Speaking during a meeting with ZANU PF delegates who are currently in China, Minister of the International Department of the Communist Party of China Mr. Song Tao encouraged ZANU PF to instill stability in the country and to be people-centric.
His remarks came after ZANU PF had asked the CPC help the party in dealing with the current political and economic crises in the country. Tao remarked:
You should adhere to a people centred development approach, development is by the people for the people.
We take people’s aspirations for a better life as the goal of the whole party.
In development we have always adhered to reform and opening up. We want to emulate development through reform.
We have to strike a balance between stability, reform and development. Without stability there is no development.
Zanu-PF was further urged to show no remorse in fighting corruption. Tao also said that China is booming because it inculcated the spirit of zero tolerance to corruption. He added:
We must have cadres that have professional competency, loyalty and responsibility to implement the right positions of the party.
A party should cause institutional building to manage financial and personal affairs and keep the exercise of power within the cage of institutions.
