The buses are expected to carry about 100 000 youths based in the second largest city. Sources said more could be hired.

The march is being organised by youths linked to the G40 faction that is fighting against VP Emerson Mnangagwa in the battle to succeed President Robert Mugabe.

The march has been dismissed by some youths from Mnangagwa’s faction as a waste of time and resources.

Speaking to, Bulawayo youth league political commissar, Bornface Mushure, said they were happy as a province as they had managed to reach the target as “ordered” by their national executive leadership.

“Bulawayo youths will leave the city on the 24th of May and return soon after the march on the 25th. The solidarity march will also bring youths together and so that they shun factionalism.

‘We don’t want Bulawayo youths to be involved in any unruly behaviour as this is an honour for presdent Mugabe,” he said.

However, Musure could not disclose the source of the funds for hiring so many buses.

But former Zanu PF youth leader, Godfrey Tsenengamu, said he was going to mobilise youths against the march. He said with the economy dying, Zanu PF cannot afford to blow money on a march which will last for only a few hours.

“In 2007, we had a similar march by Jabulani Sibanda and what happened in the March 2008 elections? Mugabe lost dismally!,” Tsenengamu said.
