Zanu PF targets 65 percent vote
Cde Mugwad

Sunday Mail Correspondent

ZANU PF is confident of garnering at least 65 percent of the vote and securing a landslide victory in the 2023 harmonised elections, a senior party official has said.

During the 2018 general elections, President Mnangagwa secured 50,8 percent of the vote while MDC Alliance leader Mr Nelson Chamisa managed 44,3 percent.

In an interview with The Sunday Mail, the ruling party’s Director of Information and Publicity, Cde Tafadzwa Mugwadi, said the projected landslide victory was anchored on the party’s target of five million members by 2023.

Cde Mugwadi said the lofty goal was easily achievable because of President Mnangagwa’s visionary leadership, which is set to usher Zimbabwe to an upper middle-income economy by 2030.

He urged both the party and Government to work hand in glove, and to exercise transparency in order to retain trust of the citizens.

“We are very confident of a resounding victory for President Emmerson Mnangagwa come 2023. We have said that if the President does not win by 65 percent and above we will call it a day, we will have failed to work because the President’s work speaks for itself,” said Cde Mugwadi.

He tore into the opposition MDC Alliance saying their fake abductions had been exposed and their plans for violent demonstrations would not get them votes or bring about change.

Cde Mugwadi said the opposition outfit was “a fallen agenda” whose disastrous infighting would bring votes to the ruling party as citizens do not want to be associated with confusion at a time the economy is on an upward trend.

“There are no abductions that took place, everyone saw the documentary which was aired on ZBC TV. We are aware of the Dr Magombeyi case who also abducted himself — it is unprecedented.

“The MDC Alliance, which had been primed to be the trojan horse of regime change, is waning and splitting on a daily basis, there is a circus at Harvest House. Now they are trying to resuscitate a fallen agenda that has lost basis by faking abductions, we have an efficient law enforcement agency that has been able to bust all these fake abductions.”

Pupils and students will be safe when schools and colleges reopen next week so long as everyone follows the requirements put in place by Government to reduce risk of Covid-19 infection, President Mnangagwa said yesterday during a virtual meeting of the Junior Cabinet.

In his remarks, the President commended pupils for their endurance and discipline during the nearly seven months when schools were closed.

“Government has put in place concrete interventions through the Ministries of Primary and Secondary Education and also of Higher and Tertiary Education, Innovation, Science and Technology Development to ensure that learners return to safe and hygienic schools or college environments.

“I call upon all learners and teachers who are going back to schools, tertiary and university facilities to be careful and to abide by the stipulated requirements which help prevent Covid-19,” President Mnangagwa said.

Government has set aside $600 million to ensure the safe reopening of schools that begins on Monday with exam classes and the other classes returning in two more stages within the next six weeks.

The President commended young people, especially those at tertiary institutions, who have taken part in the fight against Covid-19 through production of personal protective equipment (PPE).

“Going forward, this creativity and determination to answer the problems that affect our communities and the nation through science, innovation and technology must keep on being inculcated and nurtured.

“The innovation hubs and industrial parks being established by Government are an example of the support we will render,” he said.

Economic reforms being implemented by Government were to spur economic growth and widen career opportunities for young people.

“The present investments and programmes in agriculture, mining, and visible construction of dams, roads, power and ICT infrastructure will also guarantee that our children grow up in a Zimbabwe which is food self-sufficient, modern, industrialised and accessible, a Zimbabwe which leaves no one behind.”

Government’s focus on social services development would ensure increased access to education and health facilities by young people. The devolution policy had also seen some local authorities invest more in such facilities for the benefit of young people.

“Let us, thus, prepare our young people to be active participants in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Practical and problem solving skills must be developed and enhanced by exposing them to the various sectors of the economy through purposeful educational trips. ICTs and infrastructure developments must be undertaken alive to these pressing realities,” President Mnangagwa said.

Government had set aside $1 billion in the 2020 budget for youth employment and empowerment through the recapitalisation of the Empower Bank.

