If I ever become the President of Zimbabwe:

1. I'll limit parly seats to 100 and reduce gobbling tax payer's money
2. I will remove redundant titles like minister of state, deputy minister etc
3. The government vehicles will be purchased locally
4. 4x4 vehicles will only be for
parly members outside major cities. PAs must not get 4x4s and stay whole day in airconditioned rooms. 4x4 is for rugged work and terrain
5. I will leave ministers to do official openings of projects in their line of ministry. I can't be officially opening a powerstation when the
minister of energy is there. Same applies to roads when the minister of transport and infrastructure development is there.
6. I will change the education system we have right now. ECD A&B, Gr 1- 7, Form 1 - 6, Gap year, First year to 5th yr, 21 years of paying fees is not a joke
7. I will take the issue of devolution seriously as a matter of emergency. We can not have a country where someone travels 680km to get a passport, a metal drivers license or to visit some HQ government building.
8. I will ensure maximum productivity of parastatals through
effective monitoring and evaluation of projects. Those sleeping on duty and destroying public funds brought to book and jailed. I will also introduce an hourly rate on salaries coupled with a productivity based bonus. Time is lost unnecessarily in parastatals because end of month
someone knows they will get their pay anyway, whether they report for duty or come in just twice per month.
9. I will take corruption issues personally. It is very very easy for the rest of the citizenry to follow good practices if the leaders practice the preached gospel.
10. The issue of Gukurahundi needs a permanent solution once and for all. 71% of the whole population in Zimbabwe was not there (or did not even participate because they were too young) when it happened. However the effects are felt even today. I will let people learn from
Rwanda and Germany and we progress as a nation, embracing diversity as a major pillar of our strength. Segregation will have no place in this country as long as you are Zimbabwean your life will matter whether Black, Indian, White or Colored. There is more that unites us than
divides us. As long as you have a birth certificate and a passport stating that you are Zimbabwean, you will matter!

For now this is what I am thinking, if I ever become the President of Zimbabwe.

Our education in Africa is not helping us that much anymore. Bachelor's degrees produce a lot of managers. Polytechnic college diplomas produce handsmen and technicians. Now we have lots of degree holders (managers) than diploma holders(technicians and handsmen).The end result is
companies and organizations end up creating numerous managerial posts than to hire actual people who do the work. You have Director, Deputy Director, Assistant Deputy Director, PA to the Director, PA to the Assistant Deputy Director, Manager, Supervisor then the guy who does the
job. Now we wonder why there is no production yet half of the company is working on people instead of on production. In Zimbabwe, during Ian Smith's reign, he had one university and a lot of polytechnic colleges around the country. It made sure that it produced a lot of handsmen

As Africans, we have a lot of unproductive things we spend much time on. Imagine watching 4hrs+ of TV series per day. How much could we learn/do in that time frame? How many tutorial videos have you watched this year so as to learn a new skill or replenish an existing one?
How many TV series titles do you know if you are being honest with yourself? We are very good at plugging each other with movies and series. "Une ma movie here" is the question of the day. Rarely do you hear someone asking for tutorials.
We are all responsible and if we really need change, we need to consider this angle too. Yes entertainment is needed but in moderation. Same as gaming. If we channelled that effort to learning a skill or improving an existing, we would really be the best in our fields and craft.
