President Robert Mugabe has come up with a 10 point plan to counter protests bent on ousting him from power. Zanu-PF Secretary for Administration Dr Ignatius Chombo told The Sunday Mail that President Mugabe laid the essential framework to guide Zanu-PF and the entire nation during the ruling party’s Politburo and Central Committee meetings in Harare last week.

Dr Chombo said, “As the party’s Secretary for Administration, I want to remind party members and the rest of Zimbabweans of the 10 exhortations which were made by the President during the Politburo and Central Committee (meetings) last week.

“These exhortations are what will guide the party accordingly as we prepare to go for the December Conference as well as position ourselves against the threats posed by the West. “Firstly, there is need to organise the party from cell, village, branch, district and provinces.

We should also genuinely unite the people under the banner of Zanu-PF. We should also undertake to shun factionalism, divisions, nepotism, tribalism and regionalism.“The President also implored us to shun corruption at all levels of society, listen to the concerns of the people, stop jostling for positions and wait to be elected by the people and respect the choice of the electorate, be a leadership of good conduct, which stays with the people always.

“We should teach people the party line and strategy; be orderly and systematic in doing things; remain people-oriented by knowing how the people live, what their problems are and then proffer solutions; be cautious of social media and avoid using it as platforms to attack each other and settle scores.”
