SERVICE delivery is at the centre of the Zanu PF by-election campaign as the revolutionary party seeks to reclaim the urban vote.
Of the 28 parliamentary seats to be contested on March 26, 19 are in urban areas and Zanu PF is leaving no stone unturned in ensuring that the urban electorate is back in its ranks.
For the revolutionary party, it is not by coincidence that the President and First Secretary of the Zanu PF, Cde Emmerson Mnangagwa will begin his star rallies in Harare metropolitan province as he takes his message centred on service delivery to the people of Zimbabwe.
The roads refurbishment programme and the economic stabilisation strides are some of the key deliverables that Zimbabweans have witnessed, and this weekend’s rally will allow him to share with the electorate more things to come.
“We want to thank that physical launch will be done in Epworth, as a province we must mobilise strongly such that the rally becomes a success. As Harare province, we will be in Epworth on Friday to mobilise people ahead of the Saturday rally,” said Godwills Masimirembwa, Zanu-PF’s Harare Provincial chairman.
There are 12 constituencies up for grabs in Harare metropolitan province and Cde Masimirembwa is confident of victory for the party.
“We are serious about attendance. We have so far covered nine constituencies and three DCC’s, verifying party structures, thus the exercise. We want to win come 26 March, 27 March we must deliver seats to the President, not excuses, we must mobilise our people to register to vote as they will vote in 2023,” he said.
108 council seats will also be contested countrywide on March 26.
