Zanu PF National Political Commissar who is also the Deputy Minister of Defence and War Veterans Affairs Cde Victor Matemadanda is back at work after being hospitalised last week due to a sudden illness.
Cde Matemadanda this Monday took time out of the office and toured the Harare Central Business District interacting with citizens on their concerns.
ZBC News caught up with the veteran politician at Copa Cabana Bus Terminus where he scoffed at media reports insinuating that he was in a critical condition saying his priority remains that of working for the party and the people of Zimbabwe.
“As you can see I am well I will not spend time entertaining people who have no value in my life. All I can say is that as the party’s political commissar I am committed to working with the people.”
The general public raised concern over the issue of public transport while vendors called for designated places to sell their wares.
“We are tired of the city council which keeps on chasing us from the streets even though they are yet to provide us with alternative places to sell our commodities. The issue of shortage of Zupco buses is another serious issue which needs to be addressed.”
Cde Matemadanda, who was accompanied by ZANU PF provincial Chairman Cde Goodwills Masimirembwa pledged to take citizens’ concerns to the responsible authorities.
