THE ruling ZANU PF party says the country’s development aspirations can only be realised if citizens pull in one direction, in the same manner, the nation united in the fight for independence.
The remarks were made in Mhondoro Mubaira this Wednesday during homecoming commemorations of the party’s senior politburo member, Ambassador Christopher Mutsvangwa.
Born and bred in Mhondoro, ZANU PF spokesperson and senior politburo member, Ambassador Christopher Mutsvangwa returned to where it all started when he joined a voter mobilisation campaign at Mubaira growth point this Wednesday.
He was accompanied by the province’s leadership and the Women’s League Secretary for Administration, Senator Monica Mutsvangwa who called for people to pull in one direction if they realise meaningful development.
“The liberation struggle aimed to have equal opportunities for all, but as the President is emphasizing politics of development, let’s strive to develop together and pull in one direction, and that includes voting for the party at all levels,” she said.
Upon delivering over 100 bicycles and motorbikes to district chairpersons and local leaders in Chegutu, Mhondoro and Norton, as well as inputs for the cropping season to the constituency, Ambassador Christopher Mutsvangwa said the party is living no one behind in its development matrix, hence the need for everyone to embrace the Second Republic’s development policies.
“After the national congress in which the people chose their rightful leader, we are here in Mhondoro Mubaira aimed at mobilising all in this area and vote for the ruling party, the bikes are for them to assist in registration for them to vote for the party of choice,” he said
The local leadership embraced the gesture which will enhance workmanship.
“What we have seen is critical to the party’s development, projects will be heard everywhere and inputs, we thank Cde Mutsvangwa and no place will be left behind,” said Honourable Mary Mliswa, Mashonaland West Minister of State for Provincial Affairs and devolution.
The ruling party has been capacitating communities in various capacities through various means that include availing farming implements to ensure a bumper harvest.
