Zimbabwe is blessed- ambassador

Outgoing Japanese ambassador to Zimbabwe Yonezo Fukuda said Zimbabwe was blessed because it has vast natural resources and an educated human capital base. “The future of Zimbabwe is bright because you have a lot of resources and good weather. Human capital is very educated and if they come back to work together, there is a big possibility to develop.” A recent report said that Zimbabweans in the diaspora were getting increasingly disillusioned by politics and were turning to business. The report said Zimbabweans were remitting about £50 million a year to Zimbabwe, one fifth of it from the United Kingdom alone. The country is currently going through a liquidity crisis. The ruling Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front has incorporated the diaspora in its economic blueprint but Zimbabweans living abroad were sceptical about this with some asking why the party wanted their money but not their vote.
