ZANU PF Second Secretary engages Bulilima traditional leaders

By Innocent Nxumalo

Sustainable community development can only be achieved when traditional leaders are involved in programmes being championed by the ZANU PF-led government.

This came out when ZANU PF Second Secretary and Vice President, Cde Kembo Mohadi met the traditional leadership across Matabeleland South, whom he challenged to take ownership of development programmes in their areas.

“It is critical to closely work with traditional leaders if we are to achieve our vision. I am meeting traditional leaders together with elected DCCs. Party leadership should work with traditional leaders so that everyone understands our goal,” said Cde Mohadi.

He said traditional leaders have an undoubted capacity of mobilising masses to register to vote.

“As we tackle strategies of addressing poor voter registration, a closer coordination with Sabhukus and Headmen can see us overcoming this problem. When we engage opinion leaders in the communities, we can have many people participating on national matters.”

Cde Mohadi, who is embarking on a drive to strengthen ZANU PF party cells, is set to further engage DCCs and community leaders in the six other districts of Matabeleland South.
