Speaking to the Zimbabwe Sentinel, ZIST Director Tinashe Muzamhindo said this is now time for Zimbabwe to focus on strategic thinking bent on moulding growth and development space of an economy that benefits all Zimbabweans .
He added that Zimbabweans must centralise their minds on positioned strategic thinking meant to build a better Zimbabwe rather than make weird thoughts without any direction.
“Our focus is on positioning strategic thinking bent on moulding a better country with people, leaders who have direction and know what they want, what to be done and give direction to the nation.”
“I stand to blame all political parties because they are all not yet strategically positioned, bent towards development of our country. We need to create minds meant to build on a new Zimbabwe with leaders positioned towards economic growth and development”.
“We are like people not yet organised and positioned to stand and mould a nation for today and the future. Thus, why we say let us have solutions to challenges we have as a nation so that we can go through what holds us backwards.’’
ZIST Director Muzamhindo reiterates that there are issues like corruption but they are better to look at . Rather, he adds that it is time to look at strategically positioning our ideas towards social cohesion. He said social cohesion calls for dialogue which builds up on togetherness, peace, public order and good Governance.
“Corruption, yes we know is a talk of the day but it is everywhere. Countries like Russia have corruption but they are doing well in terms of development. We need to focus first on issues of concern related to social cohesion through strategic positioning of our thoughts towards development in order to save future generations from the current challenges we have”, he said
