PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa says targets set under the National Development Strategy One (NDS1) will be achieved, focusing on improving livelihoods.

President Mnangagwa, who embarks on another five-year term after winning the August 23 election, has assured the nation that his government will consolidate gains achieved through inclusive development to improve people’s lives in line with the objectives of an upper middle-income society by 2030.

“Only last week, I made a tour of duty in Buhera District, Manicaland Province and at the Zimbabwe Agricultural Show. I was pleased to note the people centred on life-transforming projects programmes and activities unfolding as we journey towards Vision 2030.

“Again, I reiterate that we are hitting the ground running guided by our development philosophy ‘Nyika inovakwa nevene vayo, ilizwe lakhiwa ngabanikazi balo’. The targets we set for ourselves sector by sector, institution by institution and broadly under the national development strategy as well as Vision 2030 will be realised,” he said.

The Head of State pointed out the need for the country to remain peaceful, stressing that peace is a prerequisite for development.

He added, “Our revolutionary party ZANU PF and the government will continue to safeguard the prevailing conducive democratic, socio-economic and peaceful political conditions. It is upon this atmosphere of unity, peace, love and harmony that the accelerated modernisation, industrialisation and growth of our economy will continue to be founded.”

President Mnangagwa also said his open-door policy remains in place.

“To our stakeholders from across the public and private sectors, I assure you that my government will continue implementing conducive policies that are anchored on greater collaboration and support. The open-door policy and culture of dialogue that characterised the first term of my presidency will remain the norm. Zimbabwe is open for business,” the President reiterated.

He also expressed gratitude to the First Lady Dr Auxillia Mnangagwa for her support in national development.

“I want to extend my gratitude to my dear wife, Amai Mnangagwa, the family and the Angel of Hope Foundation for their unwavering support. You continue to be a reliable partner in our national quest to deliver on the aspects of agriculture and food systems, health, culture, training and human capital development,” he said.

The country now awaits the appointment of a new cabinet after President Mnangagwa’s inauguration yesterday.
