2:32 pm
political contestation for next year someone are. very very governmental. wrong. riders. repairs before our. mars. just play our part to this very current to their problems. i think. today's republic of zimbabwe enters the second stage of its birth the words from zimbabwe's second president since independence really focus on peace rebuilding economic recovery and reconciliation is the main pillars of that speech a promise
2:33 pm
a country without discrimination against color or creed to not of respect to robert mugabe for taking them to independence he recommitted himself and his government to land reform and rid redistribution he said economic policy will be based on agriculture and you also asked those of punished us in the past to reconsider his words of the talk about those countries we've imposed sanctions against zimbabwe have a team of reporters covering this event or i'm a tussle brings us reaction from the streets in harare tanya page joins us from pretoria in neighboring south africa but we begin with anderson's is inside the stadium where the ceremonies taking place. focused a lot on economic recovery didn't he said he's tired and it's not time now for speeches but rather to hit the ground running i'm sure everyone was happy to hear that. yes hit the ground running was one take away from this another wall stuff
2:34 pm
he was committed to peace really this was a message of reconciliation he talked about all creeds all colors of skin and also whole political backgrounds showed the country that there would be free and fair election he said that. had been the fault of the father of independence and he said that this was the second phase of the birth of zimbabwe and he related to. a business plan effectively here to show the country that he would do something about the pos that he would change things he didn't speak directly of the stakes mugabe had made he just implied that he ran out of steam he made no mention of grace mugabe who was the key figure in the faction that stood against the army and that very needy came home flicked the police force was supposed to be which isn't on the streets right now and there's still an issue
2:35 pm
there with the army not having gone back to the barracks but this was a man talking about peace on the issue of land reform he talked about compensation for white farmers a definite plan to end the rounds of reclaiming land which take back the liberation of will to actually compensate white farmers to do some rights were wrong a taken place although he in fact how did instituted the land reform program at the turn of the century would lead to fall out of this and all that ensued there let's look at the other aspects of the economic package that's been announced here with vincent economist who has a lot of knowledge of the politics of zimbabwe as well as the issues to have one of the highlights very good i think you can think he's going to hit the ground running . he's going to address the issue which has been the problem is that they never mentioned anything about this ease going to step in eyes upon injured service
2:36 pm
sector he's going to attract investment he's going to deal with corruption and he's encouraging a work ethic in that from not only its work. laziness so he's done all the points he's covered all the points that i expected but how's he going to get those jobs is going to have a key to the investment he talks about. and everything else he's got a cultural program the most amount of functions up to into place how is he going to get west getting the money from places bankrupt the has it been a record funding i mean we've just said for example the agricultural season with forty billion was put into that sector i think we'll be able to get credit if we can if we shows confidence to go into an international market and i think you know we must get how the international market must really help us to restart zimbabwe to reinvent zimbabwe so that we can really create the future that we want is still the man known for his oratory to actually see the faces of people and to see them right
2:37 pm
now looking concentrated looking not necessarily fully trustworthy of all shades of political opinion and people buying into this well you know what he said he's talked about elections next year so you introductions are going to be next year means even with you know really focused and he has to prove himself in the very short period but at the same time he also spoke about the inclusive it and you can see here i mean every shade of zimbabwe's this is a good thing because of. this story told here will take a little take some observers. then so let's just look further ahead those elections there is concern about whether zanu p.f. will go. to its old ways for a fraction beating down any attempt to try and take all the power that is in place
2:38 pm
now do you really believe that can happen i think the opposition is going to increase the pressure for reforms because. with the current. and with the currents in the current status they have to be substantial reforms before we can even expect. with the u.k. . china represented the list of people festoons is pretty and do you think then that you're going to see some fairly quick deals to get cash into the country to get out of this mess to get out of debt. situation we need an immediate risky package. to come into zimbabwe into. it's going to take but right now we need. but this look at this issue of trust because let's face it that's what everything
2:39 pm
is now. this man. has necessarily see the. things he. has lost it's missing with human rights issues is that on occasion so. to the trustees. yes he is a war hero the scale of. that is that really doesn't fit comfortably with what we're seeing now what he's trying to address the whole world and saying come in first it's a problem when they come so close to it who would be an option if he had to flee the country. across the border in dismissive into five. and i'm sure you can't change what you don't want to do to you even at the cost of
2:40 pm
