Chengetai Zvauya in ESIGODINI
President Emerson Mnangagwa has described his party, Zanu PF, as a moving elephant which can not be easily defeated or deterred by opposition political parties in the country.
Mnangagwa, the party’s First Secretary, made the remarks during the closing session of the annual conference in Esigodini Matebeleland South province at Umzingwane High School.
The conference which will run to December 16, 2018, is being held under the theme “Zimbabwe is Open For Business”.
“Zanu PF is boldly on the move and has an appointment with destiny. It will not be destroyed or destructed by anyone. We shall continue to work to make the lives of our people better,” he said.
“We are a moving elephant and we shall keep marching on. No one is going to stop us and those who want to bark can continue doing so. But we will continue to march and rule, “he said.
Mnangagwa said that his party was now focusing on economic development and not on politics as it had a duty to improve the lives and welfare of the people who had voted it into power.
He reiterated that Zanu PF was pursuing servant leadership which listens to the will of the people.
“The second republic is a servant leadership and we want those in leadership positions to be the servants of the people and serve them,” he said.
Mnangagwa also encouraged the party youths led by Pupurai Togarepi to remain disciplined and focused as they were the future leaders of the country.
“We want our youths to be focused and disciplined as they have a big role to play in the development of the party and the country. We have walked their road before as we were also youths in the past. The youths must learn from us and take the good we have done and leave out the wrongs we committed,” he said.
