Zim must stand on its own feet

Posted: 28/01/2011 in Economy, Politics

I AM a strong proponent of the
Zimbabwe brand and have
experienced her last 34 years of
development both from within
and without .
I am now based in South Africa
and Finance minister Tendai
Biti’ s call to the international
community to become pro
rather than reactive to calls for
some input . Africa on a broad
scale still relies on both direct
and indirect international
community support and
investment .
There are thousands of UN
troops in place in various
countries including the Ivory
Coast, there are numerous
NGOs and other support
mechanisms in place within
African countries which are all
supplied and financed by the
international community. My
question is when will Africa
stand on its own two feet?
When will the political,
economic and social prowess of
Zimbabwe be realised?
It is her responsibility and hers
alone to ensure her
development. We should
appreciate the very real and
difficult challenges Zimbabwe is
under but also know we have to
stand on our own two feet.
