President Mugabe has implored Zimbabweans to adopt a mindset that promotes confidence in their capabilities and skills. Addressing thousands of Zanu-PF supporters at his final star rally in Harare on Sunday, Cde Mugabe said colonialists deliberately conditioned many indigenous Zimbabweans to believe the white man was superior. He said locals must instead believe in themselves and realise that they will not fail to run key economic sectors given the skills and sound education they have acquired.

The Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment Programme seeks to make a cross section of Zimbabweans, including the youth, company owners and not just employees, he added.

“Muno zvainzi gold ndere Lonrho, Anglo-American nana Rio Tinto. They wanted us to benefit by way of labour and according to their economics. We must rewrite economics books our children learn. They were written to serve the purpose of colonialism. So, their economics must go and we must introduce our economics here.

“. . .Hezvi tinoda vadiki vedu vasimbaradzwe nokuti ndivo vachengeti venhaka dzedu. Mangwana, vakuru venhaka yanhasi vanenge vasisipo. Hatingavasiye vasina (nhaka). Ndokusaka takauya neindigenisation yakabatwa nava (Saviour) Kasukuwere.

“Our wealth is our wealth. We must own our natural resources. Our land belongs to us Zimbabweans. Zimbabwe’s land is an asset for Zimbabweans and must enrich Zimbabweans.

“If others want to have a share of our wealth, then they should come and join us not as masters, but as subordinates to us. Hatirambe. The main shareholding must be that of Zimbabweans. Isu tinenge takabata kukobvu, ivo vakabata kutete.”
