The ruling ZANU PF party has targeted the training of at least 60 000 members in Bulawayo province at the Herbert Chitepo Ideological College by 2023.
The principal of the Herbert Chitepo Ideological College, Munyaradzi Machacha, told a party meeting at the Bulawayo provincial headquarters on Sunday that the training will restore unity within the party. He said:
We are looking at training at least 60 000 party members at our school of ideology and so far, we have trained 118 trainers.
This training is meant to bring back Zanu-PF ideologies to the cadres so that we bring back our political culture, and it will also encourage cohesion in the party.
The Herbert Chitepo School of Ideology was established by the party to inculcate its ideology in its adherents.
The school was named after the late nationalist and ZANU chairman, Herbert Chitepo, who was assassinated on March 18, 1975, in Lusaka, Zambia at the height of the liberation struggle.
