Zanu-PF prov­inces meet ahead of con­fer­ence

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Felex Share Harare Bureau

ZANU-PF will hold pro­vin­cial in­ter-dis­trict con­fer­ences this week to come up with res­o­lu­tions that will form the ba­sis of the dis­cus­sions at the 16th An­nual Na­tional Peo­ple’s Con­fer­ence slated for Masvingo next month.

The con­fer­ence will run from De­cem­ber 13 to 17 at the Masvingo Show­grounds.

Party districts met at the week­end and came up with res­o­lu­tions which will be turned into pro­vin­cial pack­ages this week.

Res­o­lu­tions dom­i­nat­ing the dis­trict meet­ings held at the week­end in­clude the en­dorse­ment of Zanu-PF First Sec­re­tary Pres­i­dent Mu­gabe as the party’s sole can­di­date for the 2018 har­monised elec­tions, need to pun­ish of­fi­cials fin­gered in cor­rup­tion and deal with cadres who con­tinue tak­ing party is­sues to so­cial me­dia.

This comes as prov­inces have also started ac­cred­it­ing dis­trict party mem­bers to be at the Con­fer­ence.

Zanu-PF sec­re­tary for ad­min­is­tra­tion Cde Ig­natius Chombo yes­ter­day said the agenda of the Masvingo con­fer­ence would be drawn from the res­o­lu­tions be­ing worked on.

“Al­most all the districts had meet­ings yes­ter­day. This com­ing week, we will hold pro­vin­cial in­ter-dis­trict con­fer­ences mean­ing the whole province will meet to look at the res­o­lu­tions in var­i­ous sec­tors such as agri­cul­ture, health, trans­port, state of the party, state of the econ­omy, Zim-As­set etcetera. This means the res­o­lu­tions from the var­i­ous districts which met yes­ter­day are go­ing to be put to­gether this week and be­come pro­vin­cial pack­ages.

“The res­o­lu­tions are then sent to my of­fice to­gether with the pro­vin­cial re­port and that will now en­rich the Cen­tral Com­mit­tee re­port. I will pass on the res­o­lu­tions to Cdes like (Pa­trick) Chi­na­masa (sec­re­tary for le­gal af­fairs sec­re­tary), (Saviour) Ka­sukuwere (sec­re­tary for com­mis­sariat) while I will han­dle ad­min­is­tra­tion is­sues.

“The var­i­ous sec­re­taries we have in the Polit­buro will come up with their own re­ports which feed into the Cen­tral Com­mit­tee re­port. The Cen­tral Com­mit­tee re­port is then printed with a fore­word from the Pres­i­dent and this will then cre­ate the con­tents of our dis­cus­sions at the con­fer­ence,” said Cde Chombo.

Polit­buro mem­bers are ex­pected pre­side over the pro­vin­cial in­ter-dis­trict meet­ings.

Cde Chombo said peo­ple’s wishes had to be cap­tured in the res­o­lu­tions.

“Districts met be­cause they are the grass­roots, they are the ones with is­sues,” he said.

“They meet to ven­ti­late those is­sues and after that, they put the is­sues to­gether at pro­vin­cial level. Noth­ing will be left out, the wishes and as­pi­ra­tions will be taken on board.”

The Masvingo con­fer­ence will be held un­der the theme, “Mov­ing with Zim-As­set in Peace and Unity”.

Ac­cred­i­ta­tion of del­e­gates at dis­trict level is un­der­way in sev­eral prov­inces.

Cen­tral Com­mit­tee, Polit­buro mem­bers and the me­dia would be ac­cred­ited at Masvingo Polytech­nic Col­lege.

More than 6 000 del­e­gates are ex­pected to grace the event.

Zanu-PF needs about $4 mil­lion to suc­cess­fully host the con­fer­ence and has made sig­nif­i­cant progress in mo­bil­is­ing the re­quired re­sources.
