Zanu-PF national chairman Cde Simon Khaya Moyo has said the private sector is key to the successful implementation of Zim Asset through funding, particularly in the capital intensive infrastructure and utilities cluster.Addressing the Mashonaland West provincial and district leadership last weekend, Cde Khaya Moyo said Treasury alone could not fund implementation of projects under the economic blueprint.

“There is no doubt that Zim Asset needs funding if project implementation and meeting targets are to be realised,” he said.

“Treasury cannot shoulder such responsibilities alone. The private sector also has a major role to play in this effort, hence the importance of collaboration.”

Cde Khaya Moyo said the private sector could partner Government through joint ventures and Build-Operate and Transfer arrangements, particularly in public works, energy, roads, water and sanitation sectors.

Cde Khaya Moyo said the key to the success of Zim Asset was meticulous implementation.

Turning to the leadership, he said Zanu-PF would be guided by the need to fulfil the expectations of Zimbabweans who trusted the party with their votes.

Cde Khaya Moyo said corruption needed to be weeded out within the rank and file of the party, saying the country would not be condemned to perpetual failure because of a few individuals.

Party provincial chairman Cde Temba Mliswa said more should be done to realise maximum benefits from investments, especially from China.

He expressed reservations at suspected interference and spying on the provincial executive by some senior party officials.

The conference brought together Government ministers and Politburo members who included secretary for indigenisation and empowerment Cde Saviour Kasukuwere, secretary for environment and tourism Cde Francis Nhema and production and labour secretary Cde Dzikamai Mavhaire.
