Come 2023 this country goes to the polls. This election will decide the future direction of our nation and regions for generations to come. Our jobs, homes, and living standards, our children’s education, our heritage, our health system, how we care for our vulnerable and our place in the world will be all determined by the vote in 2023. Never before has your vote mattered so much. Zimbabwe has been given a lifeline by ED and he deserves a chance to finish what he has started.
President Emmerson deserves more than 5million votes from the Zimbabwean electorate. He has earned these votes through his visionary leadership and economic acumen.
ED has improved the various facets of our social life by improving the living standards of many Zimbabwe through the command agriculture program and the legitimation / revamping of the mining sector.
The world believes that only ZANU PF has the policies that will protect and advance the lives of ordinary people. Only ED will invest in skills and training. Only ED will build the homes so urgently needed. Only ED can be trusted with our children’s education. Only ED can make work in this country pay. In less than thirty six months the face of Zimbabwe has changed for better. The civil servants had their pay increased and nurses had their grievances solved.
From 2018 up to this time it was more than business as usual, economic transformation programs were implemented within the set deadlines, we now have our own currency competing on the global market through the auction system ( determined by the economic spectrum in the global south).
Zanu-PF has implemented almost 85% of what has been promised in its 2018 manifesto. Unlike the Chamisa MDC Alliance which promised airports and unrealistic spaghetti roads to the electorate Zanu-PF is currently refurbishing the Harare beitbridge highway, the Harare -Plumtree road is complete, Harare Mutare road is progressing fast.
It is not a secret that MDC-T rule hurts working communities. We also know that under MDC-T the country will be given back to the colonisers. The lies Chamisa has been making will not make working people get ahead.
In 2023 there are many great reasons to vote ED. These will make a real difference to our nation and our future. ED promises real investment in skills and training, he has taken the country back to its glory; it only needs your vote to see him through.
With industrialization as its priority Zanu-PF has got the manpower, the government under the divine guidance of President Emmerson Mnangagwa,has educated and trained Zimbabweans through a vibrant education system to transform and revamp our industries, what is now needed are more investors to turn around the economy.
In 2018 ED promised the Zimbabwean populace that this time it will be more economics and less politics, ED has put an end to fuel, food and foreign currency shortages.
ED will grow our economy, investing in skills and infrastructure through a national investment bank. Already investors are flocking into Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe will be a jewel again. The events of the past 38 years cannot be visited in ED. Real change has been witnessed. ZANU PF is fully transformed and it has moved on. Do not be held down by the past.
Above all the Zimbabwean government under the guidance of Cde Emmerson Mnangagwa has converged both the mining and agricultural sector to create a sustainable pro-poor development that will lay ground for the creation of a middle income economy by 2030.
Mining together with agriculture are the centrepieces of our economy with potential to generate growth spurts across sectors and re-egnite the much needed economic recovery.
Under ED work will pay.
ED has brought in work and self-respect in the labour market. Already industry is beginning to work. Our railway is starting to come to life. Only ED can be trusted with the health revolution. No more will nurses be so poor that they turn to South Africa. Every civil servant will be appreciated and the country will reward the hard working.
ED has brought a better chance of a better home; he has delivered on that promise and will indeed achieve this.
The mushrooming of unregulated expensive colleges will be a thing of the past. Zimbabwe will be the brains of Africa again. This is not only a promise it is a reality.
Under ED Zimbabwe will invest in new forms of energy to tackle climate change, create the well-paid decent jobs of tomorrow – and keep energy bills low. He will make it a priority to have solar system in every village.
ED is fixing our broken economy before the new dispensation, Zimbabwean living standards had slumped. Among African economies, only Zimbabwe had suffered a harder hit. ED will tackle the low wage, low skill economy the past had created, to build a stronger economy that works for the many, not the few.
To achieve this ED needs your vote. He has started and needs to continue. Open your eyes and allow continuity. Zimbabwe has a chance to be better.
ED says we have suffered enough now it’s the time to enjoy the fruits of our land. MDC-T promises to reverse the gains of freedom, but you are the only one to stop such lunacy. Vote ED.
ED must be allowed to finish the progress he has introduced to us he deserves more than five million votes.
