"Fellow Zimbabweans, 40 Years After Independence, Let's Remain Hopeful," - ED

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has urged Zimbabweans to remain hopeful and steadfast saying that Vision 2030 remains alive despite the coronavirus pandemic that has resulted in the closure of countries worldwide.

He made the remarks in his 2020 independence speech to celebrate Zimbabwe’s 40th independence.

The president added that although the country’s friends and foreign investors are essential in the attainment of the country’s envisioned future, collective efforts of locals remain significant.

He also urged Zimbabweans to “scale up dialogue among each other to harness our abilities, competences, skills and resources.”

Mnangagwa also said that achieving food security remains the country’s key priority adding that the country’s stocks continue to grow as a result of “massive imports” which are meant to avert starvation.

This year’s independence day comes when the country is grappling with coronavirus and has imposed a 21-day lockdown making it impossible to gather at stadiums as was the case each year for the past 39 years.

It also comes when the country’s economy has nosedived, reaching unprecedented levels in the past 10 years.

The country that was once the jewel of Africa, in the words of late Tanzanian president Julius Mwalimu Nyerere, has been reduced to a mere beggar.
