Mashonaland East Province is set to host the annual Zanu PF National Peoples Conference, with the ruling party choosing Murape High School in Seke District as their venue.

Zanu PF Director for Administration, Cde Dickson Dzora, who toured the venue in the company of the ruling party’s provincial Chairman, Cde Joel Biggie Matiza, said he is happy with the choice of Murape Secondary School as the venue for the party’s 18th conference.

“So far I don’t see any challenge with the venue, we will write our report which we will present to the party,” said Cde Dzora.

Cde Matiza said the province has already started preparations to host the event which will be held from the 10-15 December.

“As Mashonaland East, we are ready to host the conference and we have so far started mobilising resources,” said Cde Matiza.

As part of preparations for the big event, the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructural Development said it will be relocating the Dema tollgate to a location after Dema Business Centre, while the road from Chikwanha Shopping Centre will be widened in anticipation of the large volumes of traffic during the conference.
