President Emmerson Mnangagwa has issued a brash dismissal of government critics he claims were not too keen on seeing his country succeed, telling them they will not break the spirit of Zimbabweans.
Mnangagwa made the statement through his Twitter handle Friday.
“There are those both at home and abroad who do not want to succeed.
“To these people, I say this – You will never break the spirit of the Zimbabwean people!
“This is now the 6th fleet of buses that have been commissioned by my government. We are rebuilding our great nation!” he said.
This follows wide criticism over the chaotic manner government has handled the country’s public transport system.
Government banned from the country’s urban transport system, operators who were not willing to affiliate with the Zimbabwe United Passenger Company (Zupco).
The abrupt policy change has seen many locals often report late for work as the transport crisis took a toll.
Government has been shipping dozens of new buses in attempts to augment the current fleet and has further resurrected commuter trains to work in tandem with the road transport system.
Zimbabweans have gone into overdrive mocking the resurrection of rundown locomotives last used decades ago to transport commuters in Harare.
