His Excellency the President and ZANU PF First Secretary Cde E.D Mnangagwa has called for Zimbabweans to remain united towards a peaceful and prosperous Zimbabwe for the present and future generations.
"We must remain united towards a peaceful and prosperous Zimbabwe for the present and future generations. The nation’s founding fathers moved past their differences and dedicated their life to bring equality, justice, and peace for all", President Mnangagwa said.
President Mnangagwa made these remarks yesterday at the Launch of the Community Engagement with Traditional Leaders which was held in Bulawayo.
He was accompanied by Minister of Defence and War Veterans Affairs, Hon O.C.Z Muchinguri Kashiri and Minister of State for Bulawayo Metropolitan Province Hon Judith Ncube.
President Mnangagwa appealed to chiefs and the general public to unite.
"I appeal to the Chiefs as they embark on this very important assignment to diligently carry out their duties guided by principles of Ubuntu. In the same vein, I also appeal to the general public to unite behind this noble cause. I urge the affected people and communities to co-operate with our Traditional Leaders in this process", he said.
His Excellency went on to urge Zimbabweans to respect traditional values.
"Our traditional values should be respected at all times and divisive ideologies that perpetuate conflict should be shunned. Shame on anyone who seeks to divide us", President Mnangagwa said.
President Mnangagwa,"I further call upon all the provinces and the nation at large to join hands in solidarity with this discourse. This irreversible process, we have embarked on will enhance our developmental agenda to strengthen the unity of our people through a shared narrative that affirms our common identity, dignity and humanity. Rest assured that my Government shall avail the necessary resources required for this initiative"
In his speech he also called people to contribute to nation building processes.
"Meanwhile, I call upon churches, civil society organisations and community leaders to continue contributing positively to this nation building process", President Mnangagwa added
