FORMER banker and prominent businessman Nigel Chanakira has challenged Zimbabweans to realize that no foreigner will build the country and grow the economy.
The Success Motivation International chief executive officer said a whole mindest change was needed both at individual level as well as corporate and Government levels.
“Let’s not look down upon ourselves, let us believe in ourselves, use our brains on empowering ourselves, nobody will rescue us
“We must have a philosophy of empowering ourselves, we can raise ourselves, it begins with our girl child, it begins with devolution, people in our districts, economic programmes and policies that enable those in the rural areas to prosper”
The former Kingdom Bank founding chief executive made the remarks at the Zimbabwe Institute of Strategic Thinkers symposium held in Harare this Monday.
Zimbabwe has attracted major companies in oil and gas, lithium, steel industry, mining and infrastructure development projects.
