Ruling ZANU PF party to prioritise urban renewal

Story by Wellington Makonese

THE ruling ZANU PF party has pledged to spearhead urban renewal in the wake of the rot in the City of Harare which has gone unchecked for more than two decades under opposition leadership.

In his first media briefing of the year, ZANU PF Spokesperson Ambassador Christopher Mutsvangwa said Operation Chenesa Harare indicates the ruling party’s commitment to urban development.

“The past two decades have shown us what the MDC and CCC are capable of doing to run down services. If they can’t manage a townhouse what about the whole nation, this is why there is Operation Chenesa Harare which will go to other areas, as ZANU PF we are prepared to develop the urban settlements,” he said.

The ruling party is geared towards increasing economic activity with neighbouring countries.

He added, “The focus is on increasing investments ZANU PF policy thrust is to increase economic activity and has done so, expansion is on other areas like construction of terminals at Beira to boost trade with Mozambique.”

Ambassador Mutsvangwa applauded South Africa for its stance on the Gaza attacks while congratulating the African National Congress for its 112th anniversary.

“We are proud of South Africa whose stance is against genocides in Gaza, they have raised the global conscience in solidarity with the people of Palestine. We also take this opportunity to congratulate the ANC which will be celebrating its 112th anniversary on Saturday. The President Cde ED Mnangagwa will send his message to the party that has contributed to national consciousness,” he said.

Ambassador Mutsvangwa also indicated that the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association will conduct elections this year on a date to be advised.
