President Emmerson Mnangagwa has pleaded with Zimbabweans based abroad to return home and help him in reviving the country’s economy.

Speaking during the Independence Day commemorations at the National Sports Stadium on April 18, Mnangagwa said his depensation had started a raft of reforms which would enable Diasporans to return home.

I am aware that a notable part of our citizens is currently spread across the Diaspora.

The raft of reforms we have started should enable some of them to return home and assist in building our nation.

On foreign relations, the engagement and re-engagement policy with all countries in the international community, based on mutual respect, is progressing well.

Various strategic engagements have resulted in the signing of numerous bilateral cooperation agreements and concrete investments.

We, however, call for the unconditional removal of the illegal and unjustified economic sanctions imposed on us so that our nation can realise its full developmental potential, free from any hindrances
