The Zanu PF Manicaland 21st February Movement fundraising committee has targeted newly-established diamond mining firm, Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Company (ZCDC), to fund President Robert Mugabe’s birthday celebrations set to be held in Matabeleland South province.
During a provincial youth executive meeting in Mutare on Sunday, Manicaland provincial youth chairman, Mubuso Chinguno said:
Today (Sunday), we have met to discuss the birthday of our icon, President Robert Mugabe. He has contributed immensely in our struggle. We want to find ways on how we are going to fundraise. We need buses from schools, we need fuel, so let’s work hard, the fundraising committee. There is the Zimbabwe Consolidation Diamond Company, we should write our letters as early as possible because we want to avoid a situation where they will say that we did not notify them early. In fact, we are targeting most companies around the province.
