ZANU PF will hold an exhibition at its December congress for corporate bodies and companies to showcase their profiles and products to delegates and members of the public.
Giving closing remarks at a fundraising dinner for the congress last Friday, Zanu PF national chairman Simon Khaya Moyo said the party’s congress would draw delegates from every corner of the country and this would be a perfect opportunity for companies to exhibit.
“Congress, to this end, presents a unique opportunity for businesses to market themselves,” he said.
Moyo said Zanu PF and the corporate world had always had a cordial relationship and the congress presented another opportunity to grow this kinship.
“It is no secret that even the war of liberation would not have escalated in magnitude if Zanla and Zipra forces did not get the material support from some of our pre-independence businesspeople who provided material and financial support that proved critical to political organisation on the ground,” he said.
“For example, the Tawengwa family and Mushandirapamwe Hotel and the Machipisa family in Highfield, the Tafi Moyo and Sivako families in Bulawayo, to mention a few come to mind in this regard.
“Having worked closely with umdala, the late Joshua Nkomo, I am privy to how critical their sacrifice was to the struggle.”
Zanu PF hosted a fundraising gala last Friday where the party says it raised $1 million for its December congress.
Under fire Vice-President Joice Mujuru was the guest of honour.
