The One Million-Man March to be held by the Zanu-PF Youth League today is strictly meant to celebrate President Mugabe’s success as leader of the country since 1980 and as an African icon, the league’s deputy secretary, Cde Kudzai Chipanga, has said.
He said the event was meant for none other than President Mugabe. “As the youth wing of the ruling party it is our responsibility to mobilise the nation in support and celebration of our President.
“I want to reaffirm the fact that the march is meant for none other than our President and through the march we are saying that the President must be and will remain our President till death do us part,” said Cde Chipanga.
“We have invited all the wings of the party to support the march, which is meant to show our gratitude to President Robert Mugabe.
“We also invite churches, youth associations, students and everyone else who voted for the President in 2013 to join us as we appreciate His Excellency’s leadership,” said Cde Chipanga.
“We promise a march of its own kind as we celebrate the peaceful environment that has been brought by our President and the manner in which he is leading us towards economic solidarity.
“All provinces in the country will participate in the march and will have their assembly points in various parts of the capital.”
Preparations for the march were already set days before the event with close attention to health, finances, entertainment and security matters. The routes for the march had been decided as well but were withheld for security reasons. herald
