"Violence Is Not Developmental," - VP Chiwenga

Vice President Constantino Chiwenga Friday condemned violence saying it is not developmental. He made the remarks while addressing ZANU PF supporters in Bulawayo

The former army boss speaks amid criticism for his earlier remarks which preceded the murder of Mboneli Ncube, a Citizens’ Coalition for Change (CCC) party supporter who was stabbed at a CCC rally in Kwekwe on Sunday.

Chiwenga had likened the opposition CCC to lice that will be crushed when the time is ripe, remarks that were viewed by civil society organisations and opposition parties as inciting violence. Some defended him saying it was figurative speech.

Addressing ZANU PF supporters in Bulawayo’s Old Pumula suburb, Chiwenga preached peace. He said:

We also want the election process to be defined by peace. We don’t want any violence. We condemn it and give it the utmost contempt it deserves. Violence is not developmental.

Let us remind each other, including those in opposition that being in opposition today is not permanent. So we remain as brothers and sisters of one Zimbabwe. An election is certainly not a justification for any form of violence.

In the past, Zimbabwe recorded an increase in cases of both intra-party and inter-party violence shortly before, during and after elections.

The lastest rise in political violence, therefore, causes great concern amongst observers considering that the Southern Africa country is gearing for the 26 March by-elections and 2023 harmonised elections.

The accent is very funny . I laugh my eyes out of my skull every time I hear his speeches. Though they are always contradictory. He should quit politics and try acting. I've seen a movie with a character of a warlord with that accent . "Shakiti for de Jenarari" he says to his harem

But I say it's too early to believe chiwenga for his response of violence , remember when they took power from Mugabe they preached peace and tranquility but it was a political joke

I WANT TO CONGRATULATE VICE PRESIDENT CONSTANTINO GUVHEYA CHIWENGA FOR REALISING THAT HE MADE A MISTAKE BY ANNOUNCING THAT ZANU PF SHALL CRUSH ÇCC LIKE MICE.

VERY FEW MEN WILL HAVE THE GUTS TO SUMMERSAULT AND CORRECT HIMSELF OR THEMSELVES.

Baba...munozombo dhomokawo imi. Bush Lawyer soo, nxi. The family of Mboweni deserves compensation for what happened to them. They need an apology, hell , an apology won't even work coz the damage has already been done. Be serious Bush Lawyer, don't congratulate this fool. They have been killing since the dawn of time... there is no need to remind you of August....
It is a fact these guys will continue killing... don't be naive and insensitive
