ZANU PF national secretary for administration, Obert Mpofu said that ZANU PF’s victory in the by-elections held over the weekend proves that its a lie that people of Zimbabwe are now worse off than they were under former President Mugabe. He said:
The results dispel all beliefs and perceptions that are being floated around the globe and within the country that the people of Zimbabwe are in a worse situation than they were before.
We have been saying that whatever is happening, there is no Government in this world which can come up with policies which are meant to demoralise the people so everything that Government is doing is meant to better the people’s lives.
He warned the MDC that it will not win anything in future by-elections. Added Mpofu:
The people are very clear on what they want, they are very clear on the policies of the party, policies decided by the ruling party at their congresses and conferences so we are going to continue winning these elections whenever there is a by-election. The MDC should know that they won’t win anything.
