ZANU PF provinces say they “have been largely impressed” by the way President Emmerson Mnangagwa has upligted the lives of Zimbabweans since assuming leadership.
Zanu PF has thus endorsed Mnangagwa as the ruling party’s sole presidential candidate for the 2023 harmonised election.
Mnangagwa was endorsed through resolutions unanimously made at provincial inter-district meetings held over the weekend in Harare, Masvingo, Mashonaland West, Mashonaland Central, Midlands, Bulawayo, Matabeleland North and Matabeleland South provinces.
“Cde Mnangagwa has presided over unprecedented socio-economic development for the whole country. There is need to ensure that the trajectory is accelerated without any interruption,” said ZANU PF Harare provincial chairperson Godwills Masimirembwa during resolutions made in Harare.
The endorsement comes as the run up to the 2023 harmonised elections is now in full swing amid massive mobilization across the political divide, a move likely to turn the plebiscite into a game of numbers.
Zanu PF says it has registered 3,3 million people in its cell registers countrywide as it gears to rally five million voters for Mnangagwa.
On the other hand, MDC Alliance says it is mobilising close to six million voters as it targets the youths and first-time voters.
