Zimbabwe: Women's League Geared for 2013 Elections

Zanu-PF Harare Central Women's League is geared up for next year's general elections and challenged women to participate in their numbers. Speaking at a training session for income generating projects for community development in Harare yesterday, the women expressed confidence in President Robert Mugabe's leadership.

Vice chairperson Mrs Deliwe Muvhuti encouraged youths to desist from political violence as the country prepares for elections.

"Harare Central constituency women's league is confident that Zanu-PF presidential candidate for next year's election, Cde Mugabe will win.

"Residents have come in their numbers and judging by their attendance, Zanu-PF is guaranteed of winning even previously lost seats," said Cde Muvhuti.

"We are gathered here to train women and youths how to use their own hands and help in the upkeep of the family.

"These are life skills that will empower the community," she said.

Mrs Muvhuti added that political tolerance would ensure that the nation votes in peace.

"Zanu-PF does not condone political violence and we are encouraging youths in Harare Central constituency not to engage in political violence," she said.

Mrs Joylene Munduna from Magunje who is also Zanu-PF chairperson for Mudzimu district was invited to train the women and youths.

"I came all the way from Magunje to help Cranborne community to establish self help projects and I am overwhelmed by the response.

One of the residents Mrs Alice Nyangoni said the project has empowered the community to manufacture its own washing soap and drinks cheaply.

These are resold to the community at a profit.
