ZANU PF President and First Secretary Cde Emmerson Mnangagwa says the Women’s League is the nerve centre of the ruling party.

He was addressing the ZANU PF Women’s League National Assembly at the party’s headquarters in Harare this Friday.

Drawn from the country’s ten provinces, the ZANU PF women’s leadership met this Friday to take stock of their performance, among other issues.

They were addressed by the party leadership, with President Mnangagwa emphasising the key role of the women’s league in bolstering the ruling party.

“You’re the heart, liver and blood in the body politic. Without women, the party is dead. It doesn’t matter where, a political party is formidable when backed by women, so I as the President of this revolutionary party, have no doubt of the future of this party. I am very clear in my mind that the women’s league is the nerve centre of the party. If we want the whole party to be vibrant, we must continue to fertilise the centre,” he said.

With the meeting being the first Women’s League National Assembly to be held after the August 23 elections, President Mnangagwa applauded women for their role in mobilising voters.

He said, “I take this opportunity to thank you for your role in the elections last year when we held elections when ZANU PF achieved a resounding victory. During and after the course of the election period, you were bearers of unity, harmony and peace, love and tranquility. I thank you all. If you’re a leader of the party and the women and youth support you, you’ll have already attained victory.”

While collective loyalty is critical, President Mnangagwa put emphasis on the need for individual allegiance.

“Loyalty to the party and leadership does not begin as a collective but begins at individual level. Don’t have loyalty for the party because you’re in a group, have your individual loyalty first,” said the President.

The ZANU PF First Secretary also called for unity among women, encouraging them to support each other in their various service roles.

“Negative traits that lead to the ‘pull-him-down’ syndrome have no place in the party,” he noted.

President Mnangagwa also called on the women’s league to take a leading role in development projects that better livelihoods of the people.
