Chamisa, who was accompanied by fellow MDC Alliance principal Tendai Biti, said the meeting had provided them an opportunity to present their government work plan to international financiers ahead of next month’s polls.
“It was an excellent and big meeting. They first met the outgoing government of (President Emmerson) Mnangagwa and then they met the incoming government and we were glad to host them and answer their questions,” he said.
Chamisa said the investors wanted guarantees on the security of their investments.
“They were interested in knowing our action plan and government work plan once we get into power. They are interested in the political climate and our ability to provide a platform, which is bankable for their investments and we were glad to share with them our work plan, which we will unroll tomorrow at Jubilee Centre when we launch our manifesto,” he said.
Chamisa said the investors also wanted to know if his party was open to rope in Mnangagwa’s allies in his government if he wins the elections.
“The future needs all Zimbabweans to work together across all political fronts, we need to listen to each other and ensure that we do the best not for the party or its supporters but for everyone,” Chamisa said.
Soon after the business meeting Chamisa took to social blogging site Twitter to share the news.
“We mean business! Just been in an excellent capital & investment breakfast meeting with a strong group of British and international. Capital is excited & investment is attracted to our rich menu of policies in the New Zimbabwe blueprint to be launched tomorrow,” he said!
Biti said the investors were excited by the presentation, saying the MDC Alliance answered the hard questions, which the people of Zimbabwe are interested in knowing.
