HARARE – Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) leader Nelson Chamisa has said his party will ensure tackling corruption is a priority as part of measures to restore economic stability in the country when he assumes power.
He made the revelations in a Twitter thread adding that his party will also introduce policies to help uphold the rule of law.
“The citizens government will come up with a policy framework and turnaround strategy, which among others includes the following, develop demand driven policies informed by inclusive policies and inclusive politics anchored upon an inclusive dialogue with all political actors, economic players, labour, business, civil society and academia with a view to build a new consensus by-in,” said Chamisa in a tweet.
“Our policies will be predictable, consistent and guarantee certainty — this will help citizens, economic agents, workers, business and investors to plan with certainty.
“The corrupt will be an endangered species [and] extinct. We will eliminate corruption, enforce rule of law, foster political tolerance, constitutionalism and respect of property rights, which, combined, are critical ingredients required to attract investment, savings and production,” he said.
Chamisa promised to support entrepreneurship which he believes will unlock Zimbabwe’s hidden potential.
“We will make Zimbabwe an entrepreneurial society – new industries, new factories and new companies and new sectors and employing more. We will embark on radical central bank reforms on the back of wide consultation with bankers, business and labour. We will start with full dollarisation and then create a conducive environment and the right confidence levels for the adoption of our local currency,” he said.
