Youths at tertiary institutions have been urged to transform knowledge gained into projects that will transform Zimbabwe’s economy.

Special Advisor to the President, Cde Christopher Mutsvangwa who was speaking to students at Mutare Teachers College said Zimbabwe has the potential to dominate global markets using knowledge gained from tertiary institutions.

“We will produce made in Zimbabwe goods of high quality to the global market. There is nothing that will stop us from having made in Zimbabwe goods in Tel Aviv, Mumbai and Dubai. We will produce excess goods that will be sold globally and there is no stopping us in moving towards that goal,” he said.

As youths, our support in the 2018 elections is with President Emmerson Mnangagwa as he has shown that his vision for the country is in line with that of the youths said the Zimbabwe Congress of Students’ Union president, Mr Takudzwa Gambiza.

“As ZICOSU we have taken a stand that our vote is with President Emmerson Mnangagwa as he has shown that he has the youths as part of his vision to develop the country. This country has a history and it will be through intergenerational consensus that we can move forward,” said Mr Gambuiza.

Government has made deliberate attempts through various policy initiatives to ensure that there is value addition as well as beneficiation to unlock the true value of the country’s resources.
