Use profits to uplift nation: Mujuru | The Herald [WTF?]

Vice President Joice Mujuru has implored companies that are making profits to share with communities around them and the nation at large to move forward the vision of the Zimbabwe Agenda for Sustainable Socio-Economic Transformation (ZimAsset).
Officiating at the handover of a US$2 million refurbished nurses’ home at Harare Central Hospital by Mimosa Mining Company on Thursday, VP Mujuru said most companies were seized with the reckless pursuit for profits.

VP Mujuru said Mimosa was different from other business entities that sought to fatten their pockets first before they turned to assist other people.

“Saka muri kunzwa husiku nemasikati, tirikutaurisa zvikuru kuti izvi aa-a, zvekuti kana mawana chinhu secompany idyai nevamwe madyire akafanana nekuuya kuzovandudzira zvinobatsira ruzhinji, ndozvatiri kukurudzira,” she said.

“Zimbabwe, vaMugabe nesu tese hatisi kukurudzira nyaya yehuwori. Tiri kuona kubvarurwa kuri kuitwa chimiro chedu cheZimbabwe, madzishe tibatsirei.”

VP Mujuru warned traditional leaders who were represented at the function to handle the land redistribution exercise properly and to work well with well- wishers intending to assist the country in moving forward.

She urged the corporate sector to continue assisting Government in areas such as infrastructure so that the little resources at the disposal of Government would be channelled to other critical areas to develop the country.

“The successful implementation of Zim-Asset requires the participation in various ways of people from all walks of life,” she said.
VP Mujuru together with other dignitaries toured the refurbished nurses’ home to witness the new-look 450 nurses’ rooms and laundry.
Floors, roofs, walls and lighting of the nurses’ rooms, study rooms, lecture theatre, staff clinic were all spruced up.

Mimosa Mining Company executive chairman Mr Winston Chitando said although they had invested a lot in Zvishavane where they operated from, it had always been the mining company’s dream to have a social responsibility programme that benefits the nation.
Harare Central Hospital chief executive Ms Peggy Zvavamwe said the little funding that was available at the institution was used for patients’ care.

Ms Zvavamwe said maintenance had been stopped over the years, except for emergencies.

Health and Child Care Minister Dr David Parirenyatwa and his deputy Dr Paul Chimedza, Mines and Mining Development Minister Cde Walter Chidhakwa, Minister of State for Provincial Affairs Harare province Cde Miriam Chikukwa, Harare Mayor Clr Bernard Manyenyeni and other senior Government officials attended the event.

    In the mid 80’s the state went to buy military equipment from Brazil. These were the cascaveles, very mobile small tanks. These were used to escort commercial trucks to Beira because of the RENAMO threats.
    The cost of these tanks was $30 million . The inflated prise we bought them was $60 million. Guess who got the loot, Mujuru. and we call these thieves heroes.

    Question : How much profit has each of the Ministers who own vast amounts of farmland , mines and other businesses made over the years? And how much of those profits have they invested into the communities they purport to represent?

    Has any of the built so much as a creche for the children of their farm workers?

    If not then stop forcing other people to do things you can’t do yourselves especially when you cant even provide these businesses with the support they need to grow. Besides its government ‘s job to provide for the communities and provide conducive environments for business to thrive after all we pay taxes. Sounds to me the likes of Joyce are dumping their responsibility onto businesses.

    She needs a speech writer since she clearly has no idea herself. That said it is comforting to see how far out of touch this presidential aspirant is. The more she speaks the more she seems like Grace. I wonder if she watches reality tv ?

    Talk of being comforted. I see fewer ZANU types writing comments on this site. It seems they have realised it is better to shut up than to keep on providing amusement for the rest of us. Perhaps this process can be pushed in the real world too.

    Please forgive her because she does not understand basic economics what she calls profit is actually a loss,because profits are achieved by these looters who get millions without any physical inputs except thieving courage supported by law enforcement agents who watch helplessly but use brutal force to innocent unarmed women.

    Fat overfed chefette why doesn’t she appeal to her fellows to pay just ten per cent of their theft back to the country? The Mujuru clan owns hundreds of thousands of acres. They are rich beyond imagining and they appeal to businesses? Are they so blind they do not see the crime they themselves commit? If the Mnangagwas and the Mujurus, the Chiwengas, the Mpofus just paid back what they have stolen from my country , Zimbabwe would be able to solve all its problems in a trice

    What’s happening to all the tax we pay? The toll fees? The pensions contributions to NSSA? The revenue from the diamonds?

    Just look at yourself in the mirror Joyce. Ask yourself about the corruption that you so desperately want us to stop talking about. Are you such a leech?
