HARARE– The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Zimbabwe , a sister
political movement to the Julius Malema-led EFF South Africa, has appointed
Dickson Rudairo Mapuranga to the position of national spokesperson, TellZim
News has learnt.
EFF Zimbabwe is led by Innocent
Ndibali and is working to make an impact on the local political arena as Malema’s
party has done in South Africa.
The movement, which claims to be
premised of Pan Africanist values with a determination to fight for a united
Africa and the economic emancipation of black people, has also seen like-minded
political parties being formed in Namibia, Liberia and Malawi.
Mapuranga, who hails from Chivhu,
said young people must take the lead in economic affairs of the country by
participating in national policy-making activities.
 “My appointment as EFF Zimbabwe national
spokesperson has come at a time when I am making commitments to change the
lives of people in Zimbabwe by leading an exemplary life.
“Economic revival rests in the
agricultural and mining industries. As the EFF, we will therefore push for youth
empowerment in these areas. This will increase young people’s participation in the
two most critical areas of the economy. Extraction comes first before
processing,” said Mapuranga.
He said he acknowledged the need
for youths to play a bigger role in national issues by taking advice from
seasoned politicians.
“It is my view that economic
development needs intergenerational participation with a blend of experience
and new ideas. It is therefore my considered view that the youth should engage
the preceding generations for wisdom on how to transform their lives,” said
Mapuranga is currently studying
for a degree in Media and Cultural Studies at Great Zimbabwe University (GZU).
He is founding CEO of Bread
Basket Farmers Association (BBFA) and is one of the founders of Core Miners Association.
