Zanu PF Bulawayo has intensified preparations for the province’s Presidential Youth Interface rally meeting whose date is yet to be announced.

The party has already selected White City Stadium as the venue while a number of committees have been set up to organise the event.

These include Fundraising that is led by the Minister of Welfare Services for War Veterans, Ex-Detainees and Restrictees, who is also Makokoba legislator, Rtd. Col. Tshinga Dube; Transport and welfare that is chaired by the provincial treasurer Cde Butho Gadzi, and Information, Publicity and Entertainment whose chairperson is Pumula legislator, Cde Godfrey Malaba.

In an interview, the chairperson of the local organising committee, Cde Absalom Sikhosana called upon Bulawayo residents to come in their thousands to attend the interface meeting.

Cde Malaba revealed that preparations are on course and invited all people from across the political divide to attend the event.

He was however quick to remind all that will attend to be disciplined and respecting all the leadership that will be present on the day.

Zanu PF Youth League National Secretary for People with Disabilities, Cde Butholezwe Ngwenya revealed that Bulawayo youths were excited with the prospect of meeting President Robert Mugabe.

The youth interface meetings have been a huge success with thousands attending them in the provinces that have hosted them and it is expected that the same will prevail when it shifts to the City of Kings and Queens.

Meanwhile, the Zanu PF Bulawayo Provincial Coordinating Committee (PCC) has called upon party members to ensure supporters register for the upcoming general elections set for next year.

This came out during the PCC meeting graced by the party leadership from the different districts of the province.

At a time when the voter registration exercise is already in full swing countrywide, Zanu PF members were urged to ensure all party structures were geared for the elections by registering all within their cells to vote.

Participants at the meeting however raised numerous challenges that were being faced by residents in their quest to follow procedures needed to exercise their right to vote.

Zanu PF Bulawayo Provincial Chairperson, Cde Dennis Ndlovu, however indicated that these problems could be solved through working together with relevant ministers.

Addressing the same gathering, Bulawayo Metropolitan Minister of State for Provincial Affairs, Cde Eunice Sandi Moyo called for a quick redress to all the concerns raised by the party structures to ensure a resounding victory for the ruling party.

The meeting tackled a number of issues that also included member mobilisation as well as preparations for the upcoming Presidential Youth Interface rally.
