Zanu PF should fulfil its promise

EDITOR — Zanu PF bankrolls many development plans, economic blueprints every time when there is an election or when we near an election. This only highlights it’s intention to win all the elections.

Last week, Zanu PF unveiled thousands of stands in Norton just in time for the by-election held yesterday. People should not be hoodwinked by Zanu PF whose intention is to remain in power at all cost.

They promise people everything, from housing stands, mining claims, employment etc but they never fulfil those promises.

Just this year, the permanent secretary in the Local Government ministry introduced a new housing scheme to protect the public from land barons who have fleeced them of millions of dollars through illegal sales of residential stands on undesignated sites.

This coincided with Local Government minister Saviour Kasukuwere’s call to local authorities to indicate their land requirements to the government to facilitate their fulfilment of targets under ZimAsset.

Two million jobs were promised during the last general election but instead we see the opposite of the promise. Companies were closed, some by the government itself, and the few people employed were fired under the three-month  notice.

Is this what Zimbabweans want, to be taken for ride by the same party that  laid out a very attractive election manifesto begging for our vote?

People of Zimbabwe let us not be fooled, once beaten twice shy.

Our population is growing fast but this Zanu PF government has not been able to fulfil its housing development agenda.

Housing is a basic need that the Constitution guarantees. It’s the responsibility of the State to make sure its citizens live a comfortable life. So, the Zanu PF government should consider housing as a key area and invest in the sector through the public-private partnership arrangement rather than using it for vote buying.

Zimbabwe would not have slums today if housing is included as part of infrastructure development.
