POLICY inconsistency by MDC-T in Government is hampering the development of the national economy, Zanu-PF Vice President and Second Secretary Cde Joice Mujuru, has said.
Addressing delegates at a Zanu-PF economic cluster workshop in Harare yesterday, Cde Mujuru, who was represented by the party’s secretary for administration Cde Diydmus Mutasa, said efforts by Government to ensure industrial rebirth were not progressing because of MDC-T.
“Being a people centred party we have harnessed our efforts and directed energies towards restoring our national economy to its past heights of growth, sustainability, equitable redistribution of wealth and prosperity for all, but some of our colleagues in Government are pulling in the opposite direction,” she said.
Cde Mujuru said the Look East Policy Zanu-PF adopted was beginning to bear fruits as evidenced by the number of Asian countries investing in Zimbabwe.
“We shall continue to solidify this relationship and anticipate travelling further in this promising direction as we embark on a programme that will put our economy at par with other African and world giants,” she said.
The workshop was held under the theme: “Defending National Sovereignty and Consolidating Indigenisation and Empowerment: Driving the Zimbabwean Economy to Greater Heights.”
Cde Mujuru described as “just” and “superior” Zanu-PF policies towards the building of the country’s economy.
“The victory vindicates justness and superiority of Zanu-PF policies under the gallant leadership of President Mugabe,” she said.
“We shall continue to champion programmes that bring the economy and its benefits closer to the people like rural wholesales project launched last month in Mt Darwin.”
Zanu-PF secretary for economic affairs, Cde Obert Mpofu, said most companies were struggling for viability hence the need for investors to support them.
“The sad thing is that there has been massive job losses.
Zanu-PF, Cde Mpofu said, was worried by lack of capacity by Treasury to pay reasonable salaries to civil servants.
