Zanu-PF says it will not pay for Mugabe rally venue

Bulawayo City Council (BCC) has ordered Zanu-PF to pay for the venue of President Robert Mugabe’s upcoming youth interface rally in Bulawayo. The rally is scheduled to be held at White City Stadium on Saturday.

BCC is arguing that although President Mugabe will be the guest, the event was not national. Zanu-PF Bulawayo Province Youth Presidential Interface Rally organising chairperson Absolom Sikhosana criticised the MDC-T run council saying that they cannot deny Mugabe any venue in the country. He said that they will not pay for the venue. Said Sikhosana:

That is utmost madness, that’s where the opposition is missing it. You can’t deny the President any facility in the country. It’s unheard of and this is where the so-called opposition parties show that they are confused. The President is the President of everyone, them included. They need to behave. We are going to the White City Stadium and nobody can stop us from going there.
