AAG calls for serious investors.
The Affirmative Action Group has called on Government to come up with mechanisms that deter foreign investors from venturing into the reserved sectors of the economy.
This came out during the relaunch of the Affirmative Action Group Kadoma District chapter this Saturday.
“Our challenge is we treat investors with gloved hands, we want serious investors who do not come here to cook Sadza, speculation is high in mining sector, because we charge peanuts to foreigners, we appreciate the indigenisation policy and we as AAG we should be the custodian of the policy,” said Cde Clifford Hlupeko- AAG National Secretary General.
AAG Mashonaland West Province Vice Chairman Hon Dexter Nduna and Cde Tapiwa Chikondowa -Mashonaland West Provincial Chairman AAG urged the local entrepreneurs to forge partnerships which will enhance their businesses and work within the confines of the law.
“Bank loans are expensive you cannot do business with that, only partnerships can help us,said Chikondowa.
“Everything that we do is guided by the law so let us harness our constitution and augment government efforts to emancipate the previously marginalised,” added Nduna.
AAG founding member Cde Jimayi Muduvuri implored the new leadership to continue supporting ZANU-PF policies which promote indigenous emancipation.
“When you join AAG you have joined ZANUPF this is a pressure group to support ZANUPF empowerment policies,” he said.
The AAG was established in the early 90s by a group of indigenous entrepreneurs seeking meaningful involvement in the mainstream economy.
