Zanu PF to bus supporters for manifesto launch

HARARE - Zanu PF will bus supporters and members of the public to swell numbers at its manifesto launch on Friday at the Zimbabwe Grounds.

Mugabe will preside over the event.

The manifesto launch marks the beginning of the campaign season.

The event will be held under the theme “Indigenise, Empower, Develop, and Create Employment.”

Dick Mafios, Zanu PF Mashonaland Central provincial chairperson confirmed that they will bring in people from their province to attend the function.

“We are coming to Harare on Friday (tomorrow) for the manifesto launch as we have many supporters wanting to come and witness the launch and it is a big problem in choosing the people wanting to come so we shall to bring  hundreds of them with buses  and lorries,” said Mafios.

He denied that they were going to force-march people to the venue from the rural constituencies.

“No one is going to be sjamboked to attend the event, it is a false message from MDC that we want to force their members and the public to participate, I know that many of our supporters are waiting for the launch,” said Mafios.

“I know that people are trying  to discredit our party for no good reason but in our province, we are waiting for the manifesto as we recorded a high turnout of voters in the primary (election) as about 19 000 people voted whilst Senator Alice Chimbudzi was voted by over 27 000 people and these are people who want to come to the launch tomorrow,” said Mafios.

Several other provinces confirmed they were mobilising supporters to head to Harare for the landmark event.
