president mugabe meets rev jackson.jpgHead of State and Government and Commander-In-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, President Robert Mugabe met a delegation of American business people led by civil rights leader, Reverend Jesse Jackson on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly to discuss investment opportunities in Zimbabwe.

The business delegation told Zimbabwean journalists that it is looking at investment in the health, construction, tourism and the media and that it is visiting Zimbabwe next month.

Reverend Jackson said Zimbabwe’s political stability created a conductive investment climate and urged Zimbabweans to continue leading in many areas.

Zimbabwe has the highest literacy rate in Africa and it was the first African state to introduce reconciliation among former warring sides after independence.

The policy was replicated in South Africa, Namibia and other parts of the continent.

Before meeting Cde Mugabe in New York, Reverend Jesse Jackson had met Prime Minister, Morgan Tsvangirai twice in Chicago.

He would not reveal the subject of his meeting with Mr Tsvangirai.

Reverend Jackson however was not vocal on the issue of sanctions saying it is time to talk about them ad not to fight them out.
