The Ninth Parliament should focus on legislation that makes the country an attractive investment destination to achieve its vision of attaining a middle-income economy by 2030, legislators who took their oaths of office yesterday said.
Clerk of Parliament Mr Kennedy Chokuda presided over the swearing-in of Parliamentarians from the National Assembly and Senate.
Zanu-PF secretary for Information and Publicity and Senator for Matabeleland South Simon Khaya Moyo said: “The Government is a product of the party and it is the party which lays down the roadmap on how we should perform vis-a-vis the people’s expectations. That also originates from the manifesto that embodies all that the people said and we believe those who are serious about the mandate of the people must fulfil it.”
Sen Khaya Moyo said time to sleep was over. It was time for delivery.
“It is time for less talking, less politicking and for serious delivery. It is time for people to be seen to be working to fulfil people’s expectations in terms of economic emancipation.
“We must avoid sleeping in Parliament because this is not a place to sleep. They must go somewhere else if they want to sleep.
“Those who come to snore in Parliament must know that snoring is never on the Order Paper.
“They must know they are here to fulfil the aspirations of the people. They must not be ‘missing persons’ but members of Parliament,” he said.
Zvimba West legislator and Zanu-PF Mashonaland West chairman Cde Ziyambi Ziyambi said he expected debate to centre on the economy.
