Preparations for ZANU PF’s 20th national people’s conference slated for Mashonaland Central province in Bindura are now complete and the province is ready to host the event, Nhau has learnt.
The conference which will run from October, 25-31 comes in the wake of factional fights that have dogged the party in the province as well as in Manicaland.
Speaking after emerging from the conference’s local organizing committee meeting last Friday, ZANU PF Mashonaland Central chairperson Kazembe Kazembe said all was in order and the province was very much excited to host the decision making and reviewing caucus.
He said enough food, accommodation and transport for delegates were already in place but did not block well-wishers to come in with more donations.
This year’s edition of the people’s conference will be held virtually in observance of WHO Covid-19 guidelines restricting gatherings in large numbers.
Only senior and top decision makers in the party convening at Bindura University of Science Education’s Chawagona campus.
“We have secured enough bandwidth to stream the conference across the country since only the Presidium, Politburo and Central Committee members will be at the campus.
For our members, that is the provincial executive, three district coordinating committee members from each district and their coordinators will be at Chipadze High School attending virtually there,” Kazembe said.
Kazembe relayed his gratefulness to companies that donated resources towards the conference including the Grain Millers Association of Zimbabwe (GMAZ) that donated a consignment of consumables.
Amongst the items were 15 000kgs of mealie meal, 3 000kgs of rice, bread (to be supplied during the conference days) and some beans.
GMAZ chairperson Mr. Tafadzwa Musarara said the association was in total support of the liberation party hence the donation.
“We are not ashamed to be supporting ZANU PF, we have been donating to this party and event since 20 years ago.
“We are really humbled to have our donation accepted,” he said. Nhau/Indaba
