PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa has said his administration is ready to counter Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) violence threats reminding his opponents that Zimbabwe is a military state.
Speaking to Zanu-pf youths in Harare Monday, Mnangagwa slammed utterances made by the CCC leader that his party is geared for violence in the event of losing elections.
He said he got so troubled when he heard Chamisa saying that if he becomes president of this country, in five days whites will be back reiterating that the country’s destiny is in the hands of its citizens.
“Zimbabwe will be developed by its citizens just like any other nation.
“Now Chamisa wants development to come from the West. Shame on you. Ndakashaya kuti zvino nhai veduwe kana mai vacho vanoti ndakaberekei. Chamisa said that there will be violence if he loses elections next year, we are prepared
“Although we come from different provinces, let us forever be mindful that we are a diverse people but one nation. There is no room for hate speech or divisive language. Zimbabwe is a military state. Those who dream of dividing this country ngavamuke vabike doro nekuti mudzimu yavarasha,” he said.
“On your part I urge you to reject those who want to make our country puppets of other jurisdictions and guard the independence of our great country while the young people of yesteryear used the gun to bring about independence and sovereignty, today you only must use your vote to defend our great county.”
