PRESIDENT Mnangagwa has implored the nation to circumvent economic sanctions imposed on the country by being innovative and strategic in order to attain Vision 2030, which is premised on developing a prosperous society in eight years’ time.
Speaking at the burial of Brigadier-General Benjamin Mabenge (Rtd) at National Heroes’ Acre on Wednesday, President Mnangagwa said the country should take a leaf from liberation cadres who remained resolute and determined to the end.
“The quest of independence called for strategic, innovative and creative thinkers able to find practical solutions in the waging of the protracted armed struggle. These traits were exhibited by a handful of cadres in the mould of the late Cde Mabenge,” President Mnangagwa said.
“As a nation, let us draw from this rich liberation war culture to accelerate the attainment of our national vision 2030. In doing so, we must remain resolute, determined and focused, particularly in an environment in which our former colonisers and those that seek global hegemony continue to punish us for owing our land and that which is under it,” he said.
The President said under his leadership and watch, Zimbabweans shall be masters of their own destiny.
To this end, President Mnangagwa said the Second Republic will fight to ensure that the country wins its economic battle to attain a prosperous future for Zimbabweans.
