Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa used his State of the Nation Address to call for political tolerance among politicians ahead of the 2023 elections.

Mnangagwa delivered the address at a new multimillion-dollar Parliament building gifted by China.

The Asian economic giant funded and constructed the six-story parliament building in Mt. Hampden, about 18 kilometres west of the capital, Harare, as a “gift” to the country.

Mnangagwa once again called for an end to economic sanctions.

“The need for the unconditional removal of sanctions which have constrained socio-economic growth for decades remains urgent and imperative,” he said.

“Month-on-month inflation for September significantly declined to 3,5 percent from 12.4 percent in August 2022.”
