We Used Guns To Bring Independence, Use Your Vote To Safeguard It - Mnangagwa

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said the youths of his generation used the gun to liberate Zimbabwe from British rule but the contemporary youths need to use their vote to safeguard that independence. 

He made the remarks while addressing youth and delegates who were attending the Robert Mugabe National Youth Day celebrations held at Robert Mugabe Square, in Harare on Monday.

He reiterated the ruling ZANU PF’s claims that the opposition, “a puppet of the West” intended to reverse the gains made since the attainment of independence hence the need to vote the ruling party “which has the nation’s interests at heart”.

Mnangagwa’s remarks spell a departure from the party’s position, however, in the sense that he believes that votes can influence the political trajectory of the Southern African country.

ZANU PF officials, living and the departed, including the late former President Robert Mugabe, used to say votes will not guarantee victory.

Mugabe is on record openly declaring with regards to elections that “the gun is mightier than the pen”.

In 2008, the late former Prime Minister, Morgan Tsvangirai defeated ZANU PFcandidate, Mugabe, but could not get to the State House as the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) claimed that he had not attained the required 50 plus 1 per cent of the votes cast.

A rerun was held during which scores of opposition MDC members were assaulted and or killed by ZANU PF youths, War Veterans and members of the security sector, mainly the army.

However, by Mugabe’s own accidental admission which is on record, Tsvangirai probably won the first round of the 2008 presidential elections with 73%. ZEC took 5 weeks to announce the official result, now down to 47.9% for Tsvangirai.

There have been reports that the ruling ZANU PF connives with ZEC and other state departments to manipulate the electoral process to prevent the transfer of power to the opposition.

Zimbabwe is gearing towards March 26 by-elections and 2023 harmonised elections with political analysts doubtful that the ruling party will be prepared to handover power in the event that it loses the elections.

Looks like we need to use guns again to regain our independence. Zanu has changed the election standards for our country, instead of ballots, one needs guns to win an election. Judges are clearly afraid of guns more than they are afraid of accountability to the constitution

@Ngorima Mushava 👇🏿👇🏿👇🏿 you are foolish. Hasn't ED been begging whites to come back to Zimbabwe over the past 4 years, hasn't he given the Chinese impunity to do whatever they want in our country. Clearly the whole country knows who is the sellout. ED and Zanu PF are not patriots

Mdara nhema idzi takanguri tadziwha,sorry but I'm definitely not voting for Zanu Pf. Out with the old and in with the new. You claim that the povo will start enjoying the fruits of independence in 2030, exactly 50 years after independence. How much wealth have you amassed for all these imi nema cronies enyu?? To be honest,there's nothing to defend apa instead start preparing kunorima kumusha coz vapfana vechidiki vauya hot hot. CCC ☝️

What gains? Gains for him, his family and a few of his buddies. Our parents (some war veterans, war detainees, collaborators ...) are wallowing in poverty and regret ever joining the armed struggle. Ukanzwa mawar vets akuti Smith aiwa nani and ana sekuru vachena all bosy hairs vakuti chihurumende ichi hachiiti, know that it is a failed government of self-serving indviduals. Zimbabweans shall be free from these Black_Smiths.
KUKAKA kwamaita kuti vanhu vaite kwaita kuti vasavharike nyore. The only way out is by kutovaponda/kusvasvanga as you say otherwise noooo. No more to this suffering. The problem is you don't admit that chaorera mumaoko enyu. Hapana magains apa unless you mean chaita gain honye nekunhuwa because chaora.

Yes it's very obvious. Assuming that a large number of people register to vote and actually turn out to vote to a point that ZEC becomes overwhelmed and fails to rig the elections, ZANU PF won't concede to defeat. It's as certain as the fact that the sun will rise tomorrow.
