THE ZANU PF Masvingo Provincial leadership took the party’s 7th congress resolutions to the Chiredzi district, with party members being challenged to remain united ahead of next year’s harmonised elections.
The feedback meeting held at Tshovani Stadium in Chiredzi this Sunday was addressed by several party leaders, among them Politburo member, Cde Lovemore Matuke.
“We are going to hold similar meetings in all the districts. We are here following what President Mnangagwa tasked us to do, that is to take the congress’ resolutions to the people, to the grassroots, while showing them the leadership they chose,” he said.
The congress feedback meetings have been described as deliberate initiatives meant to drum up support for the revolutionary party ahead of the 2023 elections.
ZANU PF Masvingo provincial chairman, Cde Robson Mavenyengwa said, “I urge all of you to unite. We want united people. We finished restructuring our structures up to the Central Committee level to mean that it’s now time for us to unite as a party and mobilise votes for our President and for the party.”
The meeting also gave party supporters in Chiredzi an opportunity to reflect on the government’s life-changing programmes that have led to the development of rural communities in the district.
“We are seeing what the new dispensation is doing. Recently, we were in Mt Hampden where we saw the state-of-the-art Parliament building. We have noticed several programmes that the government has rolled out to improve the livelihoods of communities in rural areas. The programmes include Education 5.0 and Agriculture 8.0. In Chiredzi urban, we have started receiving Pfumvudza inputs and we are also happy to be beneficiaries of the Presidential Cotton Inputs Scheme,” said Chiredzi West legislator, Cde Farai Musikavanhu.
Similar engagements are set to be held in all the districts across Masvingo province.
