Pledge to the nation, 2017

Kasiyamhuru said that his party is comfortable in its belief that God raises men and women, from time to time, to fulfill certain generational mandates. He said that

our elders have done their part. Today, God has raised a group of young and God-fearing leaders to take Zimbabwe to the Canaan of economic freedom, with the sole mandate of building a great nation of Zimbabwe.


He also said that:

Prosperity and posterity is at the top of our agenda, and Zimbabweans can only be free when there is no more fear of our government, when every Zimbabwean has access to the national resources of the country regardless of their political, religious, tribal, sectorial or racial group and when foreign economic colonialists and opportunists are out of Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe will only engage foreign participation in our economy from a position of strength, guided by 500-year development plans in all sectors


Blessing also claimed that he has a vision of prosperity and posterity for Zimbabwe, which will be achieved through very long-term planning, entrepreneurship, innovation and acknowledging God as the ultimate blesser of nations. He promised to build a conducive investment environment for Zimbabweans first and foreign direct investors later.
