By A Correspondent- Zanu PF President Emmerson Mnangagwa has ordered his party to intensify intimidation tactics ahead of the crunch 2023 elections at the same time, declaring that he would never be removed from power.
Mnangagwa told a Zanu PF politburo meeting at the weekend that the party was targeting to grab MDC Alliance strongholds in urban areas and pleaded with party supporters from the grassroots to bankroll the 2023 campaign. Mnangagwa said:
Zanu PF rule is here to stay. We are the only revolutionary party with an indisputable rich past and the progressive and inclusive vision for a brighter, more prosperous future.
Over and above these constitutional programmes, all leagues of the party must begin to prepare in earnest for the 2023 harmonised general elections.
As we approach the 2023 harmonised elections, our electorate must keep alert and never be deceived by individual fantasies and unbridled political ambitions disguised as political wisdom. Proxies and conduits of neo-imperialism bent on sowing division and disunity among us must be exposed and defeated all the time.
The opposition has dismally failed our people in urban areas. Therefore, all party wings must work extremely hard to ensure that we mobilise the urban vote for a resounding party victory.
