Hon Tongai Matutu, the MP for Masvingo Urban has hailed youths in his constituency for embracing the social media to increase interaction among members of the Youth Assembly.
Hon. Matutu said:"I am happy with this noble idea of the facebook page for party youths. This promotes interaction and creates a platform for exchanging constructive ideas. These social networks have taken centre stage these days and we are happy to see that these young guys have mooted a great idea. Infact they have embraced new technology. We are living in an information society where the majority of our youths spend more time on facebook, twitter and other social networks, "said Hon. Matutu.
As Minister of ICT, Hon Nelson Chamisa has ensured that every person in the country can have access to a cellphone, from where one can now connect to the internet from anywhere.
Meanwhile, Hon. Matutu addressed an MDC youth forum at Building brigade in ward 5 where he challenged the youth to come up with self help projects. He said the MDC is fighting to ensure that policies that encourage investment are championed so that jobs are created for the young people.
In the same province, MDC provincial chairperson Wilstaff Sitemere addressed a branch rally at Boroma, ward 13 Masvingo North Constituency where he updated party members on the roadmap to the much anticipated polls. He urged villagers to remain vigilant ahead of the watershed elections.
"We have reached a point of no return and this time around it has to happen because it is now time to confine the former ruling party to the political dustbins. They have had their days but it is now time to end years of political strife, "said Sitemere.
In Midlands North, thousands of MDC supporters yesterday gathered at Eiffel flats in Muzvezve to bid farewell to the former Provincial Vice secretary Ketayi Makhosa who died in a car crash in South Africa.
Makhosa contributed immensely to the struggle for democracy, in bringing development to the Muzvezve District. He joined MDC in 2002, was elected Kadoma district chairperson, and at the 2006 congress he was elevated to provincial vice secretary.
Speaker after speaker praised makhosa as a visionary and a person who had a desire to see the peoples' party MDC in government. He is survived by his wife Duduzile Malaba and 5 children. May his soul rest in peace.
