He urged the nation to embrace the new dispensation to ensure sustainable economic growth that will develop the country.
“My Government is presently in a phase of transition which is geared to put our country back on the rails of development. In our politics, economy and society in general, our country has, been stuck in the old way of doing things.
“This has held us back as a nation for too long and we must embrace the new, to ensure sustainable economic growth that will develop our country and speedily improve the standard of living of all people,” he said.
President Mnangagwa said the road to recovery will be bumpy but with resilience and unity, together will enjoy the fruits as a country.
Meanwhile, President Mnangagwa has left the country for South Africa where he will attend the swearing-in ceremony of Cyril Ramaphosa as that country’s president on Saturday.
