Zanu-PF goes on mass mobilisation drive
Harare – The ruling Zanu-PF party on Tuesday launched a national membership mobilisation and registration programme in preparation for harmonised elections next year.
The programme will be carried out in all the country’s 10 provinces with teams comprising of senior Zanu-PF officials and staff members.
In Bulawayo province, secretary for administration and Dr Ignatius Chombo and politburo member Dr David Parirenyatwa would head the exercise while in Harare secretaries for war veterans Dr Sydney Sekeramayi and secretary for the commissariat Savior Kasukuwere would be spearheading it.
Addressing provincial chairpersons, provincial secretaries for administration, commissariat and transport and social welfare, Dr Chombo said planning was essential for the party to win the next election.
“As party leaders you are expected to design programmes in your provinces to mobilise the people,” he said.
“These action programmes are strategic if we are to win the 2018 elections.”
Dr Chombo emphasised the need for discipline and accountable use of party resources during the course of the campaign period.
He said systematic record keeping, effective and proper communication were vital tools in the running of the party.
“Accountability of party resources and assets is essential especially now that preparations are underway for the 2018 harmonized elections,” he said.
Dr Chombo said all pending disciplinary cases should also be dealt with to ensure that the party was united going into the next elections.
Meanwhile, Dr Chombo announced that this year’s annual national people’s conference would be held in Gwanda, Matabeleland South province.
“As usual all provinces are supposed to assist in resource mobilisation so that, as always, this event is a success.
“May you all trigger the various systems so that the party machinery starts to work now.”
