ZANU PF is set to spend over $1 million on a solidarity march in support of President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
The bulk of the budget will cover food and transport costs for the 300 000 people expected to attend the rally.
ZANU PF Youth League secretary for commissariat Godfrey Tsenengamu outlined the reasons for the march as follows:
We believe our leader is under attack, locally and internationally. There are countries like the USA [United States], which are always criticising him and we need to show support for our leader. Locally, we have parties that are talking about the transitional government.
We are gathering to show support for our leader. He won the elections and he cannot be distracted by noise coming from other areas. We will always have Gamatox and G-40 remnants and it is not surprising that we will have dissenting voices within the party, but we will not agree at the same time, all the times.
The solidarity march was initially mulled as a youth projected but has now been inherited by the ZANU PF main wing.
The date for the event has not yet been confirmed.
