This is a MUST watch video – if you are indeed interested in investing in Zimbabwe. Trevor Ncube was at this forum and he had very positive things to say about the 3 leaders. I can now see why.
I watched the Dar es Salaam WEF video again, clicked fast forward to the bits that I particularly enjoyed or was interested in watching again. I had to watch Shingi Munyeza’s speech and the young ‘Global Change Maker’ guy (I forget his name) speak again. Even after a few days since I initially watched this YouTube video I am still very excited about the prospects of our beloved Zimbabwe. I love my country! The ZimBizForums work we do daily has ensured that we are closer to the ground than before and yet in the midst of the ever changing Zimbabwean business and political climate, the media still manages to paint this rather bleak reality – TYPICAL! Tsk! I continue to read all the information that comes my way only paying real attention to articles that seem less biased than most (and those are hard to come by most days). Some of these newspapers have their own agenda often openly supporting this party or the next. I have often said that Zimbabwe and indeed the Zimbabwean people themselves are bent on politicising almost every situation even when there is simply no need to do this. Quite often (literally speaking here), some things simply don’t need to find themselves aligned to politics at all. We still have refugees based in South Africa and other such challenges we desperately need to address yet… I often feel like these issues don’t make it into the mainstream news arena simply because we (the people) focus most of our attention on who is the GNU and who’s controlling what this week? Even before this WEF in Tanzania, the media ran articles on the fact that all 3 political leaders were travelling separately to Dar es Salaam- never mind the fact that all 3 were actually attending this event together! That to me was the key!
Still, I am hopefully. Coalition governments are never easy and not ideal. Zimbabwe and Kenya have both illustrated that thus far. The UK is just about to find out how difficult it is to work with other parties with different agendas and direction.
We are indeed living in interesting times and once again the struggle continues…
