WOMEN have been challenged to educate youths on the history and legacy of the revolutionary Zanu PF party ahead of the March 26 by-elections and the 2023 harmonised polls.
The Zanu PF Women’s League led by its Political Commissar, Senator Maybe Mbowa took the party’s campaign to Chivi South and Mwenezi East constituencies in Masvingo province this Thursday to mobilise support for the party’s by-election candidates.
The women’s league says there is a need for youths to be enlightened on how Zimbabwe was liberated from colonial rule for them to vote wisely during the upcoming elections.
“Women you are the mothers of these children. Take your time to teach them as you gave birth to them and they will listen to you. We have noticed that most young people are the ones who support the opposition parties, they do not know what war veterans went through to liberate this country, therefore, teach them,” said Senator Mbowa.
“I know women will vote for the ruling party because they have seen what ZANU PF is doing in their lives. Political economy empowerment by the year 2030 will see every woman at a better level,” said Irene Mutumbwa, ZANU PF Women’s League Secretary for External Relations.
The need for unity as election day draws closer was high on the agenda at the Chivi South rally.
“Everyone in the party has a role to play and we all have to unite and build our country. We are the owners of the country and I urge Chivi South communities to remain united and rally behind the ruling party as it has the electorate at heart,” said Honourable Ezra Chadzamira, Masvingo Minister of State for Provincial Affairs and Devolution.
“I would like to thank the women’s league for all it has taught us today. We are going to ask you to come back again to teach other women from other districts what you have taught us today,” said Robson Mavhenyengwa, ZANU PF Masvingo Provincial Chairperson.
Meanwhile, the events saw 200 women drawn from Chivi South and Mwenezi East constituencies who participated in a training programme to produce lotions and detergents applauding the ruling party for rolling out these life-changing projects.
Munyaradzi Zizhou and Master Makope are the ruling party’s candidates for Chivi South and Mwenezi East constituencies respectively in the March 26 by-elections.
