Vice President Constantino Chiwenga says it will no longer be business as usual for the Cdes who will be joining the new government as it moves with speed to implement the programmes that were being sold by the ruling party during its campaigns in the harmonised elections.
He was speaking to local and international journalists on his immediate task, soon after the swearing in ceremony at State House in Harare today.
Vice President Chiwenga told the media that while the new dispensation hit the ground running first time, they will maintain the speed with a vision of rebuilding the economy and improving the socio-economic status of the people.
The vice president compared the speed and pace needed with the Greek mythology figure of the ancient phydippedis.
He warned civil servants, those who will be selected into cabinet and others who are expected to deliver the vision of economic construction and socio-economic upliftment that they will be expected to do as determined and not as they wish.
He said the private sector is also expected to contribute towards the development efforts through close interaction with government.
He said the agric show indaba held in the capital on Wednesday is a clear demonstration of how government and the private sector can help each other.
Vice President Kembo Mohadi said industrialisation of the country is top priority and with highly educated and skilled manpower, Zimbabwe can realise its vision for economic development and industrialisation.
He said Zimbabwe is on a drive to attract investors some of whom came to observe the elections, to provide the required support for industrialisation.
The swearing in of the two vice presidents is step towards the formation of the new government after the 30 July harmonised elections.
