Mujuru said the manifesto speaks to creation of jobs, although she could not disclose the number of jobs they were hoping to create when elected to power this year.
“We do not, in our manifesto, promise the actual number of jobs to be created, Zanu PF are liars, but I can assure you that we will create more than just millions of jobs,” she said.

Mujuru, who was hounded out of Zanu PF after serving 36 years in former President Robert Mugabe’s government as a Cabinet minister and Vice-President, said she will seek to usher in a new governance system when elected.

“May I start by noting that the 2018 elections presents us with a chance to usher in a new era, an era where all Zimbabweans, across age groups, bloodlines, colour lines, poverty lines, party lines, religious lines and academic lines, will enjoy shared destiny and shared prosperity in a context of popular democracy in place of the current coup government,” she said.

Mujuru’s manifesto anchors on reviving the public and private sector through weeding out corruption and ramping up a culture of good governance.

PRC pledges to grow the economy by at least 10% per year and creating jobs by up to 70% in the first five years of their rule.

On the financial sector, Mujuru proposes to control interest rates and bank charges in a move aimed at promoting financial inclusion for everyone.

“Monitor and control fee charges and lending rates of banks and other financial institutions to avoid arbitrage and usurious rates,” reads part of the manifesto.

Her government will also seek to promote banks or institutions which will lend money to Small to Medium Enterprises, while recapilalising the RBZ so that it can play its role as lender of last resort effectively.

    Whats wrong with these women “DOCTORS”….the “Khupes”,”Mujurus” etc.Attention seekers,I presume.

  4. An exercise in futility. We have to study the political whirlwind before meandering in the desert of hopelessness. If the mountain will not come to Muhammad, then Muhammad must go to the mountain. Its another five years in the cold for Mujuru. Pathetic!

  5. No one knows exactly who will win the elections.Chamisa has bn lying everywhere across the breath & length of the country; the majority who happen to b non partisan voters are likely to go with Ngwena or Mujuru who appear to b more real.In fact Mujuru might strike a surprise win if she concentrated with women voters who are the majority-articulating women issues more louder than ever;she appears a credible candidate for women or will achieve setting herself on the map on the political landscape in the years to come

  6. Some idiots think their own parties are the only ones to follow, anybody else’s choice is wrong. I wish the army should take over leadership until all this madness comes to a stop. This is a democratic society, respect others’ choice too fools
