Zimbabwe: Zanu-PF in Rude Wake Up

press release

In a clear bout of bankruptcy of ideas and in a desperate bid to prop up its waning fortunes Zanu PF has now finally seen sense in the MDC thrust on Job creation and has on the 11th hour slotted "Create Employment" in their conference theme slated for the 4th to the 9th of December 2012.

Zanu Pf which all along has been viciously denigrating the MDC Jobs and Upliftment drive through their retinue of surrogates are now savouring a humble pie to embrace the jobs creation idea after realising that it has all along been chasing a wild goose by paddling a desperate "indigenisation" asset grab and strip, which in all intends and purposes is akin to thieving and personal accumulation of wealth by Zanu Pf cronies at the expense of the suffering majority.

The MDC however regrets the apparent lack of sincerity in the last minute scheme by Zanu PF, which is aimed at hoodwinking the unsuspecting majority into thinking that the Sunset party now has an agenda for job creation after years of plunder and looting of national assets in the guise of Black empowerment and or indigenisation.

We are cognisant of the fact that the current version of indeginisation is tantamount to nationalisation and expropriation and it is clearly a political gimmick by ZANU PF given its unrepentant history.

It is vital for Zimbabweans and the world to know that the degeneration of our great country's investment climate, the appearance of renewed shake-downs on behalf of cronies, and the return to patronage can be reversed, in the interests of genuinely inclusive, pro-poor development and job creation.
