Mnangagwa Warns Chiefs Against Supporting Opposition Parties

Mnangagwa Warns Chiefs Against Supporting Opposition Parties

President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Wednesday warned chiefs against supporting opposition political parties if they want to keep their positions.

Addressing ZANU PF supporters at a campaign rally in St Mary’s, Chitungwiza, Mnangagwa said traditional leaders who support the opposition should pray to their ancestors for guidance. He said:

We liberated the country through war. Some men and women perished. We said we would work with chiefs and when you see a chief supporting the opposition, that chief should do a cleansing ceremony and ask his ancestors why they would have forsaken him.

According to Chapter 15 of the Constitution, chiefs are not allowed to engage in partisan politics. It says, “traditional leaders must not be members of any political party or in any way participate in partisan politics, act in a partisan manner, further the interests of any political party or cause or violate the fundamental rights and freedoms of any person”.

Mnangagwa also warned the electorate that the Central Government will ignore constituencies that vote for the opposition. He said:

If you want the government to listen to your concerns and address them, you will have to send them via channels that we recognise and not through the opposition.

Here is the opportunity to vote for people who submit your concerns to the leaders.

You hear the young boy (Chamisa) saying if I win, he will make this country ungovernable.

Let us make sure he won’t get into government.

He also reiterated that Zimbabwe will remain a unitary State and secessionists will not succeed. He said:

There are some Mthwakazi (members) who say they want Zimbabwe to be divided. They will speak, get old and die.

Zimbabwe will remain a unitary State. No leadership in this world encourages its country to be divided. No one will divide it. If you want to do that you will leave shortly. Walk in the right path. We want peace, we want development.

This country has its owners and it’s led by its owners. It can’t be led by people who get advice from whites.

Enough with promises 1 month ago

Mtwakazi before we talk about anything, we have to do a background check of it all.Why wasting time on non development things,young people want a better future, young people want jobs not some reforms that will cause hatrage among people.About Mtwakazi it's another story for another day, actually for other years to come.
But for now we need change,can't be a graduate yet still find yourself as a money changer, can't be a graduate yet still living under your parents house.
Can't be a graduate while you find your self doing something not inline with your qualifications.
We need change, change for the betterment of the young and old.
We need change,churches given places to build their buildings and industries opened to create jobs.
All we need is not a matter of words only,but action to benefit all,whether connected or not.
The system has to be changed for the benefits of all especially young people, how do expect the young people to make a living with the current system.
You get graduated and yet apply for a job, the recruitments will be 5years experience or more.
Does that mean the recent graduates won't be able to work because of such requirements.

We talk and talk but change is all that we want,something to be done with retirement age so that young people can also get that chance to work.

All we need is change,monthly pension fund it's not enough for the elderly to buy basic commodities,paying $10us or more for transport to get nothing.
All we need is change no matter what political party you belong too,all we need is change.

We tired of hearing X and Y exchanged words,after such then what do the majority benefit.
We tired of X's and Y's on the media spotlights with words exchange but still majority doesn't benefit anything.
We need a better Zimbabwe to benefit all not because you belong to which side,but to benefit all.
People want practical things tangible things not promises only,for so many years you hear the X;K,Y etc coming with promises but at the end of the day,week,month,years nothing tangible you see transpiring.
All we see is they will all be rooming around with big machines,but nothing on the ground that is being achieved.
For so many years promises promises,how about some change for all.
Don't be mislead by the promises,but think about the change we all need.

Very long and emotional but l concur with you. Vanhu VAKAKISWA nenhamo for too long a few gods and their kids vachiita enjoy of the fatness of the land. It is not right.

Change is inevitable.

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK HIS EXCELLENCY PRESIDENT ED MNANGAGWA FOR EDUCATING OUR CHIEFS ON HOW THEY SHOULD CONDUCT THEMSELVES POLITICALLY. THE THEME OF HIS LECTURE TO CHIEFS WAS THAT THEY SHOULD NOT SUPPORT ANY OPPOSITION POLITICAL PARTY.

THE PRESIDENT THREATENED CHIEFS WHO SUPPORTED OPPOSITION POLITICAL PARTIES WITH UNSPECIFIED PUNISHMENT. THIS INFERRED THAT HE WANTED ALL CHIEFS TO SUPPORT THE RULING PARTY, ZANU PF. THIS IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

HIS EXCELLENCY PRESIDENT ED MNANGAGWA IMMEDIATELY CONTRADICTED HIMSELF BY QUOTING, VERBATIM, A SECTION OF THE CONSTITUTION WHICH FORBIDS CHIEFS FROM SUPPORTING ANY POLITICAL PARTY.

MOST CHIEFS ATTEND ZANU PF RALLIES COUNTRYWIDE. I HAVE NEVER HEARD HIS EXCELLENCY PRESIDENT ED MNANGAGWA CAUTIONING THOSE CHIEFS NOT TO ATTEND HIS RALLIES !!!!!

