ZAPU President Doctor Dumiso Dabengwa told a Bulawayo Province ZAPU Youth Workshop that the leadership of his party wants the youth to effectively contribute in every aorta of the organisation.
Comrade Dabengwa was speaking at a workshop of the Bulawayo Youth Front. He briefly narrated the history of the party and said that the youth have always played a pivotal role in all stages of ZAPU's revolutionary struggle. He challenged the youths from various districts of Bulawayo to democratically correct the economic and political evils bedevilling Zimbabwe as a result of deliberate and persistent misrule by ZanuPf. The veteran freedom fighter noted with sadness that the current political scenario neglates all the values and dreams of the liberation struggle in which he sacrificially participated with many others.
He urged the youth to be involved in the party's internal processes to elect candidates for both local and national elections. He farther challenged them to shun and despise the culture of receiving handouts of any kind from corrupt politicians calling upon the youth to collectively identify their potential instead.
Speaking at the same occasion Doctor Strike Mnkandla ZAPU's secretary general told the youth that they had a task to make the party visible. The youth told the party leadership that the time to start preparing for 2018 general elections is now. They also expressed their support and love for ZAPU.
