Former Vice President Kembo Mohadi, who is ZANU PF’s second secretary, on Sunday held a meeting with chiefs, headmen and village heads in Gokwe South District where he told them to actively support ZANU PF.
The event was attended by several ZANU PF legislators in Gokwe but Gokwe-Kana MP, Owen “Mudha” Ncube was absent and ZANU PF Midlands chairman Larry Mavhima arrived late.
Addressing the traditional leaders, Mohadi, who resigned last year after his alleged illicit sexual relationships with married subordinates were exposed, said:
Please we are asking you our chiefs, headmen and village heads to develop your organisation (ZANU PF). ZANU PF is your party, did you know that?
Know it from today that ZANU PF is your party. We want to fight this war against the West-fronted opposition.
ZANU PF liberated this country. Did you know that this party is yours? We want you to increase the number of people to vote for ZANU PF.
Did you hear we want five million votes next year? We want them to vote for ZANU PF and through you, we know we will achieve that.
We want every village head to give us people we will check according to your register … If we are organised, we will rule until the donkeys have horns.
Some opposition said we had done a coup and that we are a military government, but we don’t care.
The previous day, Mohadi had addressed chiefs, village heads and headmen in Gokwe North.
