FreeZim Congress leader, Joseph Busha said his party was against the US sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe, but President Emmerson Mnangagwa government should address the issues that are negatively affecting citizens such as reckless expenditure and prevalent corruption.
Busha said this while addressing Journalists in Harare today, where he described the anti sanctions march held last week as useless.
“As a Party and as a leader, as FreeZim Congress, we are against the sanctions because you need to know also who you are demonstrating against. So they need to go and demonstrate to Donald Trump, if you cry here and your people do not go to work, how is going to affect America, so that’s not going to help at all. Demonstrations are not going to bring any solution it’s unnecessary,” said Busha.
The opposition leader added the government’s decision to reintroduce new notes in the next fortnight was a deliberate ploy to hoodwink the citizens into believing that Mnangagwa has economic solutions.
“So the new currency they want to introduce, I don’t think it will solve anything because it’s not backed by production. So we need to make sure that there is production and coherence strategy to be able to take Zimbabwe out of its dire,” he added.
Busha further took a swipe on Finance minister Mthuli Ncube that he was an incapable treasury chief who thrives on being economic with the truth on the real crisis in Zimbabwe.
He proposed that Zimbabwe can get out of the economic quagmire by all government partners having a shared vision, nipping of corruption and the cutting down on wasteful government expenditure.
