ZANU PF youths have vowed to work tirelessly to mobilise five million votes needed by the Party to resoundingly win the forthcoming plebiscite.
Speaking to this publication yesterday, the newly elected ZANU PF Mashonaland Central Provincial Youth League Political Commissar Cde Macdonald Mbungo said the youths in the province were ready to mobilise voters for the party and President Mnangagwa.
“The five million votes for the party and President Mnangagwa is an achievable feat. As the youths, we are going to leave no stone unturned as we mobilise for the party. As the Youth League Political Commissar, I will work with other provincial members and party structures to see that we grow the party’s support base in the province,” said Mbungo.
Mbungo added that the youths were the vanguard of the party and they had a task of marketing ZANU PF as a party of first choice that is able to care for the young people’s needs.
“As the youths, we are the marketing personnel for the party. The youths are convinced that President Mnangagwa is the best option for the country in 2023. His legacies cannot be forgotten in a hurry. We are sure that renewing his mandate in 2023 will benefit everyone in the country. In the next coming elections, we expect to double the number of votes the party got in the province during 2018 elections as a lot of youths are now warming up to the ZANU PF policies of empowerment,” added Cde Mbungo.
Mbungo added that as the youths, they have seen that the opposition parties in Zimbabwe have nothing to offer to the electorate as it was an elitist party controlled by the West. He added that young people should give their votes to ZANU PF as the opposition parties in the country, particularly the MDC Alliance, have no empowerment programmes for the youths.
According to Mbungo, the good works being done by the President Mnangagwa and the party are enough to convince fence sitters and first time voters to opt for ZANU PF in the next elections.
ZANU PF is targeting at least five million votes in the next election and the party has already informed that it has since registered over four million members by end of December last year.
