Zanu-PF Masvingo vows to revamp party, ensure resounding victory
said on Friday. In a telephone interview from Masvingo Zanu-PF provincial chairman, Cde Lovemore Matuke, said the revolutionary machine had been oiled and was now moving with speed to defeat the opponent.
Cde Matuke said the visit by a delegation of senior leaders in the province ironed out the misunderstandings that had stalled progress within the party.
“The arguments we had are over and we are now focusing on reviving the party. The leadership has resolved all the problems amicably.
“As it is we are busy organising the party and we have declared that we will win back all the seats we lost to our opponents,” said Cde Matuke.
He applauded the intervention by senior leadership which he said left the party leaders in the province united.
“We commend the decision taken by our senior leadership led by the National Chairman Cde Simon Khaya Moyo. What is left now is for us to deliver.
“The sincerity of the meeting should be proved by results. We have a lot of work ahead and as a leadership we are committed to developing the party,” he said.
The party had strengthened its structures ahead of the elections which he said he was confident that the party would win.
“Our goal is to win back the 14 seats we lost to the MDC-T in the last election,” said Cde Matuke.
He said the party was already busy mobilising support even before the holding of primary elections.
There had been speculation prior to the team’s visit that the provincial executive was going to be dissolved because it had failed to deal with problems of factionalism.
Cde Khaya Moyo led a team that comprised National Political Commissar Cde Webster Shamu, National Secretary for Administration Didymus Mutasa and Secretary for Security Cde Sydney Sekeramayi which declared that Cde Matuke was still the revolutionary party’s chairman in the province and that Politburo member Cde Dzikamai Mavhaire was the most senior member of the party in the province.
The team met the provincial executive, Politburo members, Central Committee members and the National Consultative Assembly and war veterans.
Cde Matuke called for Unity among party cadres and urged them to defend the revolution.
He said Zanu-PF had a proven record of empowering the masses and said the indigenisation drive was a testimony that the party put the interest of the people first.
“People now know that the two MDCs cannot deliver following their inclusion in the inclusive Government. Zanu-PF has many people centred programmes.
“We have seen the land reform and now it is indigenisation,” he said.
