Young people have been urged to be innovative and patriotic in their approach to economic development by creating an appropriate environment for developing solutions as this serves as a catalyst for economic and social advancement of the country.

In an interview, Goromonzi North ward 16; Councilor Charles Majuru said it is high time the youths changed their mindset and become innovative so that they can be masters of their destiny.

“Government has introduced viable projects and young people have to be innovative in order to change their destiny”, he said.

He further highlighted that the country has been languishing in illegal sanctions imposed by the West and facing a myriad of challenges and shortages thus youths should take the opportunity to form a fertile ground for modernization and inventiveness to take place.

Concurring with Majuru’s sentiments, Nyasha Choruwa said youth policies being promulgated by the Second Republic are a cornerstone in total emancipation of youths and will assist in capacity building of skills thus enhancing development.

“Innovation hubs introduced by President Mnangagwa at the country’s institutions of higher learning have proved to be game changers and key in the transformation and industrialisation of the country.’

Sydney Mhondera, an academia said; ‘youths are faced with high unemployment rate; thus it is, therefore, laudable that the government is making strides to revolutionize its university education system to make it produce graduates who will become job creators.”

Since the commencement of 2018, the government of Zimbabwe has shown commendable efforts aimed at innovation through the setting up of innovation hubs at its universities. This initiative is of paramount importance as it intends to elevate universities to a position towards revival and economic transformation through the provision of technical and research-based solutions which will see the realisation of Vision 2030.

The idea behind the innovation hubs as enunciated by President Mnangagwa was meant to encourage tertiary institutions to think outside the box and implement to build Zimbabwe into an upper-middle-class economy by 2030.
