Speaking to journalists after being sworn in at State House on Tuesday, Masvingo’s Minister of State for Provincial Affairs Dr Paul Chimedza said his immediate job would be to unite his province.
Chimedza said once that is done there is need to make Masvingo loyal to President Robert Mugabe. Masvingo province has been identified as a problematic for Zanu-PF in terms of factionalism. Said Chimedza:
I think in the short term it’s important to unite the people of Masvingo. I think it’s something that can be done. Once we work together with unity of purpose, the second phase is to make sure that development happens in Masvingo. In the medium term that we develop the province, people see value in the leadership of the province and also it’s important to realise and understand that we have one President in the country and we align to the same. Loyalty is important to the President.
