United Democratic Alliance, Lovemore Cheure
The Daniel Shumba-led United Democratic Alliance (UDA) aspiring Member of Parliament (MP) for Masvingo Urban, Lovemore Chevure has pledged to work for the transformation of the lives of residents if he wins in the upcoming elections.
Chevure, who is a pastor with the New Vision World Ministries, said he decided to contest for the parliamentary seat having worked with ordinary people for a long time.
"Having been working with the public as a pastor, I now have insight into the real challenges being experienced by our people; such problems as unemployment, expensive residential stands and poor roads infrastructure," Cheure said.
He promised to establish a constituency development trust fund which would be resourced by well-wishers and controlled by people with divergent political views.
"I'm going to set up a trust fund which will benefit all opposition political parties and will be composed of the youth, people with disabilities the elderly, and will be non-partisan," Chevure said.
He also joined the chorus of all the other eight candidates vying for the same seat, calling for the building of a new secondary school in Rujeko high density suburbs as well as the upgrading of Chimusana Bridge.
Chevure said he would work to lessen the burden of unemployment by creating suitable operating space for entrepreneurs and providing them with affordable land.
He, however, failed to state where he would get the land from since most land is owned by either the national government or local authorities.
