Zanu-PF to hold Thank you ral­lies

Sunday News (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page - Wal­ter Mswazie in Masvingo

THE rul­ing Zanu-PF party in Masvingo, will this week hold ral­lies across the province to thank its mem­bers for re­sound­ingly vot­ing for the party dur­ing the 30 July har­monised elec­tions.

Zanu-PF won 25 seats out of 26 Par­lia­men­tar­ian seats dur­ing the elec­tions. Pro­vin­cial chair­man Cde Ezra Chadzam i r a said the party p e r f o rme d ex­cep­tion­ally well in Masvingo that the party mem­bers de­served to be thanked.

“We are go­ing to hold vic­tory cel­e­bra­tions to thank our mem­bers in all seven dis­tricts,” said Cde Chadza­mira.

He said Zanu-PF main­tained its dom­i­nance in the province, save for one con­stituency, Masvingo Ur­ban which was won by MDC Al­liance.

He said this showed that the party’s sup­port base was still strong and ap­pealed to Pres­i­dent Mnan­gagwa to re­ward the province through mas­sive de­vel­op­ment.

“I think our province de­serves to ben­e­fit from mas­sive de­vel­op­ment and with the de­vo­lu­tion con­cept that the coun­try has de­cided to pur­sue, we will not be left out in the new eco­nomic tra­jec­tory.

“We should be re­warded through ben­e­fit­ing from a num­ber of projects such as Tugwi-Mukosi Dam where at least 25 000 hectares of land will be put un­der ir­ri­ga­tion. “There is also the Beit­bridgeChirundu High­way du­al­i­sa­tion project which should be im­ple­mented so that we re­duce road traf­fic ac­ci­dents and also cre­ate jobs for our youths,” he said.

C d e Chadza­mira said mem­bers should fo­cus on sup­port­ing de­vel­op­men­tal ini­tia­tives within their com­mu­ni­ties in line with Pres­i­dent Mnan­gagwa’s call to fo­cus on eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment rather than pol­i­tics.

He said the five-year man­date that Pres­i­dent Mnan­gagwa was given by the peo­ple when he won the elec­tions was meant to steer the coun­try’s econ­omy and the ral­lies were meant to cel­e­brate that.

Pres­i­dent Mnan­gagwa has also said he would visit all prov­inces to thank the na­tion for his vic­tory.

He gar­nered 50,68 of the to­tal vote while his clos­est ri­val, Mr Nel­son Chamisa of MDC Al­liance got 44,3 per­cent.
