Headmaster warned

Zanu PF supporters last week warned school heads in Masvingo province to show allegiance only to Zanu PF or face the consequences for failing to tow the Zanu PF line of thinking.

Addressing villagers at Muchakata Business Centre in Masvingo Central district, Zanu PF Bikita District Coordinating Committee chairperson, Saviours Masase warned school heads to start actively supporting Zanu PF or face the dire consequences reminiscent of the atrocities during the liberation struggle.

He said his warning was in line with the forthcoming crucial polls.

“The time has arrived for teachers, especially headmasters to closely support Zanu PF. Elections are around the corner and school heads that do not support us will face the music. We will deal with those who don’t support us,” said Masase.

Masase’s utterances are a direct violation of the provisions of the Global Political Agreement (GPA) as well as the calls by the three principals to end political violence and intimidation.

The Progressive Union of Zimbabwe last week castigated Zanu PF for issuing the threats saying the statement was loaded with stage-managed bravado.

“We are too used to such bravado. Our experience is that there are serious implications for such fly-by-night politicians and this little politician must ask other politicians from his party who tried to use the same path to advance their political ambitions – they only saw their fall,” said the PTUZ in a statement issued in Masvingo.
