ZANU PF pledges to protect nation’s sovereignty

Story by Josephine Mugiyo

ZANU PF President and First Secretary Cde Emmerson Mnangagwa says the ruling party will continue working hard to preserve the country’s liberation struggle legacy and protect its sovereignty.

He was addressing thousands of ZANU PF supporters in Centenary, Mashonaland Central Province this Saturday.

After Zimbabwe attained independence in 1980, some Western nations have continued to eye the politics of the country, with some standing accused of interference.

In his address to the thousands of party supporters in Centenary this Saturday, President Mnangagwa said while some elements have a desire to be ruled by the country’s former colonisers, the ruling party will not agree to that.

“When they gave us sanctions, they thought Zimbabweans would revolt so that they bring back their stooges to rule and then they start looting again. That will never happen, we are united as a country. Cold or hot, we will always be united. There is no one else who can rule besides ZANU PF because we know how to preserve the legacy. Our fellow black people have a desire to be ruled by our former colonisers. We will not agree to that,” said the President.

President Mnangagwa reiterated that Zimbabwe will build its economy based on the needs of the country, without interference from outsiders.

“We are building our country according to what we have agreed here in Zimbabwe, not what others want. We need to get along as we rule our country,” he added.

Since assuming office, President Mnangagwa has initiated and implemented various development projects to improve livelihoods.

This Saturday, President Mnangagwa outlined to the people of Mashonaland Central some of the successes that have been attained by the Second Republic, cutting across various sectors, including mining, agriculture and infrastructure development.

“At national level, we would have load shedding. Since last month, we now get 609 megawatts of electricity,” he said.

The President reiterated the need to maintain peace and unity during the election season.

“I am happy that here in Mashonaland Central people are not losing their identity. Right now, when Munhumutapa sees us united and he releases blessings on us.”

ZANU PF’s campaign programme is gathering pace countrywide, as the ruling party targets more than 5 million votes in the August 23 General Elections.
