Mnangagwa Urges Youths To Shun Drugs, Delinquency

Mnangagwa Urges Youths To Shun Drugs, Delinquency

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has exhorted children to be disciplined, hardworking, respectful and also shun drugs and unbecoming behaviour if they are to be competitive in a globalised world.

He was speaking on Saturday in an interactive session with children drawn from Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia during the World Children’s Day forum that was held in Kazungula, Botswana.

The President noted that while children have their expectations, their governments also expect good behaviour from them. He said:

Today’s interactive meeting informs us, leaders, what you think we should do for you. But you should also apply your minds to what you think we as your leaders should do for you, for us to help. We want discipline.

Respect your parents, respect your teachers, lecturers and professors. Abstain from drugs and wayward living, that is what we would want you to be.

We feel better that you the young, who are going to be leaders of these countries — these communities, are discussing these issues.

Zimbabwe’s young people were represented by Nkosilathi Nyathi, a UNICEF climate change activist from Victoria Falls who passionately pleaded with the regional leaders to give children space to express themselves.

President Mnangagwa paid tribute to Botswana President Mokgweetsi Masisi for bringing the four countries together to discuss the issues.

Mnangagwa joined his Botswana counterpart Masisi, Namibian President Hage Geingob and Zambian President Hakainde Hichilema at the quadripoint where Zimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana and Zambia meet.

This year’s annual World Children’s Day was held under the theme, “Reimagining the Future.” 

The Kazungula Bridge was lit in blue, symbolising that children have no limitations to their hopes and aspirations.

AND I WAS THE BAD GUY? EVERYTHING THAT IS HAPPENING IS A RESULT OF OUR PAST MISTAKES.

WE HAVE TO ACCEPT THE REALITY WE HAVE FAILED THESE INNOCENT PEOPLE OF ZIMBABWE THEY DESERVE BETTER LEADERSHIP. I APOLOGIZE TO EVERY LIVING ZIMBABWEAN, PLEASE FORGIVE ME, I FAILED YOU AS A LEADER, I ABUSED MY ROLE AS A LEADER.

I BETRAYED THE FAITH YOU HAD IN ME, I SHOULD HAVE LET GO WHEN YOU DECIDED YOU WANTED CHANGE. I SHOULD HAVE MADE YOU A MAJOR PRIORITY. IT WAS MY RESPONSIBILITY AS A LEADER. PLEASE FORGIVE ME..

LET GO OF YOUR DIFFERENCES AND HATRED, OPEN YOUR EYES EVERYTHING THAT IS HAPPENING IS AS A RESULT OF YOUR LACK OF UNITY. A BRIGHTER ZIMBABWE IS POSSIBLE, ONLY IF YOU HAVE A UNITY OF PURPOSE, ONLY THEN ARE YOU CAPABLE OF ACHIEVING A BRIGHTER AND PROSPEROUS ZIMBABWE.

ITS TIME FOR A CHANGE. CHANGE IS POSSIBLE IT'S NEAR. TOGETHER YOU CAN ACHIEVE IT.

GOD BLESS YOU AND GOD BLESS ZIMBABWE!!!

Busy crushing the parents' hopes. Ko future yevana vedu yozovei? Hakuna chembwa tenzi vararira mangai.
Dai vakuru vedu vachinyatsa kumbosiya mamotor cade uko vopinda munharaunda dzinogara vanhu without accompanying pomp and fair vachinyatsa kumboona kuti vari kurarama sei zvakare vari kunzwei chaizvo. Zvimwe vairerutsa moyo. Counselor chaiye not to talk of MP haatozivi nharaunda yaakamirira nemazvo. Unotoshaya kuziva kuti zviri kumbofamba sei chaizvo.
The future of the majority of Zimbabwean children looks bleak kutaura pafeya chaipo. Yet children of the "political elites" have lives better than those of hard-working parents of their age mates.
ZANUPf ivai nemoyo imi.
