Zimbabwe's ousted vice president publishes manifesto

Posted:

Zimbabwe's ousted vice president has released a political manifesto, signaling her possible intention to launch a new party to challenge President Robert Mugabe.


   Joice Mujuru published a policy statement on Tuesday, titled the Blueprint to Unlock Investment and Leverage for Development, or BUILD. The statement outlines her plans to revive Zimbabwe's ailing economy and strengthen democratic rights.


   The manifesto calls for all Zimbabweans to have access to land. In 2000, thousands of white farmers were stripped of their land in often violent evictions.
   Mujuru's ally Rugare Gumbo would not say whether Mujuru would formally launch a political party.


   She was fired along with eight other cabinet ministers in December last year, after Mugabe accused her of plotting to remove him.


   Mugabe, 91, has ruled Zimbabwe since independence in 1980.
