The meeting, which was chaired by the party’s Second Secretary and Vice President, Cde Joice Mujuru, also discussed educational issues and stressed the need for tolerance among the party leaders and membership.


“As a party, there is need that we should be tolerant of other people’s views, especially during this time when the nation is crafting the new constitution,” said Cde Mujuru. 


Zanu-PF National Chairman and Zimbabwe‘s Ambassador to South Africa, Cde Simon Khaya Moyo, took the opportunity to allay any fears currently prevailing among Zimbabweans that government is in touch with South African authorities who have given assurances that any attempts at re-igniting xenophobia in South Africa will be dealt with.


“Zimbabweans should not be afraid of these xenophobia threats as the government is in touch with the South African authorities, who have since set up an inter-ministerial taskforce to investigate the issue and come up with measure to deal with the problem if it occurs,” said Cde Moyo.


He expressed fears that there may be some hidden hand trying to stir up trouble after the World Cup to destroy the image of Africa and South Africa in particular.


Members of the Central Committee were given a taste of the newly launched video ulbum, ‘Nyatsoteerera’ by Mbare Chimurenga choir, Jiti Pfonda.


Members of the body who included Vice President Mujuru and Media, Information and Publicity Minister, Cde Webster Shamu took to the dance floor, a scene which served to remind them of the many pungwe and morale nights during the national liberation struggle.
