Zanu-PF Bulawayo province yesterday resolved that the party should not engage in any talks of a government of national unity with MDC Alliance and endorsed President Mnangagwa as the party’s sole presidential candidate in the 2023 elections.
The resolutions were passed during a Bulawayo Provincial Coordinating Committee meeting and will be taken aboard when various thematic committees discuss a range of issues at the National People’s Conference which kicks off next week at Esigodini. The resolutions include the re-introduction of district coordinating committees (DCCs) and finalisation of the vetting exercise of ex-detainees. The resolutions are premised on what would be debated by thematic committees during the conference. Zanu-PF’s Bulawayo provincial secretary for administration Elifas Mashaba said:
We have resolved as Bulawayo province that there won’t be any talk of government of national unity with [MDC Alliance leader, Mr Nelson] Chamisa. We have also endorsed ED as the sole Presidential candidate in 2023. We also resolved that all provincial heroes’ acres should be constantly maintained and refurbished just like the national shrine in Harare. We also made a resolution that our party should strengthen its relations with other liberation movements in the region and internationally as well as engaging leaders in our neighbouring countries about the ill-treatment of Zimbabweans in those countries. We also agreed on the need to decentralise the registry offices so that licences, identity cards and passports can be accessed electronically at either provincial or district level instead of everything being done in Harare.
