Zanu-PF se­cures con­fer­ence ac­com­mo­da­tion

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Walter Mswazie Masvingo Cor­re­spon­dent

THE Zanu-PF lead­er­ship in Masvingo has se­cured ac­com­mo­da­tion for all delegates at­tend­ing the party’s An­nual Na­tional Peo­ple’s Con­fer­ence slated for De­cem­ber in their prov­ince.

The con­fer­ence prepa­ra­tions are now at an ad­vanced stage with the clear­ing of ground in progress at the show­grounds, the venue of the con­fer­ence.

The pro­vin­cial lead­er­ship sought graders and cater­pil­lars from the District De­vel­op­ment Fund (DDF) and other part­ners to pre­pare the venue.

Act­ing Masvingo pro­vin­cial chair­man Cde Amasa Nhen­jana said all was mov­ing ac­cord­ing to plan as the lo­cal or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee was re­ceiv­ing the re­quired sup­port from party mem­bers and well-wish­ers.

He said ac­com­mo­da­tion for at least 7 000 peo­ple had been se­cured.

Masvingo’s host­ing of the con­fer­ence fol­lows the suc­cess­ful hold­ing of Pres­i­dent Mu­gabe’s 92nd birth­day bash at the Great Zim­babwe Mon­u­ment in Fe­bru­ary where more than 50 000 peo­ple were in at­ten­dance.

“We have se­cured about 7 000 beds from a num­ber of stake­hold­ers in the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try. We ex­pect more than 6 000 delegates and we are as­sured all will have ac­com­mo­da­tion. We have our stake­hold­ers who have of­fered us their lodges and ho­tels for the delegates to the con­fer­ence,” said Cde Nhen­jana.

He said well-wish­ers who pledged cash are de­posit­ing money into the party’s bank ac­count and hopes are high that the $50 000 tar­get will be sur­passed.

Cde Nhen­jana said the ex­ec­u­tive has se­cured a grader from DDF for the grad­ing of the site to en­able them to pitch tents.

“We have also started work on the con­struc­tion of a new toi­let after city en­gi­neer Tawanda Gozo showed us where it should be built,” he said

The prov­ince last hosted the con­fer­ence in 2003 at Masvingo Teacher’s Col­lege. — @wal­terbm­swazie2
