Social media platforms crucial in highlighting works of Second Republic

By Gay Matambo

THE ruling Zanu PF party’s Cyber Team took its countrywide ED Works Road Shows to Masvingo Province this Monday where key life-changing projects under the Second Republic were exhibited.

Driven by the notion, enlightenment leads to appreciation, the ZANU PF Cyber Team is on a drive to increase public awareness and appreciation of developmental projects under the Second Republic, as part of efforts to drum up support for the ruling party ahead of the 2023 Harmonised Elections.

“We seek to popularise the works of our President so that we can contribute towards mobilising 5 million votes ahead of the 2023 elections for the President and ZANU PF. We have realised that over 1 000 life changing projects have been done by the Second Republic and we want the nation and especially those in marginalised areas of the country to know,” said Cde Jones Musara, National Chairman ZANU PF Cyber Team.

Chitepo School of Ideology Principal Cde Munyaradzi Machacha noted that it is crucial for the Cyber Team to grasp the ideological standing of the revolutionary party.

Everything is possible Cdes, we have struggled for a long time with sanctions, we can still succeed as a country. I urge you not to give up. Victory is near and our government is working tirelessly, as you can see by what the cyber team is showcasing here today. Let us go through this last mile together so that we can all succeed in developing our country. I have no doubt that we can do it,” noted Cde Munyaradzi Machacha, Principal of Chitepo School Ideology.

ZANU PF Bulawayo Provincial Chairman Cde Jabulani Sibanda spoke about information dissemination strategies during the liberation struggle and how social media has taken over that role in the Second Republic era.

During the armed struggle we had only one radio station in Zambia that gave us 30 minutes, that was to recruit and give people reports of what happened. Same applies in Mozambique we had 30 minutes only but now Varakashi system is multiplying the ability to communicate amongst ourselves as a party and amongst our nationals. It is bringing people together and highlighting what government has achieved,” he explained.

The ED Works Road Show which was attended by hundreds of ZANU PF supporters and empowerment lobby groups from across Masvingo province, is a countrywide initiative.
