“We have been waiting for this for years and nothing was happening. We proposed the issue of mandatory sentences for rapists during the late former President Robert Mugabe’s time and the law never saw the light of the day given the male-dominated systems of Parliament.”
Chief Fortune Charumbira also commended efforts being made to address the cash crisis in the country.Mnangagwa announced that his government was pursuing removal of arbitrage in order to address the cash situation.
“We are impressed with the delivery made by the President because he touched on core issues and measures that the Executive is taking to ensure that issues of the exchange rate that have been causing problems in the country are addressed,” Charumbira said.
He then castigated the stance taken by the main opposition MDC to walk out of Mnangagwa’s speech, saying problems in the country cannot be solved by demonstrations.
“Problems cannot be solved by fighting. We attained peace by putting guns down and they must not play to the public gallery. Political parties should respect the President,” Charumbira said.
