THE Nketa community in Bulawayo has been implored to support the ZANU PF candidate in the December 9 by-elections as the ruling party works on consolidating its power base.

Drumming up support for ZANU PF Nketa candidate Cde Albert Mavunga at a rally in held at Nketa Hall this Friday, ZANU PF Vice President and Second Secretary Cde Kembo Mohadi rallied the electorate to vote for the ruling party to propel the development agenda.

“Bulawayo people are not the problem and the blame is on the local party leaders who have failed to explain our approach to development because we are in the process of ensuring that our people own the means of production and focus on beneficiation and the promotion of value chains which is what all Zimbabweans want and so is Bulawayo and there is no way the people of Bulawayo would not support us yet there is a constancy of ideas and ZANU PF is delivering in its promises,” he said.

He further stated that the Second Republic is on an aggressive drive to transform people’s lives, adding that the focus now is on the beneficiation of local resources such as gold, lithium, platinum and chrome, among others.

“Our approach to development now is that of beneficiation and promoting value addition so Bulawayo can’t be left out on this but for us as leaders, we need your support also so that we are one family under ZANU PF then we work together on programmes that we would have agreed upon, as a party we are concerned about Bulawayo that is why we are bringing the Zambezi water to deal with the challenges you are facing because it’s our responsibility as a government to provide that resource,” he said.

Vice President Mohadi noted the need for unity of purpose in the party’s leadership structure in Bulawayo.

“As the leadership you have to work together and support your chairman so that you build a strong party and win elections and stop working in different directions and name-dropping to intimidate each other,” he said.

The December 9 by-elections were triggered by the recalling of legislators by Citizens Coalition for Change Interim Secretary General Sengezo Tshabangu.
