Opposition leader of a faction of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), Professor Welshman Ncube, says economic revival will remain a mirage in Zimbabwe as long as Zanu PF is in power.
Ncube says the Zanu PF government is populated by clueless people who have no idea of how to turn around the troubled economy.
In fact, he says, Zimbabwe would be better off without a government.
He says only a change of government will bring relief to Zimbabweans.
The country is facing economic decline due to lack of foreign direct investment, alleged fears over Zimbabwe’s black economic empowerment program compelling foreign-owned companies to transfer majority stakes to locals and several other issues.
The bulk of the country’s budget is gobbled by wages and salaries of state workers estimated to be almost half a million. The government has repeatedly shifted pay days for its workers and pensioners owing to lack of funds.
