Charuka expressed his gratitude to party supporters during a “thank you” rally held in Bulawayo last Thursday. He emphasized that the Zanu-PF cadres are committed to continuing their work and delivering for the people of Zimbabwe. He also assured the audience that President Mnangagwa’s initiated projects would not stop and that a prosperous Zimbabwe aligned with Vision 2030 would be achieved.
