(TALKZIMBABWE) Let's rally behind Zanu PF

Let's rally behind Zanu PF

DEAR EDITOR — Resolutions adopted by Zanu PF at its National People’s Congress last December should be followed to the letter. Zanu PF has been in power since independence in 1980 and has withstood the test of time. Zanu PF has seen it all. It has fought electoral battles with different political parties, all of which are now extinct.

We had parties like NDU; Zupo under a puppet called Chief Jeremiah Chirau; Zane Mewing of Reverend Ndabaningi Sithole; the Republican Front of racist Ian Douglas Smith; and the UANC of former Zimbabwe-Rhodesia prime minister Emeritus Bishop Abel Tendekayi Muzorewa.

As recently as the 1990s there was Edgar Tekere’s ZUM which zoomed into oblivion and stand-up comedians like Egypt Dzinemunhenzva and other contenders from the red dusty streets of Glen View.

PF Zapu under the leadership of Father Zimbabwe, the late Vice-President Joshua Nkomo, differed from all these parties because it shared the same ideological values with Zanu-PF and was also in the trenches fighting one common enemy to liberate Zimbabwe. That is why it formed a unity government with Zanu PF 22 years ago, which is still intact, and will never collapse never mind what prophets of doom say.

The lucky parties to taste power in Government were the MDC-T and MDC through a technicality — courtesy of the GPA.

These parties were born out of hatred by imperialists angered by the land reform programme. The neo-colonialists are still pursuing that agenda in the futile belief that its surrogates in Government will seize power from within.

This is the year we should defeat imperialist forces by consolidating the gains of independence. Let those calling for change undergo a "Damascus moment" and realise that they have been used to feather the nests of our enemies. Let’s rally behind His Excellency to safeguard our heritage and legacy.

Campion wekwaMereki.
