President Emmerson Mnangagwa said ZANU PF is the only party entitled to govern because it singularly fought for the country’s liberation from the yoke of colonial bondage.
Speaking during a ZANU PF cell verification meeting in Kwekwe on Saturday, Mnangagwa also urged party members to defend the country by voting in large numbers. He said:
Our party has a history, it is a party which liberated the country. It is a party which brought independence to the country. Be part of the rulers and not the ruled, because this is a mass party.
For us, in order to vote in elections today, it is because of ZANU PF. Today we are able to choose our leaders after every five years a situation which was brought about by voting.
We must therefore be serious when it comes to the issue of voting. The freedom enjoy today of voting is the freedom which came through the barrel of the gun and it must be safeguarded.
We need to safeguard our freedom and independence through voting. For us to get a fresh mandate from the people, you must go out there and vote in your numbers.
ZANU PF liberated the country and therefore it is the only party which must govern.
… You need to register to vote. We sweated during the liberation war for the country’s independence.
Now things are just easy you just need to go out there and vote.
You must safeguard the independence of the country by voting.
