Mujuru predicts post poll bliss

Vice-President Joice Mujuru yesterday said the economy was likely to blossom after the hamornised elections this year as the inclusive government had laid the foundation for growth.

Addressing the Zimbabwe International Business Conference on the sidelines of the 54th edition of the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF) in Bulawayo, Mujuru said the economy would benefit from the stability in the post-election period.

“Post-election period, I am confident that Zimbabwe will see more consolidation of the preparatory work done by political leaders,” she said.

“This period will also see development of many public, private partnership arrangements and more building blocks necessary for the economy to drive towards sustainable growth.”

Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai also echoed Mujuru’s sentiments saying: “Humility of government, business, labour and society is required to see us through pre- and post-election period.”

“Zimbabwe is in its final phase of the inclusive government and an atmosphere of stability and tranquillity is prevailing at the back of the very successful constitutional referendum,” he said in a speech read on his behalf by Deputy Prime Minister Thokozani Khupe.
“Zimbabwe now faces a real test of confidence as the country manages the transition out of the inclusive government set up.”

Tsvangirai urged foreign investors who are still adopting a wait-and-see attitude to put their money in Zimbabwe now.

“To those investors still sitting on the sidelines, I say to them the time to invest in Zimbabwe is now,” he said.

“There has not been a better time and opportunity to invest in Zimbabwe than now rather than adopt a wait-see-attitude, waiting for the election outcome.”

He said any government formed after elections was likely to continue using the Medium Term Plan as its economic blueprint.

“We will insist on a free and fair election as a precondition for the sustainability of business during and after the election taking into cognisance that any disturbances to the economy will affect the consumer, who is a worker to labour, a client to business and a voter to the politicians,” Tsvangirai said.

Mujuru bemoaned the sanctions against the Zanu PF elite saying they continued to hurt the economy.

  5. @Willard, could you explain what do you mean by saying if zanu wins there would be no sanctions. Remember you can fool those who does not know the zimbabwe of yesterday.Sanctions came after our economy was already into its knees.Sanctions are just but an excuse from those who benefited from this era.We have seen ordinary people like so and so becoming rich by night and the rest of the citizens wallowing in poverty,and you still beleive there were sanctions in zimbabwe.If zanu wins then it means w are going back to stone age.

    1. Lets remove the colonial mentality that whites are the only ones who can save us. We can do it if and only if we can change our way of thinking.To be underdeveloped came as a result of these so called whites supression, remember chibaro sytem.The resources which was used to develop the developed nations came from us (NOT only zim)