It has also initiated various incentives for youth employment that include a tax initiative, establishment of the capital venture fund and the ongoing reconstitution of the Zimbabwe Youth Council.

Government was also reviewing the National Youth Policy and the President assured the Junior Cabinet that they would carry on promoting children’s interests and protecting the constitutional rights and freedoms.

President Mnangagwa challenged young people to use social media platforms positively to inculcate values of unity, love, tolerance and promote the good image of the country.

Young people should study hard and focus on their education.

“Together with all the young children you represent, you are the future and hope of our great country,” said the President.

“Shun drug and substance abuse as well as promiscuous lifestyles. Listen and adhere to the guidance of your parents, teachers and elders. Be confident that Government and your guardians will give you the maximum support to achieve your goals and aspirations.”

Professor Mthuli Ncube
Conrad MupSesa Mashonaland West Bureau
Zimbabwe has no shortage of foreign currency, but rather a problem of allocating foreign currency through formal systems, now being addressed by measures that include the auction system, Finance and Economic Development Minister Professor Mthuli Ncube said at the weekend.

Speaking during the meeting of the Mashonaland West Zanu PF Provincial Coordinating Committee in Chinhoyi on Saturday, Prof Ncube said while the nation was moving towards economic transformations through its key sectors including farming, mining, ICT and tourism, the stability of the local currency and more foreign currency inflows would eradicate some anomalies existing in the retail and financial sectors.

“We don’t have any shortage of foreign currency as a country. But we just have a shortage of foreign currency through the formal channels. This is, however, what we are fixing through the auction system and new more favourable fundamentals to address the economic challenges.

“As a nation, we were worried and had envisaged a drop in remittances by as much as 10 percent. But God surprised: our remittances are actually up 30 percent. So we have enough foreign currency which means we just have an allocation problem. But we are also fixing that,” he said.

On June 23, the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) replaced the interbank market with weekly foreign exchange auctions to determine the Zimbabwe dollar exchange rate.

The new system has generally led to the rebuilding of market confidence, improved access to foreign currency for companies, stabilised the exchange rate and prices as most companies applying for forex getting it.

The Tuesday auctions are aimed at selling foreign currency retained by exporters, which must either be used or sold within 30 days, at the discretion of the exporter or be subject to compulsory sale after 30 days.

Prof Ncube said the stability brought by the auction system to the local currency, making it stronger. Government measures are expected to ensure that exchange rate and prices remained stable.

He was responding to a member of the PCC committee who had raised concerns over extra charges that people were incurring to access foreign currency from banks for buying farming equipment and machinery outside the country.

“As a Government, we have always desired to improve the salaries and welfare of the civil servants and talks are also underway to discuss the US$75 Covid-19 allowance. We also expect private players to play their role in improving salaries of their workers.

Zimbabwe has no shortage of foreign currency, but rather a problem of allocating foreign currency through formal systems, now being addressed by measures that include the auction system, Finance and Economic Development Minister Professor Mthuli Ncube said at the weekend.

AHEAD of its annual conference to be held in Bindura, Mashonaland Central, the ruling Zanu PF party has hinted that it is likely to reduce the number of delegates in line with the Covid-19 regulations.

The 19th Zanu PF Annual People’s Conference will be held in December and yesterday the party’s acting spokesperson Cde Patrick Chinamasa told journalists that preparations for the annual party indaba were going on well.

“As we go forward, we are looking forward to holding our 19th Annual People’s Conference whose venue is Bindura and this will take place in December, but the format will take into account Covid-19 regulations and when we get nearer to that date party cadres in all provinces and structures will be informed as to the numbers that will be allowed to attend and the format it will take in order to take into consideration the Covid 19 regulations,” he said.

However, as Zimbabwe begins to flatten the curve of the pandemic, the Government is gradually opening the economy, all the while observing the WHO set regulations.

