Open Letter To President Emmerson Mnangagwa


Dear President

I am writing this letter to extend my heartfelt congratulations on your successful re-election and to express my gratitude for the inspiring speech you delivered at your inauguration. I am writing to you as a concerned and hopeful young citizen of Zimbabwe, eager to contribute to the progress and development of our beloved nation.

As we embark on the next phase of our journey, I am filled with anticipation and curiosity about what lies ahead for the youth of Zimbabwe in the next five years.

Firstly, I would like to acknowledge the strides that have been made in addressing the challenges faced by our generation. Your commitment to youth empowerment, as evidenced by various initiatives, has not gone unnoticed. However, as we look to the future, there are still crucial areas that require attention and concerted efforts to ensure a prosperous and inclusive society for all.

One of the key factors that will shape the future of our youth is the quality of education and skills training available. I urge your administration to prioritize the enhancement of our education system, ensuring that it equips young Zimbabweans with the knowledge, skills, and critical thinking abilities necessary to compete in a rapidly evolving global landscape.

As you always say “Nyika Inovakwa nevene vayo”, investing in vocational training programmes and promoting entrepreneurship will open doors to alternative opportunities, foster innovation, and reduce unemployment rates.

Unemployment remains a pressing issue for the youth, hindering our ability to contribute effectively to the nation’s growth. I implore you to continue your efforts in creating an enabling environment for job creation, particularly by stimulating investment, supporting small and medium-sized enterprises, and exploring sectors with untapped potential.

Additionally, fostering transparency, accountability, and a fair business environment will attract both local and foreign investors, spurring economic growth and generating employment opportunities for the youth.

Your Excellency, Zimbabwean youth are deeply concerned about the pervasive issue of drug abuse and the harmful effects of substance misuse within their communities. Your second term must prioritize tackling this pressing challenge by implementing comprehensive strategies for prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation.

The youth demand increased awareness campaigns and educational programmes that educate them about the dangers of drug abuse and equip them with the necessary skills to resist peer pressure. By investing in prevention initiatives, such as school-based programmes and community outreach, the government can empower young people to make informed decisions and steer clear of illicit substances.

Furthermore, there is a critical need to enhance access to effective treatment and rehabilitation services for those struggling with addiction. Your government should allocate resources to bolster existing treatment centers and establish new facilities that cater specifically for the unique needs of young people. By providing comprehensive support, counseling services, and reintegration programmes, the government can help individuals break free from the cycle of addiction and rebuild their lives.

Collaboration with relevant stakeholders, including community leaders, NGOs, and healthcare professionals, is essential to combat the drug epidemic. By fostering partnerships and engaging in widespread consultations with youth-led organizations, the government can devise evidence-based strategies that address the root causes of substance abuse and promote positive alternatives, such as sports, arts, and vocational training.

The health and well-being of the youth are paramount for a thriving nation. I also urge your administration to prioritize accessible and affordable health care services, with a particular focus on mental health support. By investing in mental health resources, promoting awareness, and destigmatizing patients, we can ensure that our youth are equipped to face challenges and contribute positively to society.

Meaningful youth participation in decision-making processes is critical for the success and sustainability of any nation. I respectfully request that you continue to create platforms and opportunities for young people to engage with policymakers, share their perspectives, and actively contribute to shaping policies that directly affect us. By involving the youth in the decision-making process, we can harness our energy, creativity, and fresh perspectives to drive innovative solutions and foster a sense of ownership in the future of our country.

As youth, we believe in the power of unity and inclusivity. I encourage your administration to continue fostering a culture of social cohesion, tolerance, and respect for diversity. By promoting dialogue, understanding, and empathy, we can bridge the gaps that divide us, creating a stronger, more united Zimbabwe where every citizen feels valued and heard.

In conclusion, Mr. President, I express my sincere hope that you will consider the aspirations and concerns of the youth as you chart the course for the next five years. We stand ready to contribute, to be the catalysts of change, and to work hand in hand with you to build a brighter future for Zimbabwe. We believe that by investing in education, job creation, healthcare, youth empowerment, and social cohesion, we can create a prosperous nation where every young Zimbabwean can thrive.

Once again, congratulations on your second term, Mr. President. May you continue to lead with integrity, compassion, and a steadfast commitment to the betterment of our nation.

Yours sincrerely

Jeoffrey Ncube
