ZANU PF Vice President and Second Secretary Cde Dr C.D.G.N Chiwenga has called for Zimbabweans to uphold peace, unity and face the challenges posed by the opposition.
Speaking after a clean-up campaign held in at Pumula Old in Bulawayo yesterday, Vice President Chiwenga said that for a country to go forward it needs unity and peace. Called upon all Zimbabweans to remain united, focused and speak with one voice and as a nation unity should be a major strength.
“ Let us be united and confront the challenges posed by the opposition as one entity. Unity, Unity, Unity. That is how we, as ZANU PF prevail. Here in Bulawayo the late Vice President J.Nkomo left us and encouraged unity and we continue to stay united. I wish to reiterate that we are strong as we continue to be united in our diversity as Zimbabweans,” said the Vice President.
Vice President Chiwenga also called on peace to the candidates who are representing ZANU PF on the 26 March 2022 By- elections. He expected the candidates to have peace and unity going forward and that unity must be maintained in order for us to build our nation.
“The focus is now on throwing our collective weight behind the candidates that we elected to represent us in the 26 March By- Elections. We also want the election process to be defined by peace.,” he said
On violence, Vice President said that violence does not resolve any conflict. He urged Zimbabweans to always love each other and not to engage in violence.
“We dont want any violence. We condem it and give it the ultmost contempt it deserves. Violence is not developmental. Let us remind each other, including those in opposition," he said
Vice President Chiwenga also took an opportunity to urge Bulawayo residents to vote for candidates who were elected to represent ZANU PF.
“Let us all go and vote for ZANU PF on 26 March 2022. A ZANU PF win is a win for the people. It is a win for democracy. It is a win for development.," VP Chiwenga said
In his speech he urged people to vote the opposition out on 26 March 2022 By- Elections for change in towns and cities.
“This council has dimisally failed the electorate. It is also insensitive to the plight of the people. For instance how can the city council allow a private company to do quarry minning at the door steps of residents in Pumula North?. Is this just a case of sheer malice, or poor management practices or being unethical. This kind of madness must stop forthwith," he said.
