Zanu-PF is expecting to raise at least $1 million from its 15th annual national people’s conference fundraising dinner tomorrow. Vice President and Zanu-PF second secretary Cde Emmerson Mnangagwa will be the guest of honour.

In an interview with The Herald, Zanu-PF secretary for finance Cde Obert Mpofu, who is leading the fundraising committee, said everything was on course for the dinner and the conference.

He said they had approached corporates and well-wishers to contribute towards the successful hosting of the dinner and most of the tables are booked.

“Following our appeals for support from well-wishers, the results have been unbelievingly overwhelming. We had targeted $1million for the dinner on Friday (tomorrow), but we might actually surpass the amount,” he said.

“A number of tables have been taken up and we are confident that by Friday (tomorrow) all the tables will be taken as there is a lot of demand from individuals who want to be associated with the event.”

A platinum table costs $100 000 while gold goes for $50 000.

A silver and bronze table cost $30 000 and $10 000 respectively.

Another dinner will also be held in Bulawayo on November 27 and Vice President Cde Phelekezela Mphoko will be the guest of honour.

“We are starting with Harare this Friday (tomorrow) and then on the 27th will be in Bulawayo due to demand. Bulawayo has complained that it has not been considered in this initiative so we are moving there,” he said.

Cde Mpofu said all the country’s provinces were geared up in preparations for the annual event.

“We are inviting corporates and people from various sectors in the country.

“Government officials, corporates, marketing personnel and community leaders can attend and we have different tables all accommodating 10 people,” he said.

The party’s 15th Annual National People’s Conference is scheduled for Victoria Falls between December 7 and 13 and at least $3 million is needed to fund the conference.

More than 6 000 delegates are expected to attend the conference which will be officially opened by President Mugabe on December 11.

    Scandalous, is there no honesty among thieves? Zimbabwe thieves have to pay at least 10000$ annually to appease the crime syndicat.
