First Lady Grace Mugabe urged Zimbabweans to remain united and avoid being used by the country’s detractors to demonstrate against government. She also said the people of Libya miss Gaddafi who was labelled a dictator.
Speaking as the guest speaker at the commissioning of Zibagwe Bridge along Chivhu-Nyazura highway yesterday she said,
We want peace and unity, the way we do it in Zanu-PF, Pamberi nekubatana. If we are united, we have peace and we work towards the development of our country. Let us not be used to fight amongst ourselves, while our detractors watch television in their homes. Are you aware they make fools out of us? They come here, recruit a few people whom the give a few dollars to create disharmony and havoc in Zimbabwe. Isusu tosimukira US$20 chaiyo, kurwisana, topondana and they will be busy watching TVs saying look at those fools – tichirwisana, tichitemana nemapadza. Look at what they have done in Libya. There is no Libya to talk about now. Vanhu veko vari kufunga Gaddafi everyday vachimurota but Gaddafi akafa haachamuka. Let us not be used tichiitiswa zvinhu zvisina maturo tichimukira hurumende yedu inotichengeta. Look, what is happening in Iraq as well. They lied that Saddam Hussein was a dictator with weapons of mass destruction.
