Zanu PF says the Zimbabwe Agenda for Social and Economic Transformation will spearhead the country's growth for the next five years though members of the public believe that the document is a heap of jargon.

Zanu PF says the Zimbabwe Agenda for Social and Economic Transformation will spearhead the country's growth for the next five years though members of the public believe that the document is a heap of jargon.

A non-governmental organization says most Zimbabweans do not understand the contents of the ruling party’s five-year economic blue print which projects that the country will generate more than 2 million jobs by 2018.

Bulawayo Agenda, which has been holding a series of meetings in various parts of the country, says people who attended their workshops in Masvingo and other parts of the country indicated that the Zimbabwe Agenda for Sustainable Socio-Economic Transformation (ZIMASSET) is too complicated for public consumption.

The organization’s communications director, Mmeli Dube, tells studio 7 Zanu PFneeds to simplify the document for the benefit of the nation.

But political analyst and Zanu PF activist Morris Ngwenya says parliamentarians are making all efforts to publicize ZIMASSET.

“Zanu PF parliamentarians are trying by all means to publicize the programme in most parts of the country,” says Ngwenya.

Zimbabwe’s economy continues to shrink as the country is failing to attract the much-needed foreign direct investment and capital to revive collapsing industries.

Various world organizations projects that the economy will grow by almost 4 percent this year, about 2 percent less than the state projected figure.
