Malawi praises Zimbabwe for developing against all odds

Story by Bruce Chahwanda, Political Editor

MALAWI has praised Zimbabwe’s homegrown strategies which are yielding positive results despite the existence of illegal economic sanctions imposed on the country by the West.

After the inauguration of President Emmerson Mnangagwa for a new five-year term, invited delegates are bidding farewell after witnessing Zimbabwe’s peaceful plebiscite.

This Wednesday, a Malawian delegation led by Minister of Homeland Security Dr Kenneth Zikhale Reeves Ng’oma paid a courtesy call on President Mnangagwa at State House where they appreciated the developmental thrust that Zimbabwe has adopted to transform people’s livelihoods.

“I was delegated to see the inauguration ceremony of His Excellency President Emmerson Mnangagwa, which was so exciting and we are very proud of what happened in Zimbabwe because of all odds, you are now the leading African country that has fought the West and managed to survive even in times of sanctions.

“This is a very good example that you have empowered your people to do all the developmental issues which we all thought were meant for foreign companies. Zimbabwe has developed and it is now a food basket for Africa, something we are admiring and we want Malawi to emulate such examples. As such, we want to work along with Zimbabwe to ensure that we also grow and develop our economy,” he said.

Turning to the August 23 General Elections, Dr Ng’oma commended the country for holding a peaceful election under difficult conditions of illegal economic sanctions.

“We appreciate the manner in which you are fixing your economy and we are borrowing some of the strategies you are doing. We hope in future we will be talking at the same level. We are grateful for having seen Presidential and Harmonised which are peaceful, peaceful than ever. We never thought Zimbabwe would have such a peaceful election in an environment where there are sanctions and this is great,” he said.

Under the Second Republic, Zimbabwe is slowly retaining its bread basket status in the region after recording grain surplus, with wheat exports set to begin in earnest this year.
