Zanu-PF has selected Masvingo province to host this year’s 16th Annual National People’s conference in December with the ruling party provincial leadership expected to meet to constitute committees to spearhead preparations. Last year’s conference was held in the prime tourist resort of Victoria Falls in Matabeleland North. Masvingo province last hosted the ruling party’s Annual National People’s Conference in December 2003.

Zanu-PF acting Masvingo provincial chairman Cde Amasa Nhenjana yesterday said the province had been chosen to host this year’s National People’s conference. Cde Nhenjana said party secretary for Administration Dr Ignatius Chombo wrote to the party provincial leadership recently informing them of the decision.

“We are going to meet at the end of this week as members of the Zanu-PF provincial executive to officially start preparations for this year’s 16th Annual National People’s Conference in early December,’’ he said.

“The dates and other such information as the venue have not yet been revealed, but we will be meeting to set up the various committees that will spearhead preparations for the annual conference,’’ he added.

Cde Nhenjana said the ruling party provincial executive will seek guidance from senior party leaders in the province such as Politburo members Cdes Josaya Hungwe and Masvingo Provincial Affairs Minister Senator Shuvai Mahofa on the choice of the venue.

“Personally, I think it will be good if the celebrations were to be held at the Great Zimbabwe monuments or Masvingo Teachers’ College, but this is my own opinion and our ruling party leaders in the province will give us guidance. We will stand guided by them,’’ Cde Nhenjana said.

The last Zanu-PF Annual People’s Conference in Masvingo was held at Masvingo Teachers’ College. Masvingo’s selection to host this year’s Zanu-PF Annual National People’s Conference comes after the province successfully hosted President Mugabe’s 92nd birthday commemorations at the Great Zimbabwe monuments.

The Zanu-PF Politburo will set dates and the theme for the conference that normally runs for a week with around 5 000 party members from across the country and beyond in attendance.
