Zanu-PF National Youth Commissar, Godfrey Tsenengamu told party youths that they will be left out to dry if they used President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s name to commit crimes.
Tsenengamu also implored the youths to appreciate the austerity measures that are being implemented by the government.
Speaking to party youths at a meeting at the party’s district headquarters in Kwekwe on Friday, Tsenegamu said:
There are some among us who have developed a habit of abusing the name of the President in committing crimes.
Let me warn you that such actions are tantamount to corruption. If you are caught, you will face the full wrath of the law.
Do not expect President Mnangagwa or the party to come to your rescue. The party will not hesitate to discipline such people as they drag the name of the party and the President into disrepute.
We cannot expect the President to do everything by himself just because we elected him to be President.
Everyone has a role to play and it is our duty as the party’s vanguard to play our role and support the President in implementing the austerity measures.
Let us appreciate the austerity measures as they are necessary if the country is to heal. There are no shortcuts to the economic turnaround strategy.
