Zimbabwe: Wednesday 5 December 2012 - Issue 483

press release

President Tsvangirai said Zimbabwe needs to fix its governance culture as it is retrogressive and old fashioned. Speaking to the Mashonaland West Provincial leadership, President Tsvangirai asked why the people should be oppressed.

"We want rule of law, not rule by law. We need a new crop of leadership that is focused on issues not on politics. We need to focus on the economy. The MDC government will be focused on giving food to the people, creating jobs and job opportunities for them, developing our infrastructure and improving agricultural yields," he said.

He added that the country needs US$ 14 billion dollars for infrastructural development. He said that national government should focus on knowing what to give the people to make them effective economic players.

Meanwhile, in Masvingo, three huts belonging to an MDC member, Solomon Madyezvivi were torched by suspected Zanu PF supporters on Sunday in ward 1, Gutu West.

MDC Councillor for Ward 23 Nkayi South Brenda Mpofu has received death threats from Welshman Ncube led MDC party members for refusing to defect to their party. Councillor Mpofu said, Welshman's party members descended on her at a developmental meeting on Thursday baying for her blood. The councillor had to seek refuge at a nearby school as Ncube led bloodthirsty thugs bayed for her blood.
