According to the Zanu PF Secretary for Administration, Cde Didymus Mutasa, the party will host delegates from most Southern African countries that will offer solidarity messages as the region is under threat from neo-colonialism.


“We expect delegates from Zambia’s Patriotic Front, Chama Cha Mapinduzi of Tanzania, South Africa’s African National Congress and Frelimo of Mozambique, among others,” he said.

He said all local delegates to the revolutionary party’s conference will start arriving in Bulawayo on Wednesday ahead of the official opening by the First Secretary and President of the party, Cde Robert Mugabe on Thursday.

The conference which will be held under the theme “Defend National Sovereignty, Consolidate Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment”, will attract over 6 000 delegates who will discuss the indigenisation and economic empowerment agenda.


Other issues to be discussed are the state of agriculture, economic development issues among other people-oriented policies and programmes.

Zanu PF supporters expect the conference to come with resolutions that will transform the socio-economic and political landscape of the country ahead of the anticipated elections next year.
