In an interview with The Herald, Zanu-PF youth league secretary Pupurai Togarepi said they are targeting 30 000 youths for President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s interface convention. The convention is set to be held at the open space behind Mkoba Teachers’ College in Gweru on Thursday.
Togarepi said they have invited students, young business people, miners, artists, churches and those living with disabilities. He said they are also expecting youths from international branches like South Africa and the United Kingdom. Said Togarepi:
It is not going to be a rally, but real interface and the President will address the youths as a group at the end. The youths will be communicating directly with their leader. Some youths have challenges of not going to school, some might be in churches and lack economic support and some are failing to register companies while others are failing to make it because of corruption in certain areas. We expect the President to proffer solutions to some of the issues which are affecting the youths to develop themselves.