HIS EXCELLENCY PRESIDENT ED MNANGAGWA WENT ON TO WARN THOSE WHO VOTE FOR OPPOSITION PARTIES THAT HIS GOVERNMENT SHALL NOT LISTEN TO THEM WHENEVER THEY BRING FORWARD THEIR DEVELOPMENTAL PROGRAMMES.

HIS EXCELLENCY PRESIDENT ED MNANGAGWA'S COMMENTS ON CHIEFS WHO SUPPORT OPPOSITION POLITICAL PARTIES AND THE ELECTORATE WHO VOTE FOR THE OPPOSITION POLITICAL PARTIES WERE NOT IN SYNCH WITH THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT. THE PRESIDENT'S TONGUE SLIPPED.

THEN THERE WERE COMMENTS HE ARTICULATED ON UMTWAKHAZI. I SUPPORT HIM UNRESERVEDLY. CITIZENS MUST ABIDE BY THE BORDERS WHICH WERE DRAWN BY THE COLONIALISTS. THEY MUST NOT SEEK TO DRAW OTHER NEW BOUNDARIES WHICH BRING ABOUT STRIVES IN OUR BELOVED ZIMBABWE.

[ ONE DAY TO GO:::DO NOT VOTE FOR THE REPRESSIVE ZANU PF. DO NOT VOTE FOR THE SELLOUT ADVOCATE DOUGLAS TAGARASEYI MWONZORA. VOTE FOR CCC FOR REAL CHANGE ].

YOURS SINCERELY

LIKEWISE I ALWAYS SAY, ZANU-PF HAS CAPTURED ALL INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE AND INSTITUTIONS IN THE COUNTRY.CHIEFS WERE CAPTURED LONG TIME AGO,SINCE MY TIME AS I WAS THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE MEMBER.

THE CONSTITUTION OF THIS LAND IS AGAINST TRADITIONAL LEADERS BEING PARTISAN.IN NO WAY THEY SHOULD ATTEND RALLIES OF A CERTAIN POLITICAL PARTY BUT ALAS YOU WILL FIND CHIEFS LIKE THE HONOURABLE CHARUMBIRA OPENLY SUPPORTING AND CAMPAIGNING FOR ZANU-PF---THUS VIOLATING THE CONSTITUTION.

AS OF THE STANCE TAKEN BY THE LISTENING PRESIDENT H.E ED, AGAINST MTHWAKAZI SECESSIONISTS,AM FULLY IN AGREEMENT WITH HIM.HE SHOULD CRUSH AND SILENCE THEM FOREVER..

THE COUNTRY HAS OWNERS AND IS BEING LED BY THE OWNERS,WE SHOULD NEVER MAKE MISTAKE OF GIVING OUR VOTE TO THE NEW COMERS,WE MIGHT END UP HAVING A DIVIDED COUNTRY.ON THIS ONE I FULLY ADVISE CHAMISA NOT BE FOUND GUARD DOWN BY THOSE NOT OWNERS OF ZIM WHO ARE BENT ON DIVIDING AND DESTROYING OUR GOD-GIVEN INHERITANCE.

CHAMISA SHOULD ALSO PREACH AGAINST SECESSION IF HE WANT TO GET BACKING FROM THE HARDCORE ZIMBABWEANS.

WITH ALL SAID AND DONE,IF A CONSTITUENCY REJECT A ZANU-PF CANDIDATE,THE GOVERNMENT MUST NEVER SABOTAGE SUCH CONSTITUENCY.

[ TWO DAYS TO GO:: DO NOT VOTE ZANU PF. DO NOT VOTE MWONZORA. VOTE CCC FOR REAL CHANGE ].

YOURS TRULY

@Tkt and @Goldie and many others

For the past week or so I've steadily noticed that there seems to be a faction that is very much against the Bush Lawyer for some unknown reason. Can you please all stop it?

I find it embarrassing that most of you would stoop so low as to verbally assault, mimick him incorrectly and dare insult a person who freely gives analysis based on the understanding of the law. As far as I'm concerned, not one of you who attack the Bush Lawyer have said anything logical since the day this platform was created. The saddest thing is that while you guys may argue that he is too old to be using the platform, I find it very disgusting that you actually find the time to insult an old man simply because you don't like what he said.
He mainly gives off analysis and stays out of your way yet you feel entitled to insult him. I feel so disappointed knowing that we have grown men and women who act irrationally when something they don't like is said.

Please... if anyone doesn't like The Bush Lawyer's analysis just type @Mark then tell me directly what don't you like about it because it's now becoming out of hand. Insult me personally and tell me what you hate about The Bush Lawyer, leave the old man alone

The only thing embarrassing is you John. Instead of speaking up against people clearly cyber bullying, you decide to keep quiet about it like the **** you are.
I'm willing to look **** on a free platform if I know what I'm doing is right coz I actually have the balls to stand up when everyone is sitting like the sheep they are