Apart from discussing the easing of the lockdown, which has resulted in the reopening of school examination classes, extension of operating hours for business and re-introduction of inter-city bus operations, the Central Committee was also briefed on the ongoing DCC elections by the party political commissar Cde Victor Matemadanda.

“The emphasis by the political commissar was that there would be no imposition of candidates, there would be no vote buying and that no other nefarious activities will be tolerated. As of now the process of submission of CVs has been completed and they are now in the process of being transmitted to the Political Commissar,” Cde Chinamasa.

He said the Commissariat and the Security Departments would carry out the vetting of candidates and warned that those fomenting factionalism and other forms of indiscipline would be punished. The Central Committee was briefed on the Pfumvudza Concept by Lands, Agriculture, Water and Rural Resettlement Deputy Minister Vangelis Haritatos.

Over three million people have been trained under the programme and will benefit from the Presidential Input Scheme.

Zanu PF Secretary for External Affairs Cde Simbarashe Mumbengegwi appraised the Central Committee of the recent bilateral meeting between Zanu PF and the South Africa’s ANC.

He said the meeting dispelled notions of a crisis in Zimbabwe adding the relations between the two liberation movements remained strong. Cde Mumbengegwi said Zimbabwe like any other country was facing its challenges which were, however, surmountable.

“As sister parties and former liberation movements it is our responsibility in the process of resolving these challenges which are not of our making but of various situations which have arisen,” he said. “We also agreed that an attack on Zanu PF by our usual detractors is an attack on the ANC and other liberation movements. An attack on one is an attack on all of us and therefore we must all work in solidarity in order to defeat the agents of regime change,” Cde Mumbengegwi said.

Cde Mike Bimha who is the Zanu PF Secretary for Indigenisation and Empowerment also briefed the Central Committee on the review of the indigenisation and empowerment policy.

AHEAD of its annual conference to be held in Bindura, Mashonaland Central, the ruling Zanu PF party has hinted that it is likely to reduce the number of delegates in line with the Covid-19 regulations.

Machaya convicted
Midlands Bureau
Former Midlands Provincial Governor, Jason Machaya was yesterday convicted for abuse of office by a Gweru magistrate.

Machaya, together with former Midlands Provincial Physical Planner, Chisayinyerwa Chibururu, have been facing charges of abuse of office involving the sale of State land in Gokwe.

The two pleaded not guilty to the offence, but trial magistrate, Ms Charity Maphosa, found them guilty and remanded them in custody for sentencing today.

Machaya, who is represented by lawyer Mr Alec Muchadehama has been facing charges of abuse of office involving residential and commercial stands on State land in Gokwe totalling about 17 000 to some land developers, which the court argued was inconsistent with his duties.

Jason Machaya

The court proved that Machaya did not have any lawful responsibility to allocate State land to developers and entities, arguing it is the responsibility of the Minister of Local Government and Public Works.

Machaya further received 1 791 commonage stands from the said land developers and entities after which he parcelled out 1 185 of the commonage stands to different individuals.

Mr Muchadehama submitted a letter from a medical doctor indicating that Machaya was not feeling well and could not stand court, but Mrs Maphosa said he was fit and would be sentenced to today.

The value of stolen money was put at $60 000. In the case of Chibururu, the court heard that he acted in connivance with Machaya.

Mr Garudzo Ziyaduma prosecuted.

