ZANU PF National Political Commissar Dr Mike Bimha says the revolutionary party performed exceptionally well this year, with voter mobilisation programmes set to be rolled out early next year in preparation for the 2023 harmonised elections.
The revolutionary ZANU PF party scored big in 2022, with the number of returnees also having ensured the success of the party in by-elections.
The number of affiliates also played an important role towards voter mobilisation and ZANU PF National Political Commissar Dr Mike Bimha attributes the good performance of the party to the work carried out by its wings.
“All in all, the party had a pleasing performance in 2022. I would like to thank all our party wings for the effort. This shows ZANU PF is the only party with a history, the party which has driven the revolution up to now where we are championing economic development,” he said.
Government has made tremendous strides towards rolling out infrastructure development and rural industrialisation which also played a critical role in promoting party programmes, says Dr Bimha.
“Credit must go to government for a sterling performance during the time that the government came into power. Government achieved a lot in mining, infrastructure, tourism and rural industrialization. This has helped the party to make inroads. As government continues to make huge strides, the party will also get stronger and stronger,” he said.
In 2022, ZANU PF consolidated its position as the party of choice in all the by-elections.
The ruling party has oiled its structures through elective conferences for all wings ahead of the 2023 harmonised elections.
