Kennedy Mandaza, ZANU-PF South Africa Spokesman, has invited Diaspora Zimbabweans to benefit from opportunities in their home country.

Mandaza said ZANU-PF has in the past recruited technocrats such as Prof Jonathan Moyo, Nkosana Moyo and Mthuli Ncube and similar opportunities are still available for Diapora Zimbabweans who want to be leaders in the party and government.
Mandaza said ZANU-PF has been going through a restructuring and a number of Diapora Zimbabweans are already leading directorates in the party.