T E R R I F Y I N G!!!!! THE ENTIRE BURKINA FASO GOVERNMENT RESIGNS Bill Gates Dirty Tricks in Burkina Faso and Nigeria, by Sussy Vozniak, reporter for Intelicor Press, Vienna. Paris: Secret documents leaked on the fiasco in Burkina Faso expose troubling information on the undercover activities of the American Multi-Billionaire Bill Gates in the small African nation and across the region. Intelicor veterans in Paris express unease as the Burkinabe government led by Prime Minister Paul Kaba Thieba resigned https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-46930537 A leading Intelicor veteran thinks that the reason why President Roch Marc Christian Kabore demanded the resignation of the Prime Minister is related to the matter of the proposed release of genetically modified (GMO) mosquitoes in Burkina Faso under the sponsorship of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The story began in January 2018, when Bill Gates pledged USD $45 million to the health initiative in Burkina Faso. Some felt that the funds were a decoy to cover bribery to top government officials for allowing the program to release the GMO mosquitoes in Burkina Faso. The GMO mosquitoes were programmed at Imperial College London under a grant from Bill Gates to sterilize natural mosquitoes and humans across the African continent over time https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/researchers-to-release-genetically-engineered-mosquitoes-in-africa-for-first-time/ The terrifying news of the secret project for Human Sterilization of Africans with GMO mosquitoes alarmed African leaders, who quickly came down hard on President Kabore forcing him to act. Similar teams are working in Mali and Uganda. The homing endonuclease gene (HEG) that sterilizes the female mosquitoes also could be passed through saliva to humans during bites and the human in turn could pass it on through sexual intercourse to another human, in a cascade that could have the entire Black Continent exterminated before anything could be done
TEAM-ZANU-PF NEWS BULLETIN ED intercedes for love, peace and unity 22 OCT, 2019 - 00:10 0 COMMENTS ED intercedes for love, peace and unity President Mnangagwa, First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa, Vice President Kembo Mohadi, Bishop Veronica Kwati (far left) and Dr Lucky Mutanda (right) pray during the National Day of Prayer launch at State House yesterday.— Picture: John Manzongo Farirai Machivenyika Senior Reporter President Mnangagwa yesterday adjourned a rescheduled Cabinet meeting to attend the launch of the National Day of Prayer at State House where he urged churches to pray for peace and unity. Most Cabinet ministers also attended the launch of the National Day of Prayer, which is the brainchild of First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa. Over 300 denominations were represented at the launch that was attended by over 1 000 people. “We have gathered here at State House not to celebrate the First Family, but to pray to God about the challenges we are facing because He is the only one who can solve them. When I was inaugurated as President last year, I preached for there to be peace, love, unity and harmony in the country and that is what I still preach today when I get the chance,” said President Mnangagwa. “We want peace, love, harmony and a united country. We should not discriminate against each other. I also know that these are the virtues that are also promoted by the Church.” The President said Government would adhere to the dictates of the Constitution that guarantees freedom of religion. He said churches have their right to worship freely and Government respects that provision because if a nation follows Jesus Christ’s teachings, there will be no killing of each other and damaging other people’s property. President Mnangagwa said God was the one who appointed leaders, and the leaders should know that the people they lead belong to God. “However, God does not come to directly appoint individuals as leaders but appoints them through the people. “We have different races across the world and each one of them was given their own country and resources. However, we have other nations that are not satisfied with what God gave them and want to find benefit from other nations’ resources. “This is how conflicts happen between nations; that is why we always pray that each nation benefits from its resources,” said President Mnangagwa. Turning to the issue of political dialogue, the President reiterated his position that he was open to talking to anyone through the Political Actors Dialogue Forum (POLAD). “We have our dialogue as political parties at this place and my arms are stretched to say every political party should come and we build our nation. We are all Zimbabweans, we might get assistance from other nations but we all remain Zimbabweans. “So as churches, pray for there to be peace and harmony in the country,” he said. President Mnangagwa saluted the churches for organising the National Day of Prayer. “I have been at this place since 1980 and I want to tell you that such a thing has not happened before,” he said. He added that the church was free to organise regular prayer meetings at State House whenever they needed. Meanwhile, President Mnangagwa introduced the Cabinet members to the congregants that attended yesterday’s prayer meeting. There were also banners on display at the event promoting the Government’s devolution policy. The banners highlighted the various natural resources found in each of the country’s 10 provinces that could be exploited for the benefit of the respective communities.
