The economic future of Zimbabwe is very promising despite the illegal sanctions imposed on the country by the West, visiting Tanzanian People’s Defence Forces Chief, General Davis Adolf Mwamunyange has said.In an interview with The Herald after touring Mbada Diamonds mining operations at Chiadzwa in Marange and the Chisumbanje Ethanol Plant on Wednesday, Gen Mwamunyange said Zimbabwe was a country positively moving forward.

“The country is moving forward inspite of the sanctions. The social-economic environment is different from the perception people have outside the country.

“Zimbabwe is moving forward. It is a very good country to live in with a huge economic potential,” he said.

Gen Mwamunyange was impressed by developments at the Chisumbanje ethanol plant and at Mbada Diamonds, especially the fact that these are indigenous companies.

Speaking after touring the ethanol plant, he said: “I am really amazed. This is a good and inspiring project. It augurs well with the country’s economic and social development. The economic future of Zimbabwe looks very brilliant and very promising.”

Green Fuel that runs the Chisumbanje Ethanol Plant is a joint venture company between the Agricultural Rural Development Authority (Arda), Macdom Investments and Rating.

Gen Mwamunyange applauded Zimbabweans for their vision saying indigenous people were increasingly owning the economy.

He also commended Mbada Diamonds for operating a well organised mine at Chiadzwa.

“It is a well managed place and I am very much impressed by the diamond mining operations. The workers are conversant with their job. Regarding the investment that has been made by the company, it is quite commendable and enormous,” he said.
