DEPUTY CHIEF WRITER 14 February 2018
HARARE – The Noah Manyika-led Build Zimbabwe Alliance has announced the
appointment of William Pilbrough to be the party’s vice president as the
country hurtles towards the harmonised elections scheduled for July, this
Speaking at a press conference held yesterday at Sapes Trust, Manyika said
the appointment of Pilbrough, symbolises the death of racism in the
country’s political sphere.
“Building a country and an economy that will meet the needs of every
Zimbabwean can only happen if the full participation of every citizen in
deciding the future of the nation and rebuilding it is harnessed. We are a
nation of exceptional entrepreneurial talent with significant human
capital of all colours and from every tribe, inside and outside of our
borders,” he said.
Manyika said for two days in November last year, Zimbabweans of all races
and tribes came together to demand the resignation of former President
“They painted a picture of the Zimbabwe our leaders have denied us for
decades, a Zimbabwe where all citizens are equal and have much to give to
each other and their nation,” he said.
Giving a brief background on Pilbrough, Manyika said he was born in 1972
in Chinhoyi and is an experienced, hands-on financial executive.
Pilbrough, who told the press that he is into politics full time, said
there are a lot of things that have to be right as there is so much
disunity in the country.
