The ruling Zanu PF party says MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa is under pressure for relevance in the face of mass exodus of key members from his party who have defected the revolutionary movement.
Responding to Chamisa’s recent Agenda 2021 address, Zanu PF national spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo said the party shall continue to welcome all those who have elected to return back.
“ZANU PF is quite alive however, that Mr Chamisa is under pressure to seek relevance in the face of mass exodus of key members from his party who have defected to the Revolutionary Party. This is not our problem, but his, and we shall continue to welcome all those who have elected to return back to ZANU PF, the People’s Party.
“That should not be equated to forming a one party state. Zimbabwe remains a multiparty democracy and ZANU PF cherishes that. However, we don’t offer political consultancy to collapsing parties. As such, those tired of civil political engagement must stop venting out their frustration through experimenting with the country’s hard won Freedom, Peace and Unity,” said Moyo.
Chamisa’s address was viewed as veiled threats to unseat the Government to which Moyo said Zanu PF had capacity to thwart but will leave the matter with law enforcement agents.
“The Revolutionary Party ZANU PF has noted with contempt, the MDC A veiled threats to unseat a constitutionally elected Government following pronouncements by Mr Nelson Chamisa during his hollow address of 09 March 2021, dubbed , Agenda 2021.
“In his long monologue, Mr. Chamisa did not only fail to demonstrate leadership but failed to instil hope in his fractured party, instead, rumbling about seeking to establish pockets of resistance across the country similar to the ill fated 31 July 2020 attempted violent demonstrations, whose sole attempt was to destabilise the country.
“While, ZANU PF has the capacity to thwart such machinations, as a law abiding organisation, we rest the matter with the law enforcement agencies.
“The people of Zimbabwe have had enough of this childish rambling from a party clearly running short of oxygen. ZANU PF and its leadership have no agenda whatsoever to decimate any opposition political party.” said Moyo
