Zanu PF has intensified the voter mobilisation drive, with Mashonaland West Province’s Chegutu district yesterday getting a major boost after taking delivery of an additional 51 bicycles for use.


Cde Mutsvangwa said he was alive to the fact that Mashonaland West “is the cradle of large-scale cash crop commercial farming. It pioneered Virginia tobacco farming.

“The dispossessed and pauperised local population was not keen to be farm labourers to rapacious white land grabbers after their military conquest of Zimbabwe.

“Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia became the sources of migrant labour. At independence in 1980, the Pan-Africanist ascendant Zanu PF Government made the bold decision to grant citizenship to all migrant labourers and their descendants.

“That way, Zimbabwe dealt with any seeds that could spawn xenophobic inclinations. Today, President Mnangagwa and his Second Republic are taking yet another noble step. He is keen to see that all farm workers regardless of country background, are issued with national ID,” he said.

“This is also a prelude to full inclusion in the democratic processes of a free Zimbabwe. With his dictum ‘no one and no place will be left behind’ he is doing all possible to ensure exhaustive voter registration ahead of the 2023 national harmonised elections.”
