Mnangagwa says let’s talk to each other not about each other


President Emmerson Mnangagwa today said Zimbabweans should shun the culture of militancy, disharmony and demonstrations but should instead talk to each other.

Speaking at the official launch of the Tripartite Negotiating Forum Act which is aimed at paving way for talks between the three key players in the economy- government, business and labour- Mnangagwa said: “Most problems will disappear if people talk to each other more instead of talking about each other more.”

The President said the TNF was a transparent platform for crucial dialogue.

“We must develop greater understanding of each other’s perspectives,” he said.

“Different positions must be permissible within our country, however, these must never divide us or result in conflict.

“Violence must never be used as a tool to gain temporary advantage at the expense of the people we must serve and protect.

“Let us esteem collaboration instead of confrontation and build pragmatic, flexible and harmonious relationships for win-win outcomes.

“We are kith and kin, one nation and one people.”

Mnangagwa is battling to keep the country afloat with prices skyrocketing every day as the local currency continues to tumble on the black-market.

The government has accused cartels for this.

“With unjustified price increases affecting all, we are demanding a stronger and more responsive social dialogue, protecting both our workers and our reforming economy,” Mnangagwa said.

“Zimbabwe will only be truly open for business when collaboration is put ahead of confrontation.”
