THE Zanu-PF-led Government is going ahead with the implementation of Zim-Asset to spur economic growth, contrary to opposition parties and their pseudo analystsâ claims that the party is neglecting the agenda.
The partyâs national spokesperson Cde Simon Khaya Moyo, said in a statement last Friday that it was on public record that the revolutionary party was committed to uplifting the lives of ordinary Zimbabweans through people-oriented policies.
âThe Zanu-PF-led Government of President Robert Mugabe is making remarkable progress in its quest to accelerate the implementation of the Zimbabwe Agenda for Sustainable Socio-Economic Transformation and this is despite continued existence of sanctions and the futile attempts by the opposition and its ghost economic analysts to suggest otherwise,â said Cde Khaya Moyo.
âMany fair-minded people, including genuine economic analysts, seem to share our view that President Mugabeâs Government has taken bold economic steps in the right direction.â
Cde Khaya Moyo said the recent influx of foreign investors from countries like China, Russia, France and Britain was testimony to the countryâs commitment to economic growth.
Cde Khaya Moyo, who is also the Minister of Economic Planning and Development said Zanu-PF was known for its people-oriented policies that could not be distorted.
âIt is a record that cuts across many decades from the days of the liberation struggle to the attainment of independence up to the education, land reform, indigenisation and now Zim-Asset,â he said.
âAnd it is a record we are proud of as a party. No other party in Zimbabwe and we do not mean this as an exaggeration; will be able to surpass Zanu-PFâs extraordinary record in this lifetime.
âThe MDC attempted rather miserably to introduce a JUICE programme which has since dried up and which failed dismally to get them the necessary support to be a party of Government. It is this record of failure which makes it all the more disturbing when the same party hires ghost analysts to discredit the decent efforts of our Government.â
Cde Khaya Moyo said the Zanu-PF Government would remain committed to the accelerated implementation of Zim-Asset and would not allow anything to distract it.
The Zanu-PF Government introduced Zim-Asset in 2013 after the July 31 harmonised elections spelling out how the party would fulfil its election promises.
