A ZANU PF official said that the ruling party is the only party that is people-centred, listens to people’s concerns and is interested in meeting them.
ZANU PF acting secretary for Administration Patrick Chinamasa told The Herald that the main challenger, MDC leader Nelson Chamisa, spends his time organising disruption demonstrations and lobbying for more sanctions to be imposed on the country. He said:
It is like Zanu PF is the only party interested in meeting the people.
I do not see any other party which seems interested in meeting the people, addressing their concerns, listening to them and seeking to find solutions to their concerns.
Currently, no other party in Zimbabwe is people-centred, except Zanu PF. The main challenger is a party which spends most of its times organising demonstrations, travelling all over the world lobbying for the imposition of sanctions.
Chinamasa urged Chamisa to abandon his ‘antics’ and participate in meaningful dialogue under the Political Actors Dialogue (POLAD).
The ZANU PF politburo member added that although sanctions had caused untold suffering to the people since their imposition two decades ago, the ruling party would not tire until their effects were mitigated.
