President vowed to continue working to uplift Zimbabwe
President Mnangagwa said yesterday he would work tirelessly at home and abroad to end Zimbabwe’s isolation as he responded to queries from quarters seeking to make political capital by criticising his foreign trips.
The new administration has embarked on a mission to cleanse a nation that has long suffered under sanctions and international isolation by declaring Zimbabwe open for business.
In a post on his Facebook account yesterday, President Mnangagwa said it was time to mend relations with the international community.
He was writing from China where he was on five-day State visit that ended yesterday.
In his first direct response to reports casting aspersions on his foreign trips, President Mnangagwa wrote: “I have seen some comments here asking why these foreign trips are necessary at this time. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and I appreciate your opinions.
“Let us remember where we were, and how we suffered as an isolated nation. In this new era Zimbabwe is open to the world, and governments, businesses and individuals all are looking to do business with us. The new Zimbabwe must embrace the international community in order to secure crucial foreign investment. These projects will create jobs, and foreign investment will inject crucial cash into our economy.”
He vowed to continue his work .
