Let unity cascade to all sectors of society: Minister Muswere

Story by ZBC News Reporter

The minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Dr Jenfan Muswere has called on Zimbabweans to cherish the unity brought about by the historic Unity Accord in order to foster development.

In his Unity Day commemoration message, Dr Muswere said Zimbabwe enjoys peace and tranquility owing to the founding state-making processes underpinned on a common struggle for liberation, unity equality and national development.

“Therefore, the celebration of Unity Day is reflective of the monumental journey we have travelled together in nation-building. Unity compels us to transcend ethnic, race, gender, class and other superficial binaries. 
“It must be underscored that the 22nd of December is an important part of our national calendar as it marks the signing of the Unity Accord in 1987,” he said.

He added, “The Unity Accord was part of a long-lasting initiative to unite the people of Zimbabwe and to bring harmony to the nationalist formations of our armed struggle.”

He said under the Second Republic, the values of the Unity Accord have been reinforced through various people-centred policy interventions, institutions and development initiatives spearheaded by President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

“The national philosophy “Nyika Inovaka Nevene Vayo/Ilizwe Lakhiwa Ngabanikazi Balo”; The policy architecture anchored on “Leaving No One and No Place Behind”; The introduction of the Transitional Stabilisation Programme (TSP) for macro-economic stability; The National Development Strategy 1 for inclusive economic growth by 2030; Infrastructure Development in all provinces; Road Construction and rehabilitation across all provinces; The implementation of the Intwasa/Pfumbvudza Programme in all provinces to promote increased agricultural productivity; Dam Construction in all provinces; Establishment of the National Peace and Reconciliation Commission; Creation of the Political Actors Dialogue; and Establishment of the Matabeleland Collective Organ,” he noted.

He also said the Traditional Leaders Organ has also been strengthened in terms of its mandate of promoting social cohesion and integration. 

“All these initiatives are evident of the President adherence to the objectives of the liberation struggle, the ethos of nationalism and national development.
“As we all draw a leaf from the national inclusive model by the Head of State and Government, we must ensure that unity cascades to all levels of society.”
