ZANU PF today celebrates the resounding victory in the 2018 elections when the people of Zimbabwe trusted the Party to deliver the said promises.
The 2018 elections witnessed ZANU PF garnering two thirds majority in National Assembly and Senate giving the Party a five year mandate to develop the country in not only in peace and security, freedom and democracy, economic and public sector reforms but to also lay a foundation for consistent rapid economic growth. Food and nutrition security, consolidating land ownership and increasing production and productivity were also some of the promises the Party vowed to bring to fruition.
Garnering a Presidential vote of 50, 67 percent, President and First Secretary Cde E.D Mnangagwa trumped MDC Alliance’s Nelson Chamisa who is still trying to wake up from that election loss shock. Chamisa has not rested crying foul over the lost election calling it a stolen election and embarking on demonstrations in numerous efforts to distract President Mnangagwa from fulfilling his promises to the people.
Despite calls by President Mnangagwa to join the Political Actors Dialogue where Chamisa can contribute meaningfully to the development of his country, he has refused to heed to the calls but continues to engage his colonial masters to overthrow the constitutionally elected government.
Over the past years, the ZANU PF Party’s implementing agent, Government has however ensured that various policies made by the Party are implemented such as the construction of various roads, the upgrading of health facilities, the support schemes among them the Presidential Input Support Scheme for farmers for the agriculture sector for the improvement of the livelihoods for the ordinary Zimbabweans.
July 31 is therefore a reminder to the people of Zimbabwe of the day they went out in numbers to affirm their commitment to the people’s Party, ZANU PF and to that Party delivering on the promises.
