PRES­I­DENT Em­mer­son Mnan­gagwa has within a few months of his in­au­gu­ra­tion turned around the eco­nomic for­tunes of the coun­try show­ing his com­mit­ment to trans­form the lives of Zim­bab­weans, Zanu-PF Polit­buro mem­ber Cde Cain Mathema has said.

Ad­dress­ing a Zanu-PF Mata­bele­land North pro­vin­cial co­or­di­nat­ing com­mit­tee meet­ing on Wed­nes­day, Cde Mathema said the Pres­i­dent has within a short pe­riod of time at­tracted mas­sive in­vest­ment into the coun­try, com­pleted long un­fin­ished projects while es­tab­lish­ing new ones.

Cde Mathema said such de­vel­op­ments should be ex­plained to the peo­ple as Zanu-PF rolls out its campaign ahead of the na­tional elec­tions.

“Wher­ever we go let us tell the peo­ple what the Pres­i­dent is do­ing for the peo­ple. You must know what the Gov­ern­ment is do­ing for the peo­ple so that you tell the peo­ple what the Pres­i­dent is do­ing for them and for the de­vel­op­ment of their ar­eas,” he said.

Cde Mathema cited among other projects, the new railway line link­ing Hwange to Harare through Binga and Gokwe, the re­cently opened Lu­pane pass­port of­fice, a new sub­urb in Tsholot­sho that was cre­ated for vil­lagers who were af­fected by floods.

He also men­tioned the $740 mil­lion min­ing deal in Lu­pane, a coal mine to be es­tab­lished in Binga and the $1,4 bil­l­lion Ka­ma­tivi Mine re­open­ing deal as some of the projects that Pres­i­dent Mnan­gagwa has ini­ti­ated to­wards the de­vel­op­ment of the econ­omy.

Cde Mathema said the Pres­i­dent had told him that he would com­mis­sion the Tsholot­sho houses and en­sure con­struc­tion of the Mata­bele­land North pro­vin­cial hos­pi­tal starts this year.

“If you look at the $11 bil­lion in­vest­ment that the Pres­i­dent has at­tracted, most of it is for Mata­bele­land North. If you are a leader in the party and don’t know what the Gov­ern­ment is do­ing then leave your po­si­tion. Go to the peo­ple, door to door and ex­plain to them what their Gov­ern­ment is do­ing for them,” he said.

Ad­dress­ing the same meet­ing, the Zanu-PF Mata­bele­land North pro­vin­cial chair­per­son Cde Richard Moyo called on mem­bers to de­sist from spread­ing false­hoods that that there was im­po­si­tion of can­di­dates in the prov­ince.

He called on mem­bers, in­clud­ing those who lost in the pri­maries, to fo­cus their en­er­gies on cam­paign­ing for the party ahead of na­tional elec­tions.

“There is no win­ner or loser. We are all Zanu-PF un­der the lead­er­ship of Pres­i­dent Mnan­gagwa,” he said.

“Let us go out there and campaign for Pres­i­dent Mnan­gagwa and all those can­di­dates that won in the pri­mary elec­tions,” said Cde Moyo.
