CCC leader Nelson Chamisa pledged to honour the late nationalist and former ZANU and ZANU Ndonga leader, Ndabaningi Sithole through pushing development in Manicaland Province.
Chamisa was addressing his supporters at Kondo Business Centre in Chipinge over the weekend.
He said he will uphold Sithole’s legacy through championing development. Said Chamisa:
We are saying if you elect Mukomana (Chamisa) Zimbabwe will be number one in its wealth, and number one in restoring the legacy of Ndabaningi Sithole.
In August this year, President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s administration accorded Sithole national hero status posthumously together with James Chikerema.
Chamisa said the only tribute Mnangagwa can give Sithole is to respect one man one vote which he said Sithole fought for. He said:
Even if they decide to bury him at the hero’s acre, the only tribute they can give him is to respect one man one vote. That is what he fought for.
The only tribute they should give to Chipinge is to respect the development that Sithole fought for.
Sithole was the founding leader of ZANU before independence but he was ousted by his colleagues who replaced him with Robert Mugabe in 1975 through the Mgagao declaration.
He then formed ZANU Ndonga and was a Member of Parliament for Chipinge from 1995 to 2000. | NewZimbabwe.com
