SADC Urged to Reduce Dependence on Aid

Mugabe urges SADC states to reduce its dependence on foreign aid and to make better use of its natural resources such as minerals and land

Zimbabwe President, Robert Mugabe, has urged the Southern African Development Community (SADC) member states to reduce its dependence on foreign aid and to make better use of its natural resources such as minerals and land.

Speaking at the opening of a two-day summit of the 15-member SADC in Zimbabwe, Mugabe warns that the continued over-reliance on the goodwill of the cooperation partners compromises African countries the opportunity to own the SADC.

He adds that, "Our region has abundant resources which instead of being sold in raw form at very low prices must be exploited ... to add value to the products which we export."
