President Mugabe says rumour mongers are destroying the ruling party.
“We are united at the top. Whatever people might say, we just continue and continue to do our work. Lots of things have been said about my VPs and we have said let’s do our work and ignore them. Serve the people and that’s it.
“Rumours hatidi, hatidi marumours isusu. Talk to the people using the voice of unity, language of unity and not language of division. Don’t divide.
Rumours hatidi, running from one area to another. No that’s not Zanu-PF. You may see the information coming to you, fine. But you should not be the rumour monger yourself nekuti dzimwe nhema dzinotitemesa musoro, dzimwe dzehuroyi dzimwe dzei aah. Unosvika kupi nadzo uchiti pautautu hwedu apa, tinotovareva. Chero mumwe auya oti musapiwa maranjisi navanaMnangagwa anenge azodzwa vanenge vabva kun’anga dzavo. Iro ranjisi rine makoko! Kana! takabvira kupi nerwendo urwu tiri pamwechete? (Some make allegations of witchcraft meant to divide us not knowing that our unity dates back many years ago)
“This is 2016, takararama jeri tiri tose tikabuda, kunana Mozambique tiri tose, tikaona independence tiri tose. Muroyi azouya nhasi? ( We were together in jail and later released, we were together in Mozambique and we witnessed out independence together so today we have a wizard among us?) Ndingade kuziva anonzi ndiye muroyi wacho, inonzi ndiyo n’anga yacho ndogoionawo ini. (I would like to know the one who is said to be a wizard or to see the so called inyanga)
President Mugabe commended youth secretary, Cde Kudzai Chipanga, for organising the One Million Man march, which he said went on well.
He said the youths were important in the party as they were the future and heirs of the inheritance.
“Vana Chipanga tinoda kukutendai. I am glad you are here. Mukomana uyu akaorganiser One Million Man March yakavhundutsa. That was a demonstration of what we can do in the future and the party. So we say to you well done, congratulations. Ndimi the youths vanotumwa nanamai vanodefender vanamai nababa. Ndimi vagari venhaka and you should be worried about the future of the party much more than the Women’s League.
President Mugabe said factions did not have any place in the ruling party as Zanu-PF operated on organs and not factions.
“To hell with factions I would say. The party knows nothing that is a faction. Our constitution doesn’t allow factions, we only have party organs but you will find people wanting to divide the party.
“There had been some instances by outsiders thinking the party is divided, demonstrating and appealing nationally for persons within the party to join and I am glad they have been shown that our party is not that stupid,” he said.
