Hon. Mwonzora calls for a relook at the Indigenisation Act
for Democratic Change (MDC)
October 26, 2011
It is impossible to achieve economic growth or poverty alleviation
in Zimbabwe if the country adopts the current indigenisation policy
in its form, Hon, Douglas Mwonzora, the MDC national spokesperson
said this during a public debate organised by the Public Policy
Institute of Zimbabwe in Harare yesterday.
He said the
implementation of the Indigenisation
and Economic Empowerment Act was marred by confusion, policy
conflict, political patronage and clientism that disturbed the nobility
of the indigenisation exercise.
Kasukuwere has made it clear who the beneficiaries of this indigenisation
programme is, because according to Kasukuwere, the MDC is not interested,"
is the fallacy; the people of Zimbabwe are not necessarily Zanu
PF, neither are they necessarily MDC. There are people who do not
subscribe to these political parties.
we go to the election of 2008 where two million people voted, prima
facie, one would say these are interested in politics, what of the
nine million who are there? What plans does Kasukuwere have for
them?" Hon. Mwonzora said.
the genuineness through which the programme was being conducted
and whether it is meant to create a strong economy.
said there is need for a legal framework that protects property
rights to allow for a conducive environment for economic growth.