leading senate here principles behind. the principles we have to talk about the economy that's really what we have to focus on even say that. politics. focus on growing the economy and i think we're going to get. focused on the economy and i know. it's progressed you're going to cynical as you were oh you don't a cynical i'm an optimist. optimistic but you have to help him. and we have to help him and you. do what we can given this particular opportunity like you very much in the field. analysis that so there you have it what an extraordinary day in the history of africa not just symbolic way we have a new president who is. ready. to see the names business to see that zimbabwe and certainly the sixty thousand plus in
2:41 pm
this stadium buying into it will the rest of africa will investors will do so this could change the country that awful soon. who relied on the people who will vote for the contemplates if it is a surreal atmosphere here in this stadium packed to the gunnels and so jane i'm back to you at this time thank you for that and let's go to south africa tanya pages following reaction for us from pretoria now wondering how this is playing out there how it's playing out on the tens of thousands of zimbabweans and of the. well i think many people would have been glued to their televisions and radios just to listen to that speech in which he really had something in there for everyone addressing all the concerns of the large zimbabwean death were who are not only
2:42 pm
here in south africa but some three million zimbabweans scattered all over the continent and all over the world driven out of their country partly some for political reasons but many as we've heard because of economic reasons they've got a good education many have professionals with work experience but they just haven't been the jobs back at home for them to be able to stay there and support their family so they come to countries like south africa in order to earn a living and money back home which plays a really important part of zimbabwe's economy behind me at the union building south african president jacob zuma has been hosting and goal is new president a lot in c.e.o. and he had a message for zimbabwe which he described as south africa's a sister country saying he was watching on very pleased with the political process he said zimbabwe is quote sailing through the scenes congratulations to a new president in his among. and also to look we need to pay tribute to robert
2:43 pm
mugabe who played a gallant contribution in liberating and assisting in the liberation of many southern african countries and obviously the liberation of. all the zimbabwe and says that that must always be recognized and acknowledged. and. i guess from an economic point of view zimbabwe succeeding is very important for zimbabweans in cells and for south africa considering that not going to say that it's had its ups and rethink. yes absolutely i mean regionally a strong zimbabwe can only be of benefit. zimbabweans make an enormous contribution to in all the countries where they have been. to flee to and we have to and i think over the last particularly five years or so the real introspection among many many southern african countries and recognition that you know off the back of the financial crisis in two thousand and eight all of these countries really suffered
2:44 pm
because they're so dependent on on wished and countries and western markets to buy their war goods which is really the backbone of most of the countries in this part of the world so they are looking to their neighbors they're looking to china as new markets open and we saw a short while ago just a couple of months ago former president mugabe was here visiting president zuma and one of the things they came up with was the sort of much smoother border process so that there is a bit of flow and ease of access not only to tourists but for their own citizens moving back was important another point empathized by the president's meeting in the building just behind me there that they've announced that they're going to waive the visa process for tourists into business visas between angola and south africa so there is a real concerted effort to try and open up the borders open them up for business and investment which will grow obviously not only a stronger zimbabwe and dollar and south africa but will have flow on knock on benefits for the rest of the region all right thank you tanya let's go back to
2:45 pm
zimbabwe that's go back to harare how much us has been standing outside the stadium where the events have been unfolding for the last several hours or so i'm just wondering i believe you've been. smelling wonderful smells in the brize behind you people getting ready to party various wonder how well his words went down with those listening. people heard him speak the new president they said he said all the right things the job creation you resuscitate the economy they're very happy by that but they know that it's going to take time and they say they're willing to be patient if he does the right thing they will sit and watch and wait for him to do its thing and while they wait life of course the must go on we're just around the corner. from the stadium this place is called water and park this particular area is called america it's a popular. bry area where you come and you you buy your meat and then you use these women to cook it for you and then they serve it with the staple food here this is
2:46 pm
a maize meal is called sides ice maze and water based give us that to come out in a few hours time from the stadium here to come and have fun but this is how these will make a living because there is no joy in the country people have had to be creative about how to to find work so these women book these stalls like my george my memory my lines the book little stalls they cook meals for people who then come save them a dollar or two dollars three dollars that's how they make some money to take money home to their family and this particular area is a particular typical of most townships in the country where you see shops. basic things on on the street but you're looking quite rundown a sign of how years and years of a stagnant economy has made things quite difficult for many people but but the is a nation that is your relations people your age seeing things to change they know to take time right now they have that this is a new leader president emerson and what they are hoping they really hoping that he
2:47 pm
