I have a dream (MoB’s)

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Business -

We dream of emerg­ing SMEs mak­ing it big. We have dreams about or­derly vend­ing. We see emerg­ing big­ger and bet­ter brands ris­ing like a whirl­wind and con­sum­ing ev­ery­thing that comes into its vor­tex.

We dream of bank­able 99 year leases. We dream of own­ers of land and means of pro­duc­tion. We dream of re­duced im­ports .We dream of busi­ness in­cu­ba­tion and men­tor­ship. We dream of wealth not riches.

We dream of a peo­ple with a strate­gic eye that sees be­yond to­mor­row. A peo­ple that sees low hang­ing fruits and grabs them with both hands. We dream of Ubuntu in our value sys­tems guided by rel­e­vant laws and reg­u­la­tions.

We dream of a youth with a pur­pose, re­spon­si­ble and ac­count­able cul­ture. We see men­tor­ship and ap­pren­tice­ship .We dream of a mid­dle class de­fined and form­ing ma­jor­ity.

We dream of more gen­der equal­ity from grass­roots as we pur­sue fi­nan­cial in­clu­sion.

We dream of free flow of busi­ness in­for­ma­tion. We dream of a 24 hour work­ing busi­ness cul­ture.

We dream pol­icy con­sis­tency. We dream of lack of bu­reau­cracy in our sys­tems. We dream of a leaner and meaner civil work force. We dream of fair and just re­mu­ner­a­tion. We dream of green en­ergy power gen­er­a­tion and more than enough power gen­er­a­tion. We dream of a pre­served en­vi­ron­ment.

We dream re­al­is­tic dreams. We dream that we can see with our minds. We dream of har­ness­ing tal­ent to reach max­i­mum po­ten­tial. We see op­ti­mum use of hu­man tal­ent.

We dream of re­duced com­mer­cial shenani­gans.

We dream of pros­per­ity of the na­tion through sheer hard work.

We dream of max­i­mum ex­ploita­tion of nat­u­ral re­sources. We dream of ac­count­abil­ity, re­spon­si­bil­ity, ef­fi­cient and ef­fec­tive hands on ap­proach by all stake­hold­ers.

We dream of a pro­tected en­vi­ron­ment in­clud­ing an­i­mals in a sus­tain­able man­ner.

Above all we dream of you and you and you mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in each other’s lives. We dream of a con­sti­tu­tion that is fair to all eco­nomic ac­tors and ev­ery­one abides by it.

We need to dream oth­er­wise we die a nat­u­ral death. Dreams are the fu­ture and the fu­ture is what we are look­ing for, ac­tu­ally a great fu­ture for us and our chil­dren and our chil­dren’s chil­dren.

We dream of a bet­ter fu­ture of which it is com­ing ... Why do we dream so much? It is be­cause we BE­LIEVE IN THE COUN­TRY ABOVE ALL WE BE­LIEVE IN YOU AND YOU AND YOU AND YOU AND WE PRAY YOU BE­LIEVE IN YOUR­SELF.
