ZANU PF Presidium is a tried and tested breed: Mutsvangwa

Political Reporter

ZANU PF Spokesperson, Cde Christopher Mutsvangwa has described President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s in coming Presidium as a tried and tested breed of cadres that has a record of delivering dating back to the days of Zimbabwe’s liberation struggle.

Speaking to the media soon after the conclusion of the ZANU PF 7th National People’s Congress in Harare last Saturday, Mutsvangwa said President Mnangagwa’s team was constituted of members whom he trusts and has also worked with for many years.

“Today (last Saturday) the President has chosen his Presidium which consists of tried and tested cadres of the party whom he has worked with for many years. We are dealing with a tried and tested team of people who trust each other. A team which has gone through thick and thin first for the liberation of Zimbabwe, secondly for the consolidation of the independence of Zimbabwe and thirdly for the delivery of prosperity to Zimbabwe,” said Mutsvangwa.

Mutsvangwa also applauded the support and solidarity accorded to Zimbabwe by foreign delegates who all called for the immediate removal of illegal sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe by United States and Britain. He also added that Britain and America’s attempts to isolate Zimbabwe were fast backfiring on the two super powers.

“The President has also been raising the status and prestige of ZANU PF as has been said by the foreign delegates who came from across the globe and gave resounding speeches in support of their positions on Zimbabwe.

“Also of interest was the rescinding position of those who were advocating for Zimbabwe’s isolation on the international stage. We can now see that basically it is now Washington and London who are in a very invidious position due to their continued pursuit of the illegal sanctions on Zimbabwe,” he said.

A total of 17 delegates from in and out of Africa all pledged to continue calling for the unconditional removal of the illegal sanctions. Of particular interest was the prediction by the representative of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) that President Mnangagwa and ZANU PF were destined to resoundingly win the 2023 Harmonised General Elections.

Meanwhile, the ZANU PF’s Congress which was held under the theme, “Building a Prosperous Zimbabwe, Leaving No One and No Place Behind,” overwhelmingly endorsed President Mnangagwa as that Party’s sole Presidential candidate for the forthcoming elections.
