ZIMBABWE People First leader Dr Joice Mujuru says she will resuscitate Zimbabwe's collapsed economy.

“The problem of Zimbabwe will not be solved by continuous borrowing but by the resuscitation of the productive sector of the country. The only way this can happen is if we restore the relations with the countries which we fought with. We have to resuscitate relations we once had with all these people who we clashed with over the years. We must ask ourselves why our investors are running away from us and solve these very reasons,” she said at yesterday's Bulawayo rally.

Dr Mujuru also said she was being haunted by the ghost of the late Vice-President Dr Joshua Nkomo. She was at pains to explain her relationship with Dr Nkomo, claiming she had at no point denigrated the national hero. In 1997, while still Information, Posts and Telecommunications Minister, Dr Mujuru said VP Nkomo was senile after he instructed that she issue Econet with a mobile phone licence.

“Dr Nkomo is ageing and doesn’t always understand and remember things as well as he used to,” she said.

 “I know a lot of questions have been raised on why Amai Mujuru is launching these rallies in Bulawayo, about Amai Mujuru denigrating Dr Nkomo. I think that is just politicking which should not be used at any platform,” she said.

She talked about her background as a minister appointed by President Mugabe, and another 10 as his deputy.

“As I explained earlier, I came from the war as a young 25-year-old and was thrust in various Cabinet positions. The little education which I had had also vanished so you can all imagine my position. You must all note that there are some people who would take advantage of some situations, of which I believe I was a victim,” she said.
