Cape Town: The ZIM-SA Forum has called on the Zimbabwean business people based in Cape Town to consider investing in their home country and heed the new President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s call.
Speaking at Belmont Square in Cape Town, the President of the ZIM-SA forum Anele Ndlovu said, ”Zimbabweans must now speak positively about themselves and their country knowing that investment into Zimbabwe should come through you.”
The event centred on opportunities available for investment in Zimbabwe for diaspora, international investors and underscores the need for empowerment of Diasporans as a key cornerstone for national economic recovery.
To date, ZIM-SA Forum has managed to facilitate MENAR Resources (a South African company) set up operations in Zimbabwe under Nzou Resources, specialising in Mining as well as Infrastructure Development.
ZIM-SA Western Cape Chairperson, Julius Shamhu revealed to Allnet Africa, that, following the networking event a South African ICT Company, Pacific Gear, has registered and is setting up operations in Gweru – a town south of the Capital, Harare. Prosper a Zimbabwean business man is leading with 80% shareholding stake in the venture.
ZIM-SA Forum provides a unique platform for Zimbabweans in the Diaspora to reposition themselves and contribute towards national economic recovery trajectory and poverty eradication.
