President Emmerson Mnangagwa has claimed that the ruling ZANU PF party is fulfilling the promises it made to the electorate ahead of the contested 2018 elections.
Delivering his opening remarks at the ZANU PF 343rd Ordinary Session of the Politburo in Harare on Wednesday, Mnangagwa also announced that Government will next week launch the ambitious Agricultural Recovery Plan. He said:
Government programmes continue to be implemented drawing from the 2018 Party Manifesto. We are delivering on the promises we made to the people. We are course and will never waiver from delivering on our promises. Let our citizens know of these achievements.
The Agriculture Recovery Plan which I will be launching on 26 August, seeks to meet the promise made towards promoting productivity, enhancing support systems and infrastructure and developing markets for our agriculture products to earn foreign currency.
Among the perceived successes made so far, President Mnangagwa highlighted the rationalisation of farm size and the elimination of multiple farm ownership, the signing of the Global Compensation Deed Agreement with the former commercial farmers and road rehabilitation and construction, and the fight against corruption.
He took the opportunity to remind politburo members to remain vigilant by continuing to practice social distancing, good hygiene of handwashing or sanitizing as well as wearing masks in the face of the coronavirus crisis.
