Mnangagwa rally ends in mayhem

President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s rally was yesterday marred by violence after ruling party youths and soldiers tried to stop people from streaming out of the venue before the Zanu PF leader finished his address.

Soldiers and national service youths, known as “Green Bombers”, had a torrid time trying to control the restless crowd at Bindura’s Chipadze Stadium as scores of people started leaving when Mnangagwa was midway through his speech.

Some of the youths armed with logs tried to stop the people but were eventually overpowered.

Several people were reportedly injured in the melee as they fled the marauding youths and soldiers.

Videos of Border Gezi youths and armed soldiers trying in vain to chase down fleeing masses back to the venue as Mnangagwa addressed the crowd have since gone viral.

Several people were beaten up as they ran away from the rally.

On Friday, the Zanu PF leadership was left seething with anger after restless supporters walked out on Mnangagwa at a rally in Mapfungautsi Primary School in Gokwe South.

Zanu PF candidate for Gokwe-Mapfungautsi and politburo member, Victor Matemadanda, sought to blame truck drivers competing to beat passenger targets for the walkout on Mnangagwa.

“As the President was addressing the people, some truck drivers started to spread messages that they were leaving the rally,” the war veterans leader was quoted as having said in a state-owned daily yesterday.

“Some of these people were coming from faraway places like Chitekete and when they heard that transport was leaving they stood up.”

In his speech, Mnangagwa yesterday made a U-turn on white commercial farmers saying they would not get their farms back.
Mnangagwa said those who wanted their repossessed land must go back to their countries of origin.
 “The new dispensation will not return land to the whites,  no, no!,” he said amid thunderous applause from Zanu PF supporters.

“We have united people through this land. If you want you can get into a ship and go back to your country and parcel land there.”

 Zimbabwe embarked on a chaotic land redistribution programme at the turn of the millennium following growing protests by disgruntled war veterans who claimed white farmers were funding the opposition.

Former president Robert Mugabe presided over the violent seizure of farms owned by white Zimbabweans.

After taking over from Mugabe following a coup in November last year, Mnangagwa had appeared open for the return of the displaced farmers after declaring that all Zimbabweans who needed land would get it.  

Meanwhile, Mnangagwa said Zanu PF was on course to record a massive electoral victory on July 30.

 He promised to reward traditional leaders with more vehicles soon after the elections.

“When we ushered in the new dispensation we summoned all chiefs in Midlands and gave them cars while informing them of the new government,” he said.

“After 30 July when we are in power all the 289 chiefs will have brand new cars.”

He said Vice-President Kembo Mohadi and Zanu PF chairperson Oppah Muchinguri Kashiri were still recovering from the injuries they sustained after an explosion at Bulawayo’s White City Stadium during a Zanu PF rally.

    Am from Krugersdop and am here to let you about how i got help from Mama Thandy last year in march. Me and my husband had alot of misunderstandings and time came when he had to end our relationship for no good reason . He insisted that he needed sometime alone, unknowingly he was to go forever. Ofcos nothing wrong i had done but as for the case of some men, he just ignored me by blocking me everywhere from his life. As any other woman, I’ve struggled to build this man and indeed i’ve invested alot of time and effort for this relationship to last. We have a long story and we’ve come from far something i am not able to lose just like that!! I contacted Mama Thandy from this facebook page and i told her about my issue, indeed i was too stressed and i asked her to check for me anything causing these misunderstandings between us. She agreed to help me, and later she told me about the affairs my man was having with other women. For all along he was a cheat!! But leaving him isn’t the solution because we have two kids already. I asked Mama Thandy to help me to bring this to an end because my marriage means alot to me. Ofcos i had doubts and lost hope expecting nothing to happen since he had spent quite a long time without replying my calls, nor texting me back. Mama Thandy helped me and we got back together like nothing had ever happened before. He came back home shyingly like any other person who had done something wrong, and he spent the whole evening with our son. Later at night he sat me down and he explained everything in a formal apology. The love and care is at it’s highest peak and i wonder what had took me so long to contact this lady for help. Am really grateful and indeed my story is worth sharing such that someone out there can also get a chance to be helped in any way possible. Neither did i believe that there were some spell casters that are really strong like this lady Mama Thandy. Her personal number is +27814476165 Thanks for taking your time to read this lovely testimonial. God bless you.
