Addressing youths gathered for an inter-district meeting in Gweru yesterday, ahead of the Midlands Presidential Youth Interface meeting to be held on September 2, 2017, Zanu-PF National Youth League chairperson Kudzai Chipanga said that only President Robert Mugabe’s candidature is guaranteed in 2018 and the rest have to fight for their positions.
Let me clarify this today, as youths, we have agreed that only the President and First Secretary of the party has secured his candidature come 2018. All other party cadres should know that if they were not doing anything for the people who elected them into their respective positions, we will not hesitate to vote them out. Let us remove all leaders who do not represent the people who chose them in their respective constituencies. It is high time that we get away from the system of having this and that constituency reserved for this or that chef. No! We want political empowerment. The President has set precedence and we have competent youthful MPs. Gone are the days when youths are known only for toyi-toying. Youths should have a fair share of constituencies in 2018. Only one person is safe on the seats and that is our President, Cde Robert Mugabe.
