Zimbabwe’s newly sworn-in cabinet ministers are reportedly “putting in extra hours every day to meet targets” set by President Emmerson Mnangagwa “as a new work ethic takes root in government”.
According to the state-owned Sunday Mail newspaper, Mnangagwa had tasked every minister to come up with at least three target-driven economic projects with a 100-day turnaround period.
The project proposals were due this week.
It would be remembered that in his first speech as the president of Zimbabwe on November 24, Mnangagwa sent a stern warning to public officials who did not display commitment to their jobs.
“To our civil servants, it cannot be business as usual. You have to roll up your sleeves in readiness to deliver. We have an economy to recover, a people to serve,” Mnangagwa said during his inauguration speech at the National Sports Stadium in Harare.
