The National Business Council of Zimbabwe (NBCZ) has joined the rest of the country in commemorating the Heroes Day this Monday, urging the nation to shift focus from politics to economics.

NBCZ President, Mr Langton Mabhanga said it is important for business to be involved in national events as this creates a shared vision for Zimbabweans which should be used to build a solid economy.

He said it is now imperative to sustain the momentum created by the new dispensation by focusing on bread and butter issues, and putting aside politics.

Mr Mabhanga also reiterated the urgent need for Zimbabweans to unite for the purpose of rebuilding the economy that has been facing a number of challenges for many years.
