President Mnangagwa in his message to the War Veterans as he prepares for the 2023 election urged the War vets to display their Wartime Vibrancy and work towards mobilising more people to join the ruling party before the elections, New Zimbabwe reports.
President Mnangagwa said this while addressing the Zanu PF Central Committee members on Saturday when he said:
In our political mobilisation matrix, our women and youth leagues must not be left behind. I commend the Youth League for their recent successful mobilisation efforts.
However, much more needs to be done by the Youth League structures at provincial, district, branch and cell levels to encourage their peers to join the party as voters.
To this end, joint grassroots mobilisation activities between leagues of the party and its affiliate organisations must now saturate the political space.
War veterans are challenged to display their unflinching war time vibrancy and mobilisation acumen as we prepare for 2023 elections.
War Veterans have in the past threatened to start a war if the opposition wins the elections and if Zanu PF loses the elections.
The elections are still 28 months away and the government is yet to deliver a lot if not all of their 2018 election promises like better infrastructure, better healthcare, jobs and a better economy. The economy took a turn for the worse just after the 2018 elections and it is still to recover given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
