Addressing party members at Davies Hall here yesterday, the party’s national political commissar Cde Webster Shamu said a development committee would be set up to look into issues affecting residents.
He said Zanu-PF had analysed 2008 election results and resolved that the party should be more prepared for the next elections.
“The results should reflect what political parties are doing on the ground. Now that people have seen the corruption, under development and lack of relationship between them and those they voted for, they are likely to vote more wisely.
“The message to Bulawayo should therefore be taken to them more vigorously in a structured manner so that they make the right decision to vote for Zanu-PF,” he said.
Cde Shamu said Bulawayo residents had realised through experience that there is nothing any other party had to offer better than Zanu-PF as they could now separate propaganda from the truth.
Cde Shamu said the programme would be carried out in all provinces.
“We are not restructuring, but we are scrutinising our structures to ensure that they are properly constituted before we go to our national conference in Gweru this year,” said Cde Shamu.
Bulawayo in December last year should be undertaken countrywide.
Cde Shamu said a copy of a translation of what the Politburo said had been left out in the Copac draft issued to members at the Harare meeting, so that it could be discussed by party members nationwide.
Addressing the same meeting, Zanu-PF national secretary for land reform and resettlement Cde Ignatius Chombo said Bulawayo was not benefiting from national programmes because of political squabbles between the two MDC formations.
“Up to today, the money is still stuck in the hands of Welshman Ncube while Tendai Biti of the other MDC is also not doing enough to ensure funds reach intended beneficiaries.
“The two parties are not working together.”
“Our duty is to ensure that people in urban areas get housing stands in cities or towns they reside in.
