ZANU PF Youth League secretary, Pupurai Togarepi, has warned the opposition, MDC not to pick up fights which it cannot win with the ruling party.
Togarepi advised the MDC that ZANU PF will rule Zimbabwe until donkeys grow hones. He said:
The wise always say do not pick fights you can’t win and the clever ones stick to this time old piece of wisdom, it is free and has been proven by history to be a key ingredient to success and a happy life, but sadly and rather regrettably, our political opponents in the MDC are naive and fail to understand such basics.
Zanu-PF is the ruling party of Zimbabwe, and with a very weak and out-of-sorts opposition such as the MDC, we will rule this country until donkeys grow horns, they can only dream, but then dreams are for free.
We say Zanu-PF will rule for ages to come, not because we are undemocratic, but purely because we are the people’s preferred party as has been proven since the turn of this year where the party has won by-elections with little effort.
Togarepi’s remarks follow threats made by MDC vice-chairperson, Job Sikhala over the past weekend. Sikhala gave President Emmerson Mnangagwa a 14-day ultimatum to engage opposition leader Nelson Chamisa for dialogue.
Meanwhile, ZANU PF has won almost all by-elections held since the 2018 general elections.
