PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa’s leadership style continues to attract admirers, with top National Patriotic Front leaders in Kwekwe admitting it is the reason behind their re-joining Zanu PF.
Some of the people who left the political party were paraded by the Zanu PF leadership in Kwekwe this Sunday and pledged loyalty to the ruling party.
“I am back to the big house to support President Mnangagwa. These people you see here are representing those at home. Show us the way to President Mnangagwa and to ZANU PF. We were lost for the past 10 years. We were really lost and we are back home and this time for good.”
“We are happy that the National Political Commissar is here to show us the way. We left ZANU PF because of factions. We are happy that the President has shown his willingness to end factionalism in the party. These comrades are really brave. We are back to drink milk. Where we were there was just but nothing.”
The ZANU PF leadership welcomed the members and urged them to be patient in assuming leadership positions.
“We welcome you all. ZANU PF is there to build the economy. We need to be on the same wavelength for the country to go forward. Arguments can bring development. We are restructuring our cells up so we have a strong party. We need peace and development. We need a strong foundation,” said Patrick Chinamasa, Zanu PF’s Acting National Political Commissar.
“We know we might have differences but we don’t want violence in the party. You are going to be part of this great family. We are happy you came to support this great party. Under the visionary leadership of President Mnangagwa vision 2030 is quite achievable,” said Engineer Daniel Mackenzi Ncube, Zanu PF’s Midlands provincial chairperson.
In 2018, NPF contested in the harmonised elections and only managed to get a single seat in Kwekwe central constituency through the late legislator Honourable Masango Matambanadzo.
