Addressing delegates at the 21st February Movement celebrations in Harare, Cde Mugabe said it is high time government takes an audit of foreign owned companies who are raking in billions of dollars while contributing nothing to the country’s revenue.

President  Mugabe cited Zimplants and other gold mines as examples.

He called on the Minister of Youth Development, Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment, Cde Saviour Kasukuwere to work on making sure that the errant companies are indigenised as a matter of urgency.

In a related development, Cde Mugabe told delegates that government will this week launch an Anti-Sanctions Campaign that is aimed at promoting awareness to Zimbabweans that problems affecting them are a result of the illegal sanctions that were imposed by the British, American and their western allies to affect regime change on a constitutionally elected government.
