THE inclusive development agenda of the Second Republic has charmed various communities with the ruling ZANU PF expanding its support base ahead of the 2023 harmonised elections.
This was summed up by ZANU PF Women’s League Secretary for Administration, Senator Monica Mutsvangwa when she addressed the wing’s inter-district meetings in Nyanga and Mutasa this Friday.
“We need to remain resolute in ensuring President Mnangagwa wins the elections. As the Women’s League members, everywhere you go you should talk about the great work being done by President Mnangagwa.
“The achievements which he made in the last four years are unbelievable. Rwenya Bridge, which was destroyed in 2012, has been constructed by President Mnangagwa. The construction of key infrastructure including roads and dams is astonishing. The President does not want corruption as he established the Zimbabwe Anti Corruption Commission and gave it the necessary powers. The number of affiliates in support of the President reflects the public appreciation with regards to his leadership and it should not be difficult to convince more people to join the ruling party.
“The President has made it a point that all the people are given inputs. He has put in place a system to ensure many people benefit and the process is not excluding anyone based on political affiliation. We should appreciate the wisdom exhibited by our President. The people should vote for ZANU PF who are accountable to their party as opposed to the CCC whose leader hand-picks candidates,” she said.
ZANU PF Women’s League provincial chairperson, Cde Happiness Nyakuedzwa is convinced the numerical advantage of women should propel the party and its Presidential candidate to a resounding victory come next year.
“The President believes in us as women and let us not disappoint him. We need to play a pivotal role in mobilising more support for our President who is advancing the empowerment drive,’ said Cde Nyakuedzwa.
Meanwhile, Minister Mutsvangwa donated wheelchairs and walking aids to persons with disabilities in Nyanga and Mutasa as well as basic commodities to the elderly in line with the government and ZANU PF’s policy to support all vulnerable groups.