TEAM-ZANU-PF NEWS BULLETIN Friday public holiday 22 OCT, 2019 - 00:10 0 COMMENTS Friday public holiday Minister Murwira Zvamaida Murwira Senior Reporter Government has declared Friday, October 25, a public holiday to allow people to attend the Sadc-initiated regional day of solidarity against sanctions on Zimbabwe, whose main event is slated for the National Sports Stadium in Harare. This follows a decision by the Sadc summit held in Tanzania in August this year to set the day aside for solidarity marches across the region to denounce illegal sanctions imposed by the United States (US) and the European Union (EU). The public holiday was announced last night by Acting Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Professor Amon Murwira while addressing journalists on the 37th Cabinet decision matrix yesterday. “Cabinet received an update on the Friday October 25, 2019 SADC Anti-Sanctions Day from Honourable Vice President Kembo Mohadi. The marchers are expected to assemble at Robert Mugabe Square by 6am, from where they will proceed to the National Sports Stadium at 8am. Highlights of events scheduled to take place at the National Sports Stadium will include entertainment; solidarity messages by various national and international presenters; presentation of research findings on the background and impact of the illegal sanctions; a soccer match between Dynamos and Highlanders football clubs; and the anti-sanctions gala to run from 6pm on the same day till the following morning,” said Minister Murwira, who is also Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development Minister. “Similar activities are expected to take place in various provincial and district centres throughout the country. To further amplify the importance of this day to the economic emancipation and well-being of Zimbabwe, Friday October 25, 2019 shall be declared an official public holiday. “The general public will be advised of more details of logistical arrangements in the build-up to the occasion. We, therefore, wish to appeal to all Zimbabweans across the board to come in their numbers and to actively participate towards the success of this grand and noble initiative.”
TEAM-ZANU-PF NEWS BULLETIN Cabinet receives 2020 Budget Strategy Paper 22 OCT, 2019 - 00:10 0 COMMENTS Cabinet receives 2020 Budget Strategy Paper Prof Ncube Africa Moyo Deputy News Editor Cabinet yesterday received the 2020 proposed Budget Strategy Paper that was presented by Finance and Economic Development Minister Professor Mthuli Ncube. This was said by Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development Minister Professor Amon Murwira while briefing journalists in Harare after yesterday’s Cabinet meeting. He was representing Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa. “Cabinet received the 2020 proposed Budget Strategy Paper as presented by the Minister of Finance and Economic Development,” he said. “The Minister (Prof Ncube)’s presentation took note of the ongoing reforms which are premised on the 2019 national Budget theme — Austerity for Prosperity as outlined in the Transitional Stabilisation Programme (TSP). “Notable milestones in this regard include fiscal consolidation, monetary policy restoration, liberalisation of the foreign exchange market, re-engagement and a number of governance and structural reforms aimed at improving the business environment and to support the productive sectors.” Prof Murwira said the reforms present a “firm pedestal” for the rebound of the country’s economy from next year and beyond. The 2020 Budget Strategy Paper is premised on the understanding that the austerity phase of the reforms will be over by the end of the year, thereby ushering in the era of economic growth and productivity. Prof Murwira said the Strategy Paper took note of the fact that this year, the economy faced “severe exogenous shocks” arising from the El Nino-induced drought and Cyclone Idai, which constrained agricultural activities and electricity generation, bringing about general under-performance of the economy. Government projects the economy to grow by 4,6 percent next year. Further, price increases which currently present a major challenge are expected to stabilise on the back of continued implementation of fiscal and monetary reforms, supported by structural and supply side measures. Prof Murwira said the 2020 National Budget will seek to consolidate the macro-fiscal stabilisation gains secured in 2019. “However, the strategic focus of the Budget thrust will now be anchored on the following objectives: growth and productivity; job creation; competitiveness; and promotion of more sustained and shared development. “Also of importance is the need for a more comprehensive and well-coordinated approach to the implementation of the country’s debt arrears clearance programme,” said Prof Murwira. He added that going forward, Government’s borrowing programme shall be coordinated in order to align the country’s re-engagement to the international financial institutions’ lending policies. “In this regard, completion of the Staff Monitored Programme will be accorded top priority,” said Prof Murwira.
