Newly-elected ZANU PF youth leaders will be sent to the party’s Herbert Chitepo School of Ideology for orientation to prepare them to play a key role in the party’s campaigns ahead of the 2023 elections.
The ZANU PF youth leaders were elected at the party’s national youth conference held in Harare last week.
The new-look youth leadership has endorsed President Emmerson Mnangagwa as the ZANU PF 2023 presidential candidate.
Addressing journalists at the party headquarters in Harare on Tuesday, 10 May, ZANU PF commissar Mike Bimha said:
Very soon, we are organising orientation time for them. They will also go through the Chitepo School of Ideology orientation and go through team-building exercises so that they bond and work as a team to campaign for the 2023 general elections.
We will work closely with them because there is a lot of work for us to do in view of the fact that we have an election.
We will give priority to the youth to campaign vigorously for the party and the President.
Gutu West MP and Masvingo provincial youth chairman John Paradza was elected as the ZANU PF Youth League deputy national chairperson.
Meanwhile, Bimha said Mnangagwa will handpick his preferred candidate for the youth league secretary position “when the time is right”. Said Bimha:
There is no definite time frame for the President to announce the candidate befitting for that position.
The President will make his selection when the time is right, and he will then announce who the chosen person is.
