President Emmerson Mnangagwa, the First Secretary of Zanu PF has urged party leaders to co-exist with the electorate and to be alive to their plight
Addressing Central Committee members at the Zanu PF headquarters in Harare today ahead of the official opening of the 18th National People's Conference at Goromonzi High School tomorrow, the President highlighted that the nation`s vision to modernise social services must remain clear.
“I urge you to be leaders who co-exist with the people and be alive to their plight. In the liberation struggle the people were the water and that should guide us. Let us be leaders of integrity and shun corruption and greediness. I exhort us to continue to be exemplary leaders and be disciplined. I exhort to exercise utter most vigilance in face of machinations by our enemies.
“Our vision to modernise social services must remain clear to all. This year we introduced austerity measures to bring back our economy on rail. The fundamentals are now in place and we have ended the measures,” he said.
The President further said people should be geared towards poverty eradication. “It is imperative that as we meet, we are all alive to the need for a prosperous nation. There should be no substitute for unity and hard work,” he added.
President Mnangagwa said they introduced a mono currency cognisant of the fact that no country can develop without its currency urging people to put the country on rail to recovery.
