I KNOW you are preaching that your door is open. I appreciate that you are an openminded President. But my dissatisfaction is with the Office of the President and Cabinet, which for years has not given us warm reception in order to engage with you.

We have several ideas which we have invested in to make our innovations and ideas benefit Zimbabwe, but we are turned down or not even given a platform to present our ideas. As you say, Zimbabwe is open for business. It should also be open to us as Zimbabweans. Our government should be the first to embrace and invest in our ideas and innovations, which will benefit the nation.

As creators of ideas and innovators, we have seen that many Zimbabweans are taking their in ideas and inventions abroad because they are not getting any joy from the "new dispensation". They would have tried our government, but were not welcomed and they went to foreign countries where they were given better reception. As we speak, their ideas and innovations are benefiting foreign countries.

My plea to our President is please ensure your office does not turn away people who come to seek audience with you. They are making you fail to achieve your goal.

So my advice is please make sure your door is open, especially to locals, who have great ideas to better this nation.
