Dr Dumiso Dabengwa said when he first became the President of Zapu, under his ledership he will be driven not by a privileged few but by the interests of ordinary, working families: people who have a job but do not always have job security and those looking for work; people who own their own home but worry about paying the mortgage and those that dream of owning their own homes; people who can just about manage but worry about the cost of living and getting their children into a good school. These families have been ignored by politicians, and by others in positions of power, for too long. Yet they do not ask for much: they want to get on with their lives, to do their best for their children, to have a fair chance.
Under Dumiso Dabengwa, they will no longer be ignored. They are the people to whom we will be dedicated. They are the people who work hard every day and make this country what it is. And they are the people who deserve strong and stable leadership from a government that is determined to address the five giant challenges we face – and make the right long-term decisions for the future of Zimbabwe.
