The 7th Presidential Youth Interface rally set for the Midlands province will be held on September 2.

The date was announced this Tuesday at an inter-district meeting held at CJR School.

The Zanu PF National Secretary for Youth Affairs, Cde Kudzanayi Chipanga said the interface rally will be held on 2 September at the Mkoba open space near Mkoba Teachers College.

Cde Chipanga urged youths from the province to come in their numbers and exercise high level of discipline on the day of the interface rally.

“It is high time youths shun being used by senior party members for their sinister motives and instead fight for empowerment so that they can actively participate in all spheres of the county’s economy,” said Cde Chipanga.

He said youths play a significant role in campaigning and mobilising support for the party and when it is election time, they are denied an opportunity to represent the party.

Cde Chipanga added that in the upcoming general elections, youths should also raise their voice to take up political posts.

Zanu PF Midlands Youth Chairperson, Cde Prosper Machando enumerated some of the challenges and aspirations of youths in the province and reaffirmed their unwavering support for President Robert Mugabe.

He said youths from the Midlands Province were not part of the succession machinations but were solidly behind the candidature of Cde Mugabe.

After the inter-district meeting, Cde Chipanga was accompanied by the provincial youth leadership and provincial chairperson, Engineer MacKenzi Ncube and other senior party leaders to assess the progress so far at the venue for the interface rally.

Zanu PF youths have been organising interface rallies throughout the country’s provinces to discuss issues affecting youths.
