ZANU PF Women’s League champions empowerment

Story by Tambaoga Gora

OVER 5 000 women from across the country have graduated after completing a skills and entrepreneurship development programme courtesy of the ZANU PF Women’s League.

The ZANU PF Women’s League was in Norton this Thursday for the graduation of more than 500 women who were trained in various life skills programmes.

“I would like to express my gratitude, over what we have been taught, the products we are now producing have helped us, we are now able to pay school fees for our children, and we can now stand on our own as women so I am very thankful,” said one of the beneficiaries.

Another added, “We were taught as women all that you are seeing on display, we are also going to train other women.”

ZANU PF National Assembly candidate for Norton constituency, Cde Constance Shamu took the opportunity to unpack some of the challenges bedevilling the people of Norton, amid commitment to tackle them.

“We have domestic water challenges here in Norton, yet we feed Harare and then we get water from Harare. We need to fix that as soon as we get into the office,” she said.

ZANU PF Women’s League National Political Commissar, Senator Maybe Mbowa introduced all the party’s candidates for local authority elections and district chairpersons, urging them to join forces and bury the hatchet with primary elections rivals for one cause.

“In ZANU PF we have what we call connectivity, which starts from the district chair. If we lose in your district, it means you did not unite the people as the district chair,” said the Senator.

ZANU PF Women’s League Secretary, Cde Mabel Chinomona congratulated all the women who participated in the skills development initiative and commended the ruling party for championing women empowerment.

“Let me start by thanking you, the people of Norton for electing a female candidate to represent you. We have women who chose to support male candidates instead of their fellow women. We should not do that. We are here as the Women’s League to support her. It’s now time for President Mnangagwa to do wonders for you, you cannot remain with an independent candidate while your water is coming from Harare, what is the problem?. We want to support our President because of his people-centred programmes,” she said.

The women who graduated after the training programme received certificates.
