The ZANU PF women’s affairs provincial chairperson for Midlands Tsitsi Zhou says President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s family is the most persecuted in the country by western countries.
Zhou made the remarks following the recent sanctioning of Mnangagwa’s son Emmerson Mnangagwa Jnr.
On 12 December 2022, the United States of America Treasury Department sanctioned Emmerson Jnr for his alleged involvement with controversial businessman Kudakwashe Tagwirei and his company Sakunda Holdings.
Addressing a ZANU PF women’s league rally in Kwekwe recently, Zhou said Emmerson was being punished for working for the party. Zhou said:
The President’s family is the most persecuted in the country. They (western countries) are working hard to derail his programme.
They have sanctioned Emmerson Jnr because he decided to work for ZANU PF in Midlands.
They are now punishing him because he decided to work for the party, remember he was recently co-opted in the province.
As a party, we stand by the President and His family. And we are going to vote for him.
They are the ones who have united ZANU PF and shown that he can take us to Canaan.
Zhou recently said the national Constitution should be amended to remove the two-term presidential limit to allow Mnangagwa to run for a third term. | NewZimbabwe.com
