THE ZANU PF Women’s League executive has called for unity of purpose as the department works towards the total political and socio-economic empowerment of every woman by 2030.
The League’s executive met in Harare this Wednesday to launch the 2022 Women’s Affairs Department Work Plan.
The meeting also saw the orientation of new provincial chairladies from the party’s 10 provinces, who were recently elected in the provincial elections held last December.
ZANU PF Secretary for Women’s Affairs, Cde Mabel Chinomona underscored the need for efficient structures that will implement the work plan, particularly as the party is campaigning for upcoming March 26 by-elections.
“As women, we need to work vigorously to ensure that we attract and recruit more party members for us to garner five million votes for our President in next year’s elections, not forgetting the upcoming by-elections. It is us women who drive ZANU PF to victory and we cannot do this without us being united and empowered both financially and politically,” she said.
Strengthening of grassroot structures and leaving no woman behind was the message from the ZANU PF Women’s League Secretary for Administration, Cde Monica Mutsvangwa.
“As you know, it’s us women who steer the party and the onus is on us to ensure that we mobilise people to support the ruling party, especially now as we head towards by-elections slated for March and next year for the Presidential elections. The Second Republic has been on a development trajectory as you have seen. Roads are being done, the vaccination drive was a success as we managed to vaccinate over eight million people,” said Senator Mutsvangwa.
The National Executive Meeting also saw the party’s ten provinces’ chairladies giving reports on developments and projects being implemented across the country.
