Zanu-PF Politburo member Chris Mutsvangwa said the party is aiming to reclaim support in urban constituencies as it sells President Mnangagwa’s transformational vision of growth and industrialisation.
Mutsvangwa is part of the team leading the ongoing restructuring in Harare after President Mnangagwa recently disbanded party structures in the capital and in the second city of Bulawayo. He Mutsvangwa is leading the exercise in Zone Four comprising of the northern suburbs, Hatcliffe and parts of Westgate in Harare. Mutsvangwa said previously, there had been no package for urban dwellers as Zanu-PF mostly addressed issues to do with people in rural areas. Mutsvangwa said Mnangagwa is the first Zanu-PF leader to offer a package for urban dwellers. Said Mutsvangwa:
The first President to put a package (for the urban populace) is ED, essentially by being pro-business, going for Special Economic Zones, by reforming the currency sector. Houses are not the distinguishing factor of urbanisation because in rural areas there are also houses. The distinguishing factor of urbanisation is industry — factories. What is a town? A town is a place where you process goods on a scale which makes it possible to supply a market through mass production. That’s what a town is. If you miss that point, then it’s not a town.
