Mnangagwa Says Mugabe
Ordered Him To Win
Norton At ‘All Costs’

Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa
yesterday declared that the Norton seat was
a “must-win” for Zanu PF, saying President
Robert Mugabe had directed him to ensure the
party is victorios in the by-election slated for
tomorrow “at all costs”.
Addressing a Zanu PF rally to drum up support
for the ruling party’s candidate, Ronald
Chindedza, Mnangagwa said the electorate
should not waste their votes on a non-Zanu
PF candidate, as that person would not access
State resources to develop the constituency.
“You should vote for the rulers, not for the
ruled. Vote to be part of the rulers, not the
ruled,” he said.AMnangagwa said after doling out agricultural
land, the Zanu PF government was now into
provision of residential stands to economically
empower its supporters.
The Vice-President said Zanu PF was firmly
in control of the affairs of the country and
threatened to deal decisively with white
commercial farmers still opposed to the land
reform programme.
“We produce our food, we have our wives and
make children, so where does the white man
come in?” he said.
“The white man should go back where he came
from, we will keep our Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe
will never be as colony again.
“If they dare challenge us, we will thrash
them. But I am not saying people should go
around taking land willy-nilly. There are
procedures to follow, so that there is no
chaos.”
Mnangagwa urged Zanu PF political commissar
and Local Government minister Saviour
Kasukuwere to weed out “corrupt” MDC-T
councillors running local authorities across
the country.
“We have a fearless boy (Kasukuwere), who,
if you set him on someone, you go to bed
peacefully because you know he will carry out
the task. He will deal with those corrupt
MDC-T councillors,” he said.newsday
