Addressing delegates who attended the launch of the Zanu-PF election manifesto held at the Harare International Conference Centre (HICC) on Friday afternoon, President Emmerson Mnangagwa said the party is bigger than an individual.
He criticised those he says have a sense of entitlement. He called on Zanu-PF members to respect the rights of the people and accept the primary election results. Christopher Mutsvangwa wrote a strongly worded letter to party commissar Retired Lieutenant-General Engelbert Rugeje challenging his defeat in Norton. Said Mnangagwa:
The days of imposition and chicanery are dead and buried. Never again to be resurrected no matter a person’s standing. We do everything for the people. We must fully respect the rights of the people. The voice of the people is the voice of God. The task ahead of us after the primary elections is huge but we must unite. As we reflect, I encourage us to be guided by party constitution. It (constitution) obliges us to abide by it. Each member must popularise the party because it is bigger than an individual. Ukada kutora ZANU-PF uchiisa muhomwe mako inokupisa, ugotsva, uchingotsva kusvika waibudisa muhomwe mako.
He however said the politburo will meet to discuss challenges faced in the primary elections.
