I wish to convey my condolences to the nation and the Bloch family following the death of renowned economist, Eric Bloch.
Bloch was a conscientious fellow and a renowned economist whose analyses reflected a deep and passionate love for his country. He was always concerned with the issue of how our country’s economy could improve.
He was always passionate about the measures, both political and economic, that we should take as a nation to enable Zimbabweans to pursue a life of happiness and stability.
We in the MDC wish to assure the Bloch family that we are with them in their time of grief and mourning.
Bloch was a true and honest embodiment of a life of service and sacrifice, which at one time saw him serve at the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe as an advisor at a time this country required services that only a few like him could offer.
On behalf of the MDC and on my own behalf, I wish to state that the country is the biggest loser through his death and may the dear soul of this respected Zimbabwean rest in eternal peace.
Morgan Tsvangirai, MDC President
