Mnangagwa Launches By-election Campaign In Epworth1 year ago
Hundreds of ZANU PF supporters on Saturday thronged Epworth High School grounds for the launch of the party’s campaign for the 26 March by-elections.
The rally was expected to be addressed by the ZANU PF president and first secretary, President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Addressing reporters in Harare recently, ZANU PF spokesperson, Christopher Mutsvangwa, said the major highlight of the event is the issuance of title deeds to around 80 000 homeowners. He said:
The signature act of the Epworth visit would be to grant title deeds to the existing stock of urban houses which the people have and have never used and are dead capital.
We have decided as a party that we shall be giving title deeds to urban people. This is something which is big; it is as big as the land reform. It is as big as independence.
