MDC president, Welshman Ncube on Thursday said the government is clueless on turning around the economy, but what is even sadder was that people continued to vote for the ruling Zanu PF party.

Ncube said it will not be surprising if people vote for Zanu PF in the June 10 by-elections.

“It is sad that Mugabe has failed to deliver the promises of the liberation struggle people are suffering in the country and some people have failed to secure a single job since 1980 the time Zanu PF started destroying the economy,” he said.

Ncube said his party raised the red flag on the lack of institutional and electoral reforms but the MDC-T was more concerned with ensuring that he never became a principal, taking sides with President Robert Mugabe.

“Some critics may not concur with me, but I was one of the few political leaders in the Inclusive government who perpetually raised the red flag on the paralysis of electoral reform and implementation.

"Ours is a crisis of leadership," Ncube says.
“Ours is a crisis of leadership,” Ncube says.

Speaking at Bulawayo Agenda’s Africa Day series, Ncube bemoaned what he termed a leadership crisis in the country, saying there was need for a paradigm shift in the manner in which the country approached human rights issues.

“I think we need a paradigm shift in this country because how can you build a nation in a scenario where there is no respect for human life and some people are insulting other citizens and they view them as uneducated,” he said in reference to President Robert Mugabe’s statement that uneducated Kalanga people were responsible for petty crime in neighbouring South Africa.
