Dr Gideon Gono, the architect of Zimbabwe’s hyperinflation and former Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) Governor, says the newly sworn president, Emmerson Mnangagwa will shock the world by taking the country from the current economic turmoil to a global powerhouse.
Dr Gono was speaking to 263Chat after Mnangagwa’s inauguration ceremony at the National Sports Stadium in Harare.
He lauded Mnangagwa’s inaugural speech saying it carried so much hope for the nation, calling for collective efforts from citizens towards rebuilding the nation.
“The president’s speech was pregnant with new ideas which promote national cohesion, one which encourages foreign direct investment and pulls every citizen in one direction.
“This is what the country needs and I can assure you that the new president will surprise the world through his acumen-ship in the business sector. What is needed is the right mindset that can take the country to greater heights again.
“If his speech is anything to go by, then he will give the country a sense of direction that it has been lacking for long time,” said Gono, who was the Central Bank Governor during the worst turn of the economy.
