President Emmerson Mnangagwa has challenged the ruling ZANU PF to see beyond winning the 2023 elections saying that a transformation of lives was the main objective.
He made these remarks while addressing delegates at the ZANU PF 18th Annual People’s Conference slated to run from Thursday to this Sunday.
He said the party leadership at various levels made people-oriented resolutions which should guide the governing party next year and yonder. He said:
Victory in the 2023 elections should never be seen as an end in itself, but merely as a means to ensure that the will, development and prosperity of the majority of our people is guaranteed.
Besides being the party of liberation, we are the party of our future.
His remarks come amidst socioeconomic and political crises which some say portray a mismatch between what the ruling party promised in its manifesto before the 2018 elections.
Zimbabwean politicians and others in African countries have been neglecting their preelection promises, being seasonal, that is, appearing and reappearing during election time and then disappear during “off-season”.
As a result of this behaviour, their preelection plans remain unattainable hence the living standards of the electorate remain very low.
