War collaborators have commended the vetting process which was conducted by the Second Republic and have pledged to sharpen their mobilisation drive ahead of the harmonised elections set for next year.
The Second Republic led by President Emmerson Mnangagwa continues to promote inclusive development with the successful vetting of war collaborators being a major talking point at their national conference held in Nyanga this Saturday.
“We are so excited following the holding of a successful vetting process. We thank our President for spearheading the initiative,” a delegate said.
Another said, “We will pay back the honour by campaigning vigorously for the party and President ahead of the next elections.”
The Zimbabwe Liberation War Collaborators Association (ZILIWACO) chairperson, Cde Pupurai Togarepi, is convinced that his constituency will play a pivotal role in delivering a resounding victory for President Mnangagwa.
“Cde President, we assure you that as ZILIWACO, as the nation holds elections, we are determined to campaign for you and the party. We will continue defending the revolution as we are part of the ZANU PF party as we sacrificed our lives to liberate the country,” he said.
Vice President, General (Retired) Dr Constantino Chiwenga encouraged war collaborators to ensure the gains of the liberation are protected.
“You are many in numbers and including your families. You have the power to elect the President into office. You should not lose the dedication and commitment you had during the liberation struggle and after independence,” he urged.
Vice President Chiwenga brought good news to the people of Nyanga after revealing plans to rehabilitate Binya Road which has a rich liberation history significance.
“I want to respond to the issue raised by the ZANU PF chairperson, Cde Mukodza, that Binya Road is in bad shape and needs to be rehabilitated. Rwenya Bridge is about to be completed and the road will start to be rehabilitated soon. The money to rehabilitate Binya Road has been set aside. Chief Katere inform your subjects that the issue is now being attended by the government.”
According to the political leadership in Manicaland province, the close alliance between war collaborators and the party organs and affiliate groups is a good combination to achieving the five million votes target.
