New Year Address by President Emmerson Mnangagwa
Fellow Zimbabweans,whether at home or abroad, I would like to wish you and your families a very prosperous 2018. I also wish you good health, joy, peace and happiness. The New Year will undoubtedly have immense opportunities and its full share of challenges. But if we remain united as one people, nothing is insurmountable. Let us resolve to collectively work hard for the betterment of our country. Let us strive more than ever before to be united in all our endeavours. “For it is indeed good and pleasant when God’s people live together in unity and harmony.” (Psalms 133v1)
Government will continue to work tirelessly to create a peaceful and stable political and social-economic environment which will enable us to be a prosperous nation and to realise our full potential.
2018 shall be the year of all Zimbabweans.
2018 shall be the year of progress.
2018 shall be the year of credible, free and fair elections.
As we enter into the New Year, I commit to continue to being a listening and responsive President. I urge you fellow Zimbabweans to engage with Government, its institutions and agencies for more transparent, just, accountable and responsive governance. Indeed no one person or institution has a monopoly of ideas. Let us equally commit to honesty, transparency, accountability and discipline to ensure accelerated national development and progress.
Collectively we can build a new democratic and prosperous Zimbabwe.
Happy New Year.
