The ruling party is leaving no stone unturned it its quest to garner at least five million votes in harmonised elections set for next year with the focus on strengthening its structures from cell level.

ZANU PF National Political Commissar, Cde Mike Bimha told ZBC News on the sidelines of an induction workshop in Matabeleland South Province that the ruling party will hold a National Cell Day, to reinvigorate party cells which are the primary recruitment structures.

“We are not taking 2023 lightly, we want everyone to understand that cells are our alpha and omega. Everything starts in a cell. We want to hold a National Cell Day to set the correct recruitment tone for our members,” he said.

Cde. Bimha also implored party youths to ride on infrastructural development success stories of the Second Republic.

“We are happy that the recent party restructuring has seen more youthful faces taking positions of responsibility in the provinces. This is commendable as they are the future of ZANU PF,” he added.
