Yesterday President Robert Mugabe handed over 13 Ford Ranger vehicles to war veterans through their minister, Tshinga Dube, at the Zanu PF headquarters in Harare before a politburo meeting. NewsDay reports that more than 400 top-of-the-range off-road vehicles worth more than $20 million are expected.
Sources interviewed by NewsDay revealed that the next delivery was for the youth and women’s leagues before provincial executive structures get vehicles. According to the sources, the youth league will get 20 vehicles, with 10 being distributed to provinces, while 10 will remain at the party’s headquarters in Harare.
The women’s league will also get 20 vehicles to be distributed along the same lines as the youth league’s. Each province would receive 20 twin cab trucks for the 2018 election campaign. However Youth league secretary for finance, Tongai Kasukuwere yesterday declined to shed light on the matter, referring all questions to Zanu PF secretary for transport, Oppah Muchinguri.
