Youths promised projects after Mugabe bash

BULAWAYO - Zanu PF has promised youths more projects  in line with ZimAsset to commence after President Robert Mugabe’s 90th birthday bash.

Khumbulani Mpofu, the chairperson of the Zanu PF Bulawayo Province Youth League, told the Daily News that more projects to benefit youths were in the pipeline.

“We are identifying youths who can start different projects in line with ZimAsset as it is still in our mandate that youths be taught indigenisation.

“Our youths are not conversant with indigenisation but after the 21st February Movement birthday celebrations we will unfurl more projects for them so that they learn,” Mpofu said.

He said through the projects, the party seeks to mobilise as many youths as they can ahead of the 2018 elections.

“We want to instil a sense of innovation, dynamism and universality to the youths so that they do not only wish to get employed but understand that small projects can sustain them,” he said.

“This we will do by grouping them in small numbers avail funds and resources to them through our financial centres like CABS and CBZ.”

He said prior to that, they want to hold capacity building workshops aimed at educating the youths on business management as most initiate projects when they are not well conversant.

Speaking on the 21st February Movement, Mpofu said plans for the event, which is slated for March 1, are at an advanced stage and the national committee has already been set.

“This year’s planning is centralised, meaning every province has a part to play. We are having a national fundraising dinner on February 7 and after the dinner, another provincial fund- raiser.

So far, as a province, Bulawayo is in the process of identifying 10 schoolchildren who will participate in collaboration with the ministry of Education,” Mpofu said.

Established in 1986, the 21st February Movement is an idea of the Zanu PF youth so that they emulate the character of Mugabe.

It is the first project that they work on every year.

Why after the bash and not now? So that the youths attend the bash in numbers and give the impression that the limping donkey is loved by the youths and then after the bash everything goes quiet and the officials' phones become unreachable. Vana vedu dzidzai vanhu ava. Isu tinemakore makumi matatu tichingovimbiswa zvinhu zvisingaitiki gore rega rega. Changamukayi mhani vapfanhami.
