The ZANU PF 19th National People`s Conference today roared to life at the party headquarters in Harare today.
Marking the beginning of a hybrid event – which will see a select few delegates participating at physical events, while the rest from the provinces will follow virtually from designated sites – was the 56th Ordinary Session of the Politburo.

It was at the Politburo that President Mnangagwa got a report on the final works put in place to ensure the conference`s smooth running.

The main venue is in Bindura, Mashonaland Central.
Tomorrow, the Central Committee convene to adopt the final agenda of this year’s Conference and discuss other fundamental issues as expected by the party Constitution.

In his speech at the Politburo meeting today, President Mnangagwa told party members to draw lessons and strength from the party’s rich liberation war history.

“In addition, the unity of purpose and political conciseness among our cadres across the structures of the party, is an effective instrument to defend and consolidate the gains of our national independence sovereignty and democracy as we are obligated by the party constitution,” said President Mnangagwa.

President Mnangagwa applaud all provinces and districts for clearly and resolutely opposing the hegemonic tendencies exhibited by some western countries that have imposed illegal sanctions on Zimbabwe.

He also told party members that the Second Republic is leveraging on the natural resource endowment, capabilities and skills and that the Government must continue to be implemented bold strategies that will facilitate transformation in the quality of life for the people of Zimbabwe.

“The principal goal is ensuring our rural communities become centres of employment and tertiary production,” added President Mnangagwa.

President Mnangagwa went on to say that Government was implementing a One District – One Industry Concept approach enunciated in the Zimbabwe National Industrial Development Policy.

He urged party structures across all provinces to to take lead and accelerate the programme as key actors in mobilising the people for increased production and productivity.
