via Zanu PF targets 15-year olds ahead of 2018 polls – NewsDay Zimbabwe February 27, 2015
ZANU PF is planning to ensure that all children above the age of 15 are recruited into party structures ahead of the 2018 elections, an official has said.
Speaking during the handover of computers donated by the Air Force of Zimbabwe at Kadzidirire Primary School in his Gokwe-Nembudziya constituency over the weekend, MP Justice Mayor Wadyajena said youngsters of 15 years and above had a role to play in the future of the ruling party.
“All children above 15 years should be part of Zanu PF and be in the cell structures. We want those above 15 to be working for the party and ensure there is development.
“Youths should take an active role in building the country,” he said.
The donated items included five desktop computers, two laptops and three printers.
Wadyajena said Zimbabwe should be grateful for the educational policies of President Robert Mugabe that have made the country one of the best in Africa.
He, however, castigated Education minister Lazarus Dokora for what he termed lack of consistency in his policies.
The MP took time to brief the constituency of the developments in Parliament and the party, saying all those who allegedly wanted to oust Mugabe were now history.
He said the elevation of Justice minister Emmerson Mnangagwa to Vice-President meant that he was now a national leader and “bigger servant of the people”.
He said Gokwe-Nembudziya supporters should join many others in celebrating the life of Mugabe, whom he described as “very fit”.
“If you see him walk, you would think he is 16, he is gifted and you can’t deny that,” Wadyajena said.
