Improving livelihoods a priority – President Mnangagwa

Story by Josephine Mugiyo

ZANU PF President and First Secretary, Cde Emmerson Mnangagwa says the ruling party is giving priority to improving livelihoods of the citizenry across the country.

He was speaking at the 374th Ordinary Session of the ZANU PF Politburo held at the party headquarters in Harare this Thursday.

President Mnangagwa began by inviting the Politburo to observe a minute of silence in honour of the late President of the Republic of Namibia, Dr Hage Geingob as well as other heroes and heroines who passed on throughout the country since the last session of the Politburo was held.

In his keynote address, President Mnangagwa commended the politburo, party membership and the election mobilisation teams for the victory in by-elections held earlier this year.

The President went on to implore the party to continue fulfilling the needs of the people.

“During and after election seasons, we must continue to deliver on the needs of our people and accelerate our economic development agenda. No matter the hurdles we may face, our people deserve a higher quality of life. This is what holistic independence, freedom and sovereignty should translate to. We are a people’s party, hence our enduring revolutionary mantra of development that leaves ‘No One and No Place Behind’.

“This is the revolutionary compass that should always guide all government and party projects and programmes. In this spirit, this year’s independence celebrations will be held in Murambinda, Manicaland province. The event will yet again allow us to celebrate our rich liberation war history with ordinary people at the grassroots level, who remain the true beneficiaries of all our efforts.”

President Mnangagwa further emphasised the importance of pursuing the inclusive development agenda.

He said, “Indeed, our citizens in both rural and urban areas, growth pound and urbanised settlements must be organised, mobilised and facilitated to participate in our party’s programmes and projects. We must as a party and country not be distracted or pre-occupied by the sideshows of neo-imperialist political puppets. ZANU PF keeps marching forward, modernising and industrialising our beloved motherland, Zimbabwe.”

The effects of climate change continue to affect the globe and Zimbabwe has not been spared. With predictions of poor harvests in the summer cropping season, President Mnangagwa said the ZANU PF-led government has already set in place plans for the winter cropping season.

“The outlook for the 2023/2024 summer agriculture cropping season is a testimony of the glaring negative impacts associated with climate change. So far, the ZANU PF government has already set plans in motion for the winter cropping season. We are a nation capable of feeding ourselves,” said the President.

President Mnangagwa emphasised the need for unity, peace and stability which he cited as key ingredients for national development.
