THE Zanu-PF Matabeleland South province chairperson, who is also the Insiza North Member of Parliament elect and outgoing Deputy Minister of Public Service, Andrew Langa has dedicated the recent whitewash win by the revolutionary party in his province to President Mugabe.

In an exclusive interview with The People’s Voice, Langa said the resounding victory was as a result of the people-centred programmes and policies which were initiated by President Mugabe which touched the hearts of the people.

He said the people from Matabeleland South province went back to the drawing board and made an informed decision to vote for Zanu-PF, adding that consistency in principle by the president was the biggest selling point for Zanu-PF and people decided to shun the enemy by voting MDCs and other political parties out.

“The clear, people-centred programmes and policies initiated by the president of the Republic of Zimbabwe who is also the Zanu-PF president rang bells in the minds of the people of Matabeleland South and they went out in their numbers and voted for Zanu-PF candidates,” he alluded.

“These programmes like the land redistribution and indigenisation and economic empowerment steered Zanu-PF into this thunderous victory.”

He said everyone knows that the candidature of President Mugabe was undoubtedly incontestable and silenced those that talk of vote rigging saying they were enemies of democracy as he said the July 2013 elections were a reflection of the people’s will.

Langa dismissed the MDCs who were saying that the Matabeleland region was their stronghold saying the MDCs had lied to the people of Matabeleland, thus this time around they were voted out together with their lieutenants.

“The Matabeleland region was never the MDCs stronghold,” he said.

“The MDCs came and lied to our people in the 2008 election but this time around the people discovered the truth and proved the opposition political parties wrong.”

He however urged the people from the region to work together for the betterment of the region and the country at large.

Langa challenged fellow region mates to work in unison and consolidate what the region achieved so that they can chart the way forward for economic revival and human resource development through the construction and maintaining of the educational infrastructure in the region.

In the recent harmonised elections, Zanu-PF collected all the 13 Lower House seats.
