(HERALD) Put Zim first, youths told

Put Zim first, youths told

YOUTHS have been urged to desist from furthering imperialist agenda to destabilise the country, as doing so would reverse gains of the liberation struggle. Speaking after distributing 400 balls to various schools in Mazowe West constituency, Youth Development and Employment Creation Deputy Minister, Cde Saviour Kasukuwere deplored youths that were lured by opposition parties to reverse the gains of the country’s independence.

"Zimbabwe was won after a fierce struggle, voting for the western-sponsored opposition parties would be a clear betrayal of not only Zanu-PF as a liberation party, but also to the spirit of the gallant sons and daughters lying at Chimoio, Tembwe and all those who sacrificed their lives for the liberation of this country," he said.

He said Zimbabweans should put their country first in all they do adding that Zimbabwe is for Zimbabweans, hence everything people do should put Zimbabwe first.

"The Government has put in place various projects to promote Zimbabwean youths who appreciate and understand their history."

Cde Kasukuwere encouraged youths to take advantage of the ruling party’s vibrant youth league, which provided a platform to participate in business, politics and sports.

"Youths are our future leaders so they should actively participate in all activities related to governance hence the need to learn the party’s ideologies must be their number one priority.

"Zanu-PF as a party gives chances to the young generation to engage in developmental activities as well as sport so youths should fully utilise the league’s platform where they learn and steadily mature to be good leaders," he said.

Cde Kasukuwere said Zanu-PF represents the interests of the Zimbabwean people and will not lead people astray hence youths should stand with the party in defending their sovereignty.

He expressed concern at the way some constituencies deceived the ruling party in the run up to the harmonised elections before turning against it during polls.
