Anchor the economic growth trajectory

The Chronicle

Stephen Mpofu, Perspective

JUST when the satanic economic Siamese twins are about to be utterly defeated, the modern Robin Hoods are terrorizing the business world and sending false signals to potential investors overseas that Zimbabwe is not a safe country to sink their hard earned money.

Yes, it is not cheap propaganda from this communicologist to suggest that both illegal and satanic Western economic sanctions against the ruling Zanu-PF party and its government as punishment for having introduces land reform, and the equally diabolical, devil-inspired Covid-19 pandemic are about to become the annals of history, but this is not a recovery of our long-beleaguered economy, but its trajectory of growth is intensifying so that it becomes imperative for all absolute Zimbabwean patriots to unite and celebrate the new economic upsurge as one people, regardless of differing political beliefs, in this beautiful house for the construction of which and the continued safety of all of us its inhabitants, many valiant sons and daughters of the soil have paid the price with their precious lives.

Our Second Republic Head of State, President Emmerson Mnangagwa, confirmed a few days ago that economic recovery is now all but a thing of the past, but growth is now on track and there are many activities across the country, such as building dams, improving roads. , construction of boreholes providing better housing for all etc confirm that the dark cloud that had long engulfed our homeland, thanks to imperialists and racists who did not want to see black people enjoy peace, stability and economic growth like them, has all but lifted to give way to a bright economic sun for our nation to move boldly into a brave new future without looking back.

But now look at what appears to be an antidote to the projected growth of the economy and with it an improvement in the social welfare of our people.

The disturbing cases of armed robbers intercepting cash in transit to banks in our cities is an example of this here and something that must necessarily come to an end YESTERDAY.

The wide publicity in newspapers and on the radio that accompanies these heinous acts transcends international borders with obvious impact on potential foreign investors, many of whom are making straight lines to Zimbabwe to work with our government in the development of our country and who are therefore likely to be terrified by the advertisement in question to the extent that some, if not most of them, might change their minds about exposing their hard-earned money to self-proclaimed, modern Robin Hoods lurking in the streets for any vehicle bringing money to the banks but without any consideration for the poor – as the legendary outlaw did – who will benefit from the money invested if not diverted.

But why don’t companies transferring large sums of money to banks deploy armed military escorts just for the short time needed to move money from one place to another in a city?

Surely the fees paid for the service offered must be negligent compared to the total loss of the huge sums of money snatched up while moving them to be kept safe before further investment takes place to grow the economy?

Second, armed robbers must work with corporate employees who themselves must benefit from the loot; otherwise, how could criminals know where, how and when the money is transferred from one place to another?

Which also suggests that businesses that earn and keep large sums of money before they are wired must have detectives on staff to monitor the conduct of fellow cash handlers who may be self-employed thieves for some reason. reward – to supplement their meager wages – on moving the money from place to place for the criminals to seize the vehicles containing the money?

More importantly, legislators may wish to enact illegal penalties amounting to life imprisonment, or even capital punishment, for crimes that harm our nation’s economic growth and social well-being.

Add to this the corruption of the executives of public institutions, including local authorities as well as those of private institutions, because any money defrauded would have been made for the total improvement of the well-being of families as well as collectively of our nation.

Above all, the imperialist minions, whether they are politicians eager to be hoisted to power by their masters, the country to go to the dogs, or inverted patriots eager only to inflate their bellies, must know that no nation foreign but that WE ALONE, ourselves as citizens of this country, are, in the final analysis, determining whether our country goes to the dogs or succeeds politically, economically and socially.

There can never exist in a single nation two or three distinct and economically or politically successful destinies without the growth of a single country resulting from the collective contributions of its own people.

Any other belief is nothing but a fallacy on which political betrayals tend to ride like their horse.
