cannot curb corruption. The time of blaming everything on sanctions is over
