A trained journalist, Maridadi said any developmental assistance targeted at constituencies from the donor community would be affected by Zimbabwe’s global relations.
He said the consequences of poor diplomatic practices by the national leadership, would be borne by ordinary people.
“For Zimbabwe to move forward, we should start engaging with the world,” Maridadi told The Zimbabwean.
He said he would champion the cause of journalists in parliament, but urged media workers to be professional.
Commenting on his constituency, Maridadi described Mabvuku-Tafara as a polarised area. The constituency, which is home to an estimated 100,000 people, has a high unemployment rate. He acknowledged the mammoth task ahead and emphasised the need for good governance policies by the central government.
“Constituency development is a function of how the national and global economy is performing,” he said.
Despite the economic challenges faced by Harare City Council, he promised that everything possible would be done to provide quality services to residents.Post published in: News
