EEG pushes for strengthened financial capacitation of Zimbabweans

By Davison Vandira

THE recently founded Economic Empowerment Group (EEG), has castigated rampant acts of financial indiscipline being experienced in the country that are threatening to derail the progress that the Second Republic has registered since inception.

The general purchasing power to income of the majority of Zimbabweans who access their earnings in the local currency is at the mercy of economic terrorists packaged as financial services players, retailers and manufacturers, who are causing untold suffering to the generality of Zimbabweans by wantonly and without economic basis influencing exchange rate instability.

It is against this background that the Economic Empowerment Group EEG during its national executive meeting came guns blazing towards economic saboteurs.

Mr Scott Sakupwanya, one of the founding members of the lobby group highlighted the need to continue uplifting marginalised communities to ensure full realisation of Vision 2030.

As an economic empowerment lobby group, we are very disheartened by the level of sabotage that is happening across the entire economy which is hampering economic progress despite the fact that the government, led by his Excellency President Emmerson Mnangagwa is a listening administration that is open and is always ready to support the citizenry,” he said.

The economic lobby group’s Vice president, Ms Saliwe Njolomole spoke on the need for everyone to safeguard the interests of the economy.

“Going forward, our efforts will be streamlined towards ensuring there is patriotism in the actions of economic agents and we envisage a situation where we pride ourselves in ethical operations and drive our economy towards the objectives that President Mnangagwa has set,” said Njomole.

World over, economic growth and sustainable development have a positive co-relation with prudent economic operations.
