ZANU PF youths reportedly confronted the party’s Mashonaland East chairperson, Joel Biggie Matiza, over the deteriorating economic situation and warned of social breakdown and chaos if the challenges are not urgently addressed.
Matiza met the ZANU PF youths who were drawn from Marondera Central, West and East at the party’s provincial offices in the town. One of the youths, who was visibly angry said:
We are having a torrid time explaining in areas where we live on how the Zanu PF government is going to address the economic crisis and we have no clue on how to.
Things are getting worse and there is no solution in sight. There is a possibility of violence if this issue is not urgently resolved.
In his address to the restive youths, Matiza, who is the Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Development, said:
President Emmerson Mnangagwa has not rested since he took office and is determined to restore the country’s socio-economic stability.
The price increases are just a passing phase, which will soon come to pass as many initiatives are being put in place to increase production.
