Zimbabwe: Let Us Work Harder - PM

The MDC, the majority party in parliament has a detailed plan to resurrect Zimbabwe from the current economic doldrums.

The party, which has shaken ZANU PF strongholds, has a detailed job plan that will transform the lives of millions of unemployed Zimbabweans.

Speaking in Bulawayo on Saturday, party President Morgan Tsvangirai who is also the country's Prime Minister (PM) said that the job plan was modeled within the Jobs, Upliftment, Investment, Capital and Environment (JUICE), which is the party's economic blueprint for elections launched on Friday.

According to the MDC, JUICE aims to create a million jobs for Zimbabweans between 2013 and 2017.

President Tsvangirai said that the key to jobs for Zimbabweans was to win the elections.

He said: "We don't want to go into the morning after without a plan. The first thing will be to transform the governance system brought by ZANU PF of a one man rule."

President Tsvangirai told the Bulawayo Provincial Council that the party was on its way to win the next elections and was ready to govern.

"The other priority will be to turn the balance of distribution of natural resources. We are spending lots on consumption and that is not healthy for the economy .We want to create jobs. There is no empowerment, which is better than a job. We are ready to govern, we are ready to lead ", President Tsvangirai said.

On Sunday, he will travel to Lupane, Matabeleland North were he is expected to address members of the Provincial Council.
