Zanu-PF national political commissar, Lieutenant General (Retired) Engelbert Rugeje has said that all aspiring legislators who lose the Zanu-PF Primary Elections automatically become campaign managers for the winners.Addressing supporters in Bulawayo, Rugeje also said that the party was now against any slogans which denigrate others. Said Rugeje
Losing candidates should be campaign managers for the winning candidate. That’s the new position. Those that will come out second best during primary elections should help the winners in their campaign. We don’t want to hear that losing candidates are campaigning against those that would have been elected to ensure the party wins resoundingly. We should be united and work together for the good of the party.
Let’s not waste time chanting denigrating slogans. We want unifying slogans, slogans that encourage development. This whole pasi na/phansi lo, when you have differences with another party member is not allowed. We should not say pasi nemhandu to another person even if they are from the opposition. Let’s show them, love. Everyone in Zimbabwe is a potential Zanu-PF supporter and our work as the Commissariat is to bring those people to the party.
