Godfrey Tsenengamu who leads the newly-formed Economic Emancipation in Zimbabwe (FEEZ) has said ZANU PF leaders used party youths for t-shirts, caps, bandanas, and a promise to lead which never came.
Tsenengamu was speaking during a press conference in Harare Friday, where he launched the party’s manifesto which focuses more on youth empowerment. Tsenengamu said:
Some of us did not get this full opportunity to lead without interference. We were used and abused by our elders in our political parties to further and protect their interests and agendas and we were promised that we will lead tomorrow, so I want to tell you that your time as young people is now.
We were given promises which were never fulfilled, all we got were t-shirts, bandanas, caps, and a promise to a future that never came, so I am challenging you today that you must be firm.
You are going to see ZANU PF cars flooding your ghettos and your rural areas when they could not even afford to give you a single mask but they will make sure that they bring 5 million t-shirts, caps, zambias, scarves and bandanas so that each and everyone of you gets a t-shirts and so you can go and vote for them, this is how sad our situation is.
Tsenengamu was fired from ZANU PF last year after he took part in accusing senior party officials like Obert Mpofu of running corruption cartels.
