The ZANU PF Midlands provincial leadership is intensifying the support mobilisation drive by taking the congress resolutions to the people.
Weeks after the revolutionary party successfully held its Congress in the capital, delegates to the party’s high-level meeting are on the ground to brief the grassroots on the resolutions made in Harare.
Addressing party supporters at Kahobo Bisiness Centre in Gokwe-Chireya constituency in the Midlands Province, ZANU PF Midlands Provincial deputy chairperson, Cde Edson Chiherenge reaffirmed President Emmerson Mnangagwa as the party’s sole candidate for the 2023 harmonised elections.
“We are going around 28 constituencies in the Midlands Province briefing party members that the just-ended 7th National People’s Congress unanimously endorsed and reaffirmed President Mnangagwa as the party’s sole candidate in the 2023 harmonised elections,” said Cde Chiherenge.
“Our job as a party is to preach and practice unity. Let us not behave as people from the opposition,” he added.
Gokwe-Chireya legislator, Cde Torerai Moyo noted the impact of President Mnangagwa’s developmental projects, saying they cannot go unnoticed.
“While we were at the 7th National People’s Congress held Harare, one of the resolutions that came out of the congress was to choose President Mnangagwa as our sole candidate for the 2023 harmonised elections. In him we have a loving father who has sacrificed for his country and has managed to develop this country, from road rehabilitation programmes to other infrastructural projects around the country and he has also managed to prepare his people for the upcoming farming season. Let us continue supporting President Mnangagwa,” he said.
The ruling party is targeting at least five million votes for ZANU PF and President Mnangagwa come 2023.
