Dramatic Policy Shift Needed to Move Zim Forward

THE Governance Framework and Systems put in place by a Zanu PF government under President Robert Mugabe’s leadership has largely proved ineffective as evidenced by policy fissures.

Since the 1990s, adoption of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank and European Union (EU) economic programs left the nation in economic, social and political quagmires, resulting in de-industrialisation, loss of income and retrenchments as companies realigned themselves.

These, among the events that unfolded politically, socially and economically, triggered social unrest in Zimbabwe, including the emergency of anti-government movements, establishment of the MDC as an alternative political party.

In a bid to establish sanity within State structures, the government moved in to thwart any real and perceived anti-government activities, leading to violation of human rights through torture, murder and imprisonment of opposition voices.

Among the social ills, corruption epitomises the height of bad governance.

All the proceedings, thereafter hitherto, have proved futile, leaving citizens, opposition movements and government desperate.

And now, in the face of elections in 2018, calls are very distinct for whoever comes into office, whether from within Zanu PF or opposition camps, to shift policies and re-align them across sectors so that they are made relevant to the aspirations of the people..

Zanu PF initiatives such as Statutory Instrument 64/2016, AIPPA, POSA, indigenisation and Employment Creation, the principles of separation of powers, role of security sectors and promotion of International Bilateral Relations; will have to be reviewed.

The controversial land policy cannot be ignored in that quandary as agriculture, mining and tourism remain pillars to the contemporary and future backbone of the country.

The new government will need to reform and depoliticise all government institutions especially the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, so as to accord citizens their constitutional rights to democracy. The Civil Aviation, Air Zimbabwe, National Railways and Zinara remain critical to Zimbabwe’s economic recovery as goods and people need to move, conduct businesses and concurrently generate revenue for the State.

The National Railways is destroyed, yet it is the economic vein for ferrying of bulky goods and commodities that come by sea through countries like Mozambique.

The country’s education sector has been defaced by confusion arising through promulgation of unpopular and non-relevant policies by the Ministry.

The industrial sector cannot be spared, production has to be revived, machines and plants have to be rejuvenated, foreign currency has to start flowing in from exports, unemployment has to be fought head on and the  vendor population has to dwindle as people get absorbed into productive sectors.

Dramatic Policy Shift has to be undertaken to get Zimbabwe working again.
