ZANU PF secretary for administration, Obert Mpofu has said that the ruling party’s People’s Conference which starts on Thursday at Goromonzi High School, Mashonaland East will focus on bread and butter issues.
Speaking to the Daily News in an exclusive interview on Monday, Mpofu said that the conference had already begun in Harare with the politburo setting the tone for the indaba. He said:
The economy is our major focus. We are going to review our performance in this area. We will talk about the issues of prices and basic commodities that people have been grappling with and will come up with a lasting solution.
The conference comes when Zimbabwe is facing a number of challenges including electricity shortages, inflation, fuel shortages, scarcity of foreign currency and severe starvation.
Economic growth has slowed down and living standards have increasingly become poor as the general populace can no longer afford basic commodities due to erosion of salaries by the soaring inflation.
