Villagers too clever for Zanu (PF)

Villagers here said that since Zanu (PF) believed in forced rally attendance, they would attend the gatherings in their thousands, but would vote otherwise come election time.

Remaining pockets of Zanu (PF) thugs continue to practice coercive politics to cow villagers into supporting the former ruling party.

“Members of the Zanu (PF) Murewa District Coordinating Committee drive around in their party vehicle, forcing people to attend party meetings and shun MDC activities. Since rural communities are vulnerable to acts of political thuggery, they reluctantly attend the forced rallies. This gives Mugabe and Zanu (PF) a false sense of popularity,” said a villager at Chigogodza.

Residents vowed that their vote in upcoming elections would be in favour of MDC-T and Tsvangirai, whatever the cost.

The Zimbabwean also learnt that rural areas were awash with plain clothes police officers and other state security agents, who have been assigned to study the people’s mood in the wake of the demise of Libyan Dictator, Muammar Gaddafi.

“The Mugabe administration fears the worst. Every state security agent has been hastily dispatched to his rural or urban home to assess how people have been processing the uprising in Libya and the death of Gaddafi,” said a plain clothes police officer at Chigogodza Business Centre.
