Second Republic set to fulfil vision 2030

Derick Tsimba

The Second Republic should soon meet its target for attaining vision 2030 owing to the determination it has set in its strategies to turn around the economy. Towards a prosperous and empowered upper middle income society by 2030, Government continues to roll out its policies as outlined in the National Development Strategy 1 (NDS1).

Turning around the Zimbabwean economy remains a torrid and daunting task ever since the New Republic inception as the MDC-Alliance continues to be a derailment from success. We can remember how the country in past two decades had been dismantled by the then MDC and its handlers, fighting to regain what they felt had lost their grip on land entitlement.

During that period, the West ensured the nation remained unproductive subjecting the people to economic sanctions. Zimbabwe lost its economic prowess as spanners were thrown to make sure the industry was dead. MDC-Alliance involvement cannot be left out for inviting sanctions on fellow citizens which brought much suffering to the nation as the so called targeted sanctions affected the majority especially the poor and needy.

Exposing itself as an extension of neo-colonialism in Zimbabwe, the MDC-A since its establishment has been part of the neo-colonialism agenda of using globalisation, economics, conditional aid and cultural imperialism as a way of influencing Zimbabweans to submit under western control.

Having failed to win the vote of the majority in Zimbabwe, the MDC-Alliance continues to expose itself through non-involvement on economic developmental fundamentals.

It remains on record that the MDC-A refused to be part of Political Actors Dialogue (Polad), a platform for political parties that fielded presidential candidates in the 2018 harmonised elections formed to contribute to social, economic and political progress.

Getting the country forward the Second Republic has exposed the opposition party MDC-A’s determination as a distractive force in Zimbabwe. By putting in place the strategic NDS1 to ensure Zimbabwe has hope for the future to look up to.

Today the country continues to ride on the success of engagement and re-engagement with the international community since the coming in of the Second Republic. Recently Zimbabwe welcomed the Republic of Ireland on its quest to get opportunities in the highly rewarding agricultural sector.

Through engagement and re-engagement Zimbabwe has managed to make the European countries to consider the nation as their partner for investment and international business.

Zimbabwe also recently received praise from the Chinese ruling party, the Communist Party of China (CPC) that the country continues to lead in Africa as a voice for equality, sovereignty, and international law.

CPC also acknowledged Zimbabwe for constantly standing up against neo-colonialism and its puppet MDC-A which has seen the country earning respect from the rest of the world.

The country with its capable leadership, remains determined to turn around its economy as its economic policies strategized in the NDS1 are set to fulfil vision 2030.

Zimbabwe should unite as one and pursue its economic interests without external influence propelled by some NGOs and the US Embassy in Harare.  

A lot of funding on activities that disturb the progress of Zimbabwe continues to take place as projects to fuel the regime change agenda. We can recall how the trio Joana Mamombe, Netsai Marova and Cecilia Chimbiri faked abductions creating an opportunity for human rights activists, the Western embassies and opposition politicians to demonise Government painting it as a cruel regime.

Zimbabwe continues to battle the vices from the West and its Embassies to achieve a better nation which should live no behind by 2030.

As outlined in the NDS1, consistent with the collective aspirations and determination of the people of Zimbabwe to achieve an Empowered and Prosperous Upper Middle-Income Society by 2030, the Second Republic launched Vision 2030 to chart a new transformative and inclusive development agenda. It is the pursuit of this vision which will deliver broad based transformation, new wealth creation and expanding horizons of economic opportunities for all Zimbabweans, with no one left behind.
