President Mnangagwa has urged recently sworn-in legislators to consider and accelerate the completion of critical matters that were not dealt with during the Ninth Parliament.
Addressing the First Session of the Tenth Parliament of Zimbabwe in Mt Hampden on Tuesday, President Mnangagwa said:
“It is my singular honour to address this August House, as we open the First Session of the Tenth Parliament of Zimbabwe.
“I challenge you to accelerate the completion of the matters outstanding from the legislative agenda of the Ninth Parliament. Much work lies ahead.
The Tenth Session of Parliament comes less than two months after the country successfully conducted credible, free, fair and peaceful harmonised elections.
“Honourable Members of Parliament, may I take this opportunity to congratulate you all for having secured the mandate to serve the people of our great motherland, Zimbabwe, in your respective constituencies for the next five years,” he said.
President Mnangagwa said the country’s economy has been on an upward trajectory, recording positive growth rates across various sectors despite illegal sanctions.
