The Zanu-PF Mashonaland West Youth League has thrown its weight behind President Mnangagwa’s move to initiate dialogue with all political parties and other interested players as key in engendering prosperity.
The youths said national renaissance should underpin the national dialogue, saying it could be used as a platform to fight the West’s regime change agenda.
In a statement after a provincial youth executive meeting in Chinhoyi last week, provincial secretary for administration Cde Ability Gandawa said President Mnangagwa would steer Zimbabwe towards an upper middle income country by 2030.
“In view of the uncalled for disturbances, we commend President Mnangagwa for calling for national dialogue and the executive appreciates like-minded Zimbabweans who want to see the country prosper by engaging in this dialogue,” he said.
“In the spirit of our national dialogue, we encourage all concerned parties to be led by national renaissance and not by Western forces.”
Cde Gandawa said while Zimbabwe was facing many challenges, the disposition to violence by the MDC Alliance and its civil organisations allies was not a solution.
The MDC Alliance and its partners last month led violent demonstrations that led to the destruction of property worth of millions.
Cde Gandawa said world economic fundamentals were changing and Zimbabwe was not the only country facing socio-economic challenges.
The country, he said, would eventually overcome the challenges. The Youth League provincial executive endorsed the vote of no confidence motion by the National Executive Council on five members including national secretary Cde Pupurai Togarepi, his deputy Cde Lewis Matutu and three others.
The executive members are being accused of incompetence, gross misconduct and disloyalty, among other allegations.
“The Mashonaland West executive calls upon all Zanu-PF members to support the decision made by the national executive of the Youth League to reorganise its structure to suit the aspirations of the party which is to support the President in making Zimbabwe great again,” said Cde Dandawa.
“To this end, the executive calls on the National Disciplinary Committee to immediately review and conclude the matter, to discharge members working against the vision of the President.”
The youths affirmed their support for President Mnangagwa and the policies he is pursuing to resolve the country’s economic challenges.
To that end, Cde Gandawa said youths should attend “Thank You” Rallies lined up, saying they would actively participate in the mobilisation of people to the rallies.
