Addressing Zanu-PF supporters and Johane Masowe Vadzidzi VaJeso congregants at Centre Zimbabwe Africa High School built by Mudzidzi Wimbo at his shrine in Madziwa yesterday, President Emmerson Mnangagwa scoffed at G40 for creating the New Patriotic Front.
In his speech Mnangagwa said those that form their own parties after being expelled from Zanu-PF are misguided and lost individuals. Said Mnangagwa:
Kungotarira chete kuti kuwanda kwamakaita uku uri musangano weZanu-PF kana kune umwe hake angave murume, angave mukadzi, angave murefu, angave mupfupi angarota kuita umwe musangano kukwikwidza Zanu-PF ngaabike doro kuti ko mudzimu wekwangu mandirashireiko kuti ndiite zvakadai? (You are here in your numbers because of Zanu-PF and if there is anyone who dreams of forming another party to contest against Zanu-PF let the brew some beer to appease their ancestors and ask why they have been forsaken).
Kuti nyika nevanhu vayo naJehova vachienda uku ini ndoenda kwavanobva? Ndiko kurashika. Kana kune vamwe vane mweya iwoyo ibva wangoti mweya waLegion tama pandiri ndifambewo nevamwe. (The country is going in a new direction but you insist in going where we have come from. That is being lost, If there are those with that spirit command it out and say “Legion’s spirit let me walk with the nation”).
