A senior ZANU PF official has urged members of the opposition MDC Alliance to forsake their party and join the ruling party as it is set to rule “forever”.
ZANU PF Women’s League national political commissar Maybe Mbowa told party supporters at a star rally last week that MDC-A leader Nelson Chamisa will “never” rule Zimbabwe.
She also said that MDC founding leader, the late Morgan Tsvangirai realised his impotence in removing ZANU PF from power, hence he decided to join the party in the inclusive government. Said Mbowa:
I want to tell Chamisa today that this country will never be run by an opposition.
It is better for the MDC supporters to join the big tent. Zanu-PF will rule forever.
Tsvangirai finally came to a realisation that if you can’t beat them, join them.
That is the reason why he joined us in a Government of national unity in 2009. I advise opposition supporters to join the winning team because we have never failed.
Zimbabwe is for Zanu-PF and opposition supporters will find themselves voting for Zanu-PF when they get into the voting booths. That is how good Zanu-PF is.
Mbowa was drumming up support for the ZANU PF candidate, Clemence Chiduwa, in the forthcoming Zaka East Parliamentary by-election.
The seat, which has been held by ZANU PF since independence in 1980, fell vacant following the death of Kaston Gumbwanda on June 21.
