The ruling party, Zanu Pf is reportedly targeting to have a membership of 5 million by the time Zimbabwe will go for general elections in 2023, The Sunday News reports.
This was revealed by the Zanu-PF provincial commissar Cde Maidei Mpala who was speaking after the party’s Provincial Coordinating Committee(PCC) in Bulawayo yesterday. Mpala said Victor Matemadanda taught them how they can attain this:
When we went to Harare to meet the commissar, we were told about the party’s plan to get at least five million members by the time that we go for elections in 2023. We were also taught ways in which this was attainable. The commissar told us that in his first two weeks in office, President Mnangagwa had already outlined his vision for the country and that was a vision tied to the year 2030.
So, when we met the commissar in Harare he wanted to know if we were following in the President’s footsteps. He wanted to know if we had a vision or we were just approaching elections without a necessary strategy. The commissar made it clear that, as a party of the people, we should be in touch with the issues that are really affecting people in Bulawayo because the city has many problems
At the same meeting, the party also selected 9 candidates that will represent the party in the upcoming but suspended council by-elections.
