”WHETHER the weather – whatever weather – be good or bad, Zimbabwe CAN – and WILL face the weather”, like it or not.
The above prudent philosophy must drive the Third Republic’s global engagement and re-engagement exercise; otherwise, it would be foolish for any Zimbabwean, let alone our Head of State, President Emmerson Mnangagwa, to have, as he did during his recent visit to America, by wowing the billionaires and fund managers of a country that along with its Western allies slapped an illegal economic yoke on our country in a failed attempt to stifle and kill the Zanu-PF government as capital punishment for introducing the program of agrarian reform two decades ago – to help us revive our economy.
[The financial tycoons are due to arrive in Zimbabwe in the middle of next month as indispensable in returning our economy back to an even keel.]
What falls to local businesses as well as to all Zimbabweans, including the political minions of Western imperialism who might believe that American businessmen are coming to pull the rug out from under them and, in doing so, prevent them from fight his way to power at all times. cost, including economic detriment or other benefits to those who blindly support them.
Certain members of the European Economic Community have already made known their decision to henceforth do business with Zimbabwe, which obviously qualifies them to be considered and co-operated by all Zimbabweans as indispensable partners in the revival of the economic growth of our mother country.
If our government’s global re-engagement continues with unwavering fearlessness, we can expect more countries to emerge from the iniquitous and satanic Western economic stable designed to politically and economically isolate Zimbabwe from the rest of the global village.
Currently, Zimbabwe is recruiting medical personnel – doctors and health technologists from Cuba – a country that has survived decades of US economic and political sanctions – can only indicate that Zimbabwe’s economic recovery is moving towards greater momentum with an indispensable partnership between our country and Cuba.
As things stand Havana is widely sought after around the world as a bride for marriage development and Zimbabwe could not have looked in a better direction for much needed partnership in reviving our economy. .
What’s more, a chorus of African heads of state calling for the lifting of sanctions that are hampering economic recovery and growth should see other countries line up as indispensable partners in that country’s development, while others nations of our continent and elsewhere are also preparing to nibble on its fruits. of Zimbabwe’s economic growth.
Above all, however, much-needed partnerships must trickle down to Zimbabweans as absolute patriots so that any outside assistance augments all that we do as citizens of this country to better the lot of our people, whether they are members of a ruling party or an opposition political organization. since in the final analysis, we are all Zimbabweans eager to keep soul and flesh together as a collective national community.
This therefore means that no one belonging to a party pursuing an opposition political ideology should, so to speak, knock down rivals already ahead on the scoresheet to prevent them from scoring more goals on the field of play. , because such a barbaric action deprives everyone of the benefits of the economy. growth and its main health and social benefits in the final analysis.
Such political opposition is totally superfluous.
And, anyway, those who beat others down to prevent them from scoring goals will not themselves smile to the cheers of their supporters if the reverse is done to them.
The message encoded in this speech is that indispensable partnerships are the cornerstone of national development and the survival of nations and as such our own government must be seen by all of us, citizens, inverted patriots or not, as THE PARTNER essential for development. so that everyone will rally in his support as our country enters, politically, economically and socially, into a brave new future for each of its citizens and other residents.
What this suggests, then, is that everyone, both individuals and communities, must rally behind government support for community or national projects initiated to succeed for the benefit of all.
At the community level, for example, vigilante groups in the form of neighborhood watch committees should be introduced, where they do not exist, to join forces with law enforcement in eradicating illegal activities. crimes such as armed robbery, burglary, etc. etc.
Workers must also become indispensable partners of their employers, whether private or public, by eradicating corruption, looting, money laundering, among other iniquitous acts that retard the economic and social growth of the company and of the nation.
Therefore, in this communologist’s humble understanding, indispensable partnerships are potentially the alpha and omega of most human frailties, much in the same way that God’s mercy is superior to human frailties and endures. for all time.
