ED flies to Eastern Europe for help

HARARE - President Emmerson Mnangagwa is between the proverbial rock and a hard place as he battles to mitigate the country’s worsening economic rot — with his impending business trip to Eastern Europe drawing fire from many sceptical quarters which doubt that these jaunts will yield anything tangible.

He should pass through Sudan and Venezuela, big-time friends of zanupf and Mugabe. A waste of resources and time eastern Europe is equally poor.

He should hold talks with Chamisa and form a government of National Unity. That will bring a bit of legitimacy to his government which may lead to an increase in foreign direct investment. He should also urgently consider joining the Rand Monetary Union.

Zimbabwe is on the brink of an untold crisis leading to ZANU pf being annihilated in 2023 or a catastrophic coup de tat of West African proportions. My advice to the MDC and ZANU PF think tanks is as follows: 1. The President to present a constitutional amendment leading to a three year transitional government as a transitional movement from the military weighted democracy to a people democracy. 2. Dissolve Parliament and arrange for elected MPs to retain a defined role during the transition 3. Elevate the MDC leader to the Vice Presidency with executive powers in the transition. 4. Appoint a team co-chaired by Biti and Ncube to engage multi-lateral financial institutions in a push for debt remission and mobilisation of capital / donor funds. 5. A appoint a Committee led by Chinamasa to remove all retrogressive legislation and align all laws to the constitution. 6. Disband ZEC and appoint a truly independent board 7. Provide an undertaking to development partners of a diminished military role with the GNU period before elections can be held. 8 Provide a mechanism for the renewal of the GNU to ensure economic and social stability.

Wouldn't agree with you more - Alternative Facts. Most countries have 'ears and eyes' hear on the ground and are so much up to date with the goings on here, thus ED does not need to leave the country a few reforms both socio-political and financial and real action on fighting corruption implementing the planned austerity measures will get the ball rolling.

@alternative facts point number 3 is wrong Chamisa is the president that is the starting point non negotiatable@xesha we say no to a government of national unity but yes to a national transition government

Zimbabwe is in capable hands and the economy is recovering. Tourism sector has fully recovered, thanks to ex-minister Walter Mzembi. Agriculture needs to be sorted. All commercial farms should be sold and title deeds given to the owners so that they can borrow and produce. Command agriculture and 99 year leases on farms is just nonsense. There must be zero tolerance on corruption. Chamisa does not have any solutions, just lies, lies and lies.
