ZANU PF President and First Secretary, Cde Robert Mugabe says the party is now geared more than ever to reclaim lost ground and become the leading voice of the masses.Â
Cde Mugabe, who is also the Head of State and Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, says the just ended 11thÂ Zanu PFâ€™s Annual Peopleâ€™s Conference saw the consolidation of unity of the party as it redeemed itself from the 2008 doldrums.Â
On economic empowerment, Cde Mugabe said literate people in the country lack confidence in their skills, thus making them fail toÂ take charge of the countryâ€™s economy.
Regarding sanctions, he said the two countries or enterprises whose parent countries have imposed sanctions on Zimbabwe will either have to appeal for the sanctions to go, or they will not be able to conduct their business as they will not be allowed to invest in the country.
President Mugabe said he is also not happy with the Finance Ministerâ€™s lack of support for the agricultural sector as this is the mainstay of the economy.
He also told youths that though they might have been persuaded by the MDCâ€™s sloganeeringÂ of ‘chinja’, ZANU PF is not only for changeÂ but forÂ socio-eonomic transformation of the country.
