Defense Minister Oppah Muchinguri Kashiri has urged Zimbabweans to ignore protest calls by the country’s leading opposition party the MDC alliance calling them retrogressive to the development being spearheaded by Zanu PF led government.
The Defense Minister was speaking at a belated celebratory function in Bulilima District where Cde Mangaliso Ndlovu won the seat in parliament. Taking it to the podium Mrs Kashiri called protests barbaric acts:
There are some people (opposition political elements) who are mobilising the masses to stage demonstrations on the 16th of August to go about killing people, bombing and destroying infrastructure to cause despondency in our country so that they overthrow the constitutionally-elected Government
As Government, we urge the citizens not to take heed of the planned mass protests. Such barbaric acts are predisposed to retard economic and social development being advanced by the Government in sync with the aspirations of the national vision to transform the country into an upper middle income economy by 2030
