By Providence Maraneli

THE newly installed ZANU PF Matabeleland south provincial executive met in Gwanda this Monday to deliberate on the state of the party and the upcoming by-elections.

The newly installed Matabeleland south provincial executive says it is determined to change the outlook of the provincial offices and the new members have already pledged to offset the debt of 400 000 Zimbabwe dollars owed to various service providers.

“If you can look at our offices you can’t say these are offices of a ruling party, we have made decisions to make sure we refurbish this and a loan plan to urgently start constructing our offices, we also inherited debts totalling to ZWL$400 000 and I am happy to say that we have already received pledges to that will cater for that. We want to make sure that this province feels the presence of the party,” said Mangaliso Ndlovu, ZANU PF Matabeleland South Provincial Chairman.

On the forthcoming by-elections, the chairman said the province has no option but to deliver.

“People have submitted their CVs and we will contest in all the vacant seats available. The election will be an indication of how we are likely to perform so that we take corrective measures well ahead. This is a very important exercise because it measures the appetite that our structures have.”

The ruling party will conduct primary elections this Thursday to come up with candidates for the by-elections slated for the 26th of March this year.

Matabeleland South province has seven vacant council seats.
