Major General Nyikayaramba urges chiefs to ensure Mugabe wins 2018 election

Posted by Tayana

Addressing chiefs during commemorations of the Traditional Leaders’ Day at 4 Brigade headquarters in Masvingo last Friday, Zimbabwe National Army Major General Douglas Nyikayaramba urged chiefs to ensure President Robert Mugabe wins the 2018 elections.

Said Nyikayaramba:

Did anyone ever say to a traditional chief that you are old, leave the chieftainship for me? That is unheard of. What will happen to the chief’s aides? We need to remind each other. No chief was voted for. No son has ever ordered his father to step down from his role as leader of the family, so the same applies to our case with President Mugabe. That is what we should remind each other when we meet. Whites want divide-and-rule, and they saw that Mugabe is the nerve centre of the country. Let us not sell the country for the love of sugar. We are here to strengthen the relationship between chiefs.

The Constitution requires chiefs to be non-partisan.
