ZILIWACO launches ‘Bereka Mwana’ programme in Mashonaland Central

Story by Tapiwa Machemedze

War collaborators have pledged to rally behind President Emmerson Mnangagwa and the ruling ZANU PF party in the general elections expected to be held in August this year.

War collaborators under the auspices of the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Collaborators Trust (ZILIWACO) launched the ‘Bwereka Mwana Tiende Kuno-Voter Programme’ in Bindura this Tuesday to drum up support for the ruling ZANU PF party in the general elections set for August. 

“We have come to mobilise war collaborators and their children and grandchildren to vote for Zanu PF and President Mnangagwa in the forthcoming elections,” said ZILIWACO Deputy National Chairperson, Cde Josephine Gandiya.

“We deemed it fit to have a programme that we christened ZILIWACO Bereka Mwana Tiende Kuno-voter. We have a total figure of 20 000 war collaborators but including children and grandchildren we are about 160 000 votes that we are promising,” noted ZILIWACO Provincial chairperson, Cde Rashiwe Shangwa.

Expectations are that the ruling party will retain all 18 seats in the legislature allotted to Mashonaland Central Province.

“Mashonaland Central has always been working hard for the party judging from the election result of 2018 where we voted 366 000 votes and won in all constituencies, meaning we hold our party in high esteem. Therefore, the war collaborators have said we cannot lose what we have won before,” added Mashonaland Central Minister of State for Provincial Affairs and Devolution, Senator Monica Mavhunga.

War collaborators from the province’s 8 districts attended the provincial launch.
