Farai Dziva|War veterans have blasted some unscrupulous businesspeople who are sabotaging economic revival efforts in a bid to soil Emmerson Mnangagwa’ s image.
Douglas Mahiya has described the hiking of prices as pure sabotage.
“The unjustified bread price increase is clearly a political weapon by the baking cartel. This is clearly a calculated move meant to anger the public and make them to revolt against the constitutionally elected Government.”
“The move is also meant to sabotage President Mnangagwa’s Vision 2030 and as war veterans we will stand to defend the economic programmes by our President.”
“We strongly condemn this profiteering habit by bakers and we urge them to desist from the habit of making unjustified profits at the expense of the poor.”
Mahiya said ZNLWVA will stand with the people and make sure the unjustified profiteering will not succeed.
“We will make sure this cartel bites the dust,” he said. “This is to ensure that the Zimbabwe revolution we fought heroically as young people thrives and succeeds. The Vision 2030 and goal of a middle income economy will be pursued with unremitting vigour.”
Mahiya called on Government to take stern measures to ensure the protection of citizens.
“We call upon the Ministers of Industry, Finance and Justice to take drastic and decisive measures to deal with these cartels. All initiatives must be put in place to ensure that all basics are affordable to everyone,” he said.
