The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Pamela Shumba Se­nior Re­porter

PREPA­RA­TIONS for the Bu­l­awayo Pres­i­den­tial Youth In­ter­face Rally have gath­ered mo­men­tum with the Bu­l­awayo city cen­tre district in­ten­si­fy­ing its mo­bil­i­sa­tion pro­gramme for the event and the forth­com­ing har­monised elec­tions.

The district held a meet­ing on Thurs­day to strate­gise on how to strengthen its struc­tures at cell level, mo­bilise peo­ple for the rally and the voter reg­is­tra­tion pro­gramme ahead of the elec­tions.

The district chair­per­son, Cde An­di­fasi Banda, said he was glad that the district was work­ing well with the youths and other wings in the provin­cial struc­tures in its mo­bil­i­sa­tion drive.

“This meet­ing is meant to re­mind us that we have to con­tinue work­ing to­gether as a team and al­ways re­mem­ber that our goal is to be an or­gan­ised group of peo­ple, make the party lead­er­ship proud and win the elec­tions.

“All of us are part of the mo­bil­i­sa­tion pro­gramme and all of us have to make sure that the Bu­l­awayo Pres­i­den­tial Youth In­ter­face Rally is a suc­cess. Let’s have unity of pur­pose and ex­er­cise max­i­mum dis­ci­pline,” said Cde Banda.

He em­pha­sised the need for ev­ery party mem­ber to por­tray Pres­i­dent Mu­gabe’s “blem­ish­less” im­age and push the Zanu-PF agenda of win­ning the elec­tions.

He urged youths to shun fac­tion­al­ism and trib­al­ism.

The district’s po­lit­i­cal com­mis­sar Cde God­frey Masanha em­pha­sised the need for party mem­bers to regis­ter to vote.

“The na­tional po­lit­i­cal com­mis­sar Cde Saviour Ka­sukuwere has given each and ev­ery one of us the task to mo­bilise peo­ple for reg­is­tra­tion. To­mor­row we’re go­ing out to the peo­ple to start the mo­bil­i­sa­tion process.

“We need to ed­u­cate peo­ple out there on the voter reg­is­tra­tion pro­gramme and make sure that we’re all ready for the elec­tions,” said Cde Masanha.

The party’s wel­fare and trans­port sec­re­tary in the district Cde Ray­mond Mu­tomba said those, who do not regis­ter to vote will be de­stroy­ing the party.

“Pol­i­tics is about num­bers and vot­ing. As the Zim­babwe Elec­toral Com­mis­sion launches its voter reg­is­tra­tion pro­gramme let’s take ad­van­tage of it and regis­ter to vote.

“Those who don’t have iden­tity doc­u­ments should also take ad­van­tage of the iden­tity doc­u­ment reg­is­tra­tion,” said Cde Mu­tomba.

The meet­ing was at­tended by the provin­cial lead­er­ship and district mem­bers and for­mer chair­per­sons of the district.
