Senator wants Govt to give incentives to families to have a minimum of 8 children

Mashonaland West Senator, Mike Byton Musaka (Zanu PF) moved a motion calling on government to incentivise couples with a minimum of eight children, as part of efforts to grow the country’s population while Senator Tabeth Murwira (Mashonaland East Zanu PF), claimed that Zimbabwe’s low population was driving away potential investors.

Part of the motion reads:

Concerned with difficulties to attract investors to Zimbabwe for sustainable profitable investment due to Zimbabwe’s low population, and further concerned that most non-governmental organisations diligently promote birth control downwards instead of encouraging family planning for pro-life, that is population growth, current world trends in population are to encourage large families so as to grow the market for products. The government must encourage large families by giving incentives to families to have a minimum of eight children, and non-governmental organisations promoting birth control should now be requested to promote family growth.
