Zanu-PF MP- Zimbabwe ‘doomed without whites’

HARARE-  According to an outgoing member of parliament for Zimbabwe’s ruling Zanu-PF party has reportedly claimed that the southern African country cannot prosper “without the involvement of whites” in its “affairs”.

The report has quoted  Joseph Tshuma a former MP for Mpopoma Pelandaba,  “We are coming from the era of Robert Mugabe. An era which closed us out from the rest of the world. We began to live in a vacuum. That was the most dangerous thing that was ever experienced by this country other than the bombings during the liberation struggle,”

Tshuma said Mugabe was wrong to tell Tony Blair to, “keep your England and I’ll keep my Zimbabwe”.

“Yes, we kept our Zimbabwe but what kind of Zimbabwe did we keep? One thing that I have been made to understand and agree strongly whether painful or not, we cannot do away with that person called umkhiwa (white).”

Mugabe made frequent comments during his reign where he denounced the British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, he once said, “So Blair, keep your England and let me keep my Zimbabwe.”

President Emmerson Mnangagwa said his trying to revive the ailing economy in the country after taking over from Mugabe, “My government is committed to open Zimbabwe out to investment by building a free and transparent economy which benefits Zimbabweans and is welcoming to outsiders,” Mnangagwa was quoted as saying during his first state of the nation address.
