Addressing party members at the ZANU PF Provincial Inter-District Conference for Matabeleland North in Lupane, ZANU PF National Chairperson, Cde Simon Khaya Moyo urged party members to ensure that they are not deceived by the current ZAPU as the original PF ZAPU entered into a Unity Accord in 1987.



Cde Moyo said the accord, which was signed by the late Vice President, Dr. Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo for PF-ZAPU and President Robert Mugabe for ZANU PF, was approved by the congresses of the two parties prior to the signing of the Unity Agreement. 

Ambassador Moyo called for vibrant party structures and urged party members to be faithful to the party.

Cde Moyo said the party is working hard to ensure that farming implements allocated to the three Matabeleland provinces by the RBZ will soon be distributed to the people so as to enhance productivity in the agriculture sector.

Ambassador Moyo however castigated MDC-T leader, Mr. Morgan Tsvangirai, for taking President Mugabe  to court, saying this reveals his party’s confusion, instability and fear of losing their jobs when they lose at the 2011 presidential elections.

He said it is unheard-of to take a sitting president to court, adding that it is surprising that Mr. Tsvangirai is taking the President to the same courts which are presided over by judges his party does not recognise.

Ambassador Moyo said that ZANU PF is a liberation party which will not surrender and give back power to a former colonial master.

Cde Moyo castigated Mr Tsvangirai for openly calling SADC leaders toothless bulldogs when he still calls for SADC mediation in the GPA.

He further revealed that the issue of governors and ambassadors will not change until illegal sanctions on the country have been completely removed.

On the issue of the constitution outreach process, he said the MDC-T first signed the Kariba Draft then took a u-turn and called for a people-driven constitution which they are trying to abandon by calling for a negotiated constitution.

The ZANU PF Provincial Inter-District Conference was attended by members of the politburo, central committee, provincial leadership as well as party members from the seven districts in the province.
