Zanu PF has commended Government for taking over service delivery in urban centres following the dismal failure by opposition-led local authorities to meet the needs of residents.
This came out at the Zanu PF 354th Ordinary Session of the Politburo held in Harare this Saturday.
The 354th Ordinary Session of the Politburo deliberated on a number of issues ranging from preparations for the national people’s conference to service delivery in urban centres.
Briefing journalists after almost eight hours of deliberation, ZANU-PF Acting National Political Commissar Patrick Chinamasa said the failure by opposition-led councils to provide critical services has seen central government taking charge as evidenced by road rehabilitation programmes underway in urban centres.
“The opposition has failed to deliver infrastructure in urban areas, they deliver potholes, uncollected garbage, sewerage and urban dwellers had years of opposition neglect. It is clear that the MDC have run down the city since 2000, it is a matter that the central government has intervened,” he said.
So far the party has more than 72 thousand cells with a standing membership of 3.6 million.
“Our membership stands 3 624 050 from more than 72 thousand and it means the party is on course in surpassing 5 million target. Cell verification is an ongoing exercise and I’m confident the five target is achievable,” said Chinamasa.
The Politburo also deliberated on the pronouncement by the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe on ensuring that citizens access US$50 weekly.
“We commend the move as it was realised that some of the school items needs forex so Bureau De Change have been funded to ensure a smooth process,” he said.
