ZANU PF national chairperson and Defence Minister Oppah Zvipange Muchinguri-Kashiri said that the people who marched during the MDC-led demonstrations last Thursday are poor. She said that if people owned something, they would not be easily persuaded to get into the streets. Addressing Zanu-PF leaders drawn from across Masvingo during a provincial inter-district conference held at Masvingo Polytechnic College, Muchinguri said
The demonstrations led by Chamisa that have been taking place are a sign of poverty, if those people were masters of their own destiny and self-sufficient they would not be easily fooled to go into the streets, they will actually be in a position to pay those who want to coax them to demonstrate. Some people are easily misled to go into the streets because they have nothing.
