“President Mugabe’s functionaries continue to harass citizens so it will be interesting to know what he is going to say at the joint rallies and if it will help our desperate situation,” said Clifford Hlatshwayo, the party’s youth national secretary for information.
“Mugabe has preached peace and his party’s youths have continued to cause mayhem across the country. Savanhu and Chipangano are wrecking havoc in Mbare. Jabulani Sibanda continues to terrorise villagers – first in Masvingo, and now we hear he is eyeing Manicaland. Youth brigades roam freely in Tsholotsho. What message does the President have for us?” asked Hlatshwayo.
He said Mugabe would need to assure Zimbabweans that during the next elections soldiers would remain in their barracks, and youth brigades and bases would be disbanded.
“Chipangano and Sibanda are issues he might find really sticky,” he added. There have been reports that all parties will address the same rallies in an effort to tame the political violence that has blighted the country’s political scene for so long.Post published in: News
