President Robert Mugabe yesterday urged members of the Zanu PF party to stop engaging in demonstrations against each other. He also told party members to use party internal mechanisms instead of discussing issues in the media. This follows demonstrations against Saviour Kasukuwe this week, and demonstrations against Eunice Sandi-Moyo and Sarah Mahoka last week.
Speaking at the State House while receiving belated birthday presents from cabinet ministers, the President said:
If there are wrongs he has done we have a dignified way of looking at ills and wrong doings of all of us. That’s why we have the organs of the party and I was saying to the Vice President the other day that let’s remind people that we have organs starting from right down the cell, branch, district and province.
Iyi yowe, yowe mupaper, yowe yowe mademonstrations (taking issues to the media and demonstrations) it’s not the Zanu way, it was never, ever, ever the way of our party which has created us. This is a primitive way of doing things actually.
We are a dignified party and if we are going to punish someone we will punish him even to the extent of dismissing him. Zvekungo zhambatata-zhambatata (let’s not shout all over the place) and if The Herald is to act like the opposition, richiri paper here (is it still worthy)?
