Economy over politics, says Mnangagwa

Economy over politics, says Mnangagwa
Published: 22 April 2018 (209 Views)
THE era of prioritising politics over the economy is over as the new administration primes the country for growth, President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said.

At a field day at a farm owned by Mr Irvene Taguta of the Johanne Marange Apostolic Church last week, the President said growth projections stood at 4,7 percent up from earlier indications of 3,7 percent. He said in the four months his administration has been in office, investments commitment worth US$7 billion had been secured.

"Tirikuona growth of the economy kubva pauya new dispensation muna November last year; it's just in excess of four months, our economy has grown.

Yanga iri 3,7 percent it has now been declared kuti yavakukura ne 4,7 percent this year. It is going up and the projections are that it will continue to grow because of the policies and because of the focus we are having on the economy.

"It is not anymore politics and politics, we are saying politics and economics. Zvinhu zvinoitisa kuti pamba pave nechikafu ndozvatinotarira. Zvinhu zvinoitisa kuti mhuri imwe neimwe ikwanise kutumira vana vayo ku chikoro zvakanaka ndizvo zvatinotarisa. Zvinhu zvinoita tigare takaguta ndozvatinotarisa. Zvinoita kuti tigare takapfeka zvakanaka; ndozvatinotarisa," he said.

Turning to why Government summarily dismissed striking nurses last week, the President said the concerned workers refused to return to work even though Government had released more than $17 million to meet their demands.

He explained that because of the Independence Day holiday which saw banks traditionally closing, some nurses did not see the transactions immediately reflecting in their accounts, but this did not mean Government had not honoured its agreement with them.
