President Mugabe has said opposition MDC-T leader Mr Morgan Tsvangirai might as well quit now as he has no hope of overcoming a ‚Äúmammoth political party‚ÄĚ like Zanu-PF in next year‚Äôs harmonised elections.
Zanu-PF‚Äôs First Secretary made the remarks at the Zanu PF National Youth League Assembly in Harare yesterday.
President Mugabe said Mr Tsvangirai was left trembling by the huge turnout at Presidential Youth Interface Meetings organised by Zanu-PF‚Äôs Youth League.
‚Äė‚ÄėThe rallies, kuvamba nekuorganiser kwamakaita mhuri yose yeZimbabwe kuti vaite One Million Man March,‚Äô‚Äô said the President.
‚Äė‚ÄėVamwe vaiti hazvibudirire tichaona.
‚Äė‚ÄėEven amongst us, some wanted it to fail.
‚Äė‚ÄėBut no. You were brave enough, you were courageous enough, you were hardworking and industrious enough.
‚Äė‚ÄėYou wanted it to succeed and there it was! Shudhu, yakabuda!
‚Äė‚ÄėIt made not just the opposition tremble. Vakavamba vana Tsvangirai zvino kudedera nekumabvi uku, ndopakabva pavamba pasusukidza hurwere hwacho.
‚Äė‚ÄėAiwa tinoti kandai chipfumo pasi hapana kwamunosvika.
‚Äė‚ÄėZanu-PF is the mammoth party of the country.
‚Äė‚ÄėLook at its history; takabva kupi?‚Äô‚Äô
President Mugabe said Zanu-PF would remain unmatchable as its revolutionary pedigree was being perpetuated through young people.
‚Äė‚ÄėMayouth ava vana vemarevolutionaries. Ihama dzemarevolutionaries,‚ÄĚ he said.
‚Äė‚ÄėKana ndichiti marevolutionaries handireve – zvandanga ndichitaura uku – vakabata pfuti chete, kana vakabata mapfumo chete, vose nevaive kuno kumusha vaienda kumajeri, vaibatwa vachiiswa kumakeep, vamwe vaisandudzirwa mumapako, vaienda kumadetentions, vaienda kumaprisons, vaibviswa pahushe, vaibviswa mumisha vachinzi ibvai kuno endai munogara uko.‚Äô‚Äô
President Mugabe implored Zanu-PF youths to register to vote during the ongoing voter registration exercise which started last month and is set to intensify from Tuesday.
‚Äė‚ÄėDuring your programmes, you must carry the message, encouraging the youth to get registered as voters,‚Äô‚Äô he said.
‚Äė‚ÄėDon‚Äôt forget; that one is important.
And please be versed with the newly-introduced Biometric Voter Registration programme. Ivai neruzivo rwemavhoterwo achaitwa this time matsva.
‚Äė‚ÄėNdiyo inonzi Biometric Voter Registration programme.
‚Äė‚ÄėWith the support of the current leadership of the Youth League, I am convinced that you will successfully fulfill your constitutional mandate of mobilising the youth to vote for the party.‚Äô‚Äô
President Mugabe showered praises on the party‚Äôs youths, saying the success of the Million-Man March and the Interface Meetings had given the organ a firm pedestal from which to mobilise ahead of next year‚Äôs polls.
‚ÄúDear delegates, we are meeting only a few months before the 2018 general elections and I am happy and grateful to note that the Youth League has already commenced programmes meant to mobilise then youth for these elections,‚ÄĚ he said.
‚ÄúI urge you to make use of your experience gained during the Presidential Youth Interface rallies and other programmes such as this National Youth Assembly to explain to the youth on developmental and empowerment programmes.‚ÄĚ
