Zanu PF Bulawayo Province has accepted defeat and implored the nation at large to embrace results released by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission for the country to move forward.

After handing over a donation of wheelchairs and medical supplies to Nketa Clinic in Bulawayo today, the Provincial Secretary for Administration Elifas Mashaba said Zanu PF Bulawayo Province has accepted defeat with humility and appealed to everyone nationwide to endorse and congratulate winners so that Zimbabwe moves forward.

“Firstly we want to congratulate our President-elect Mnangagwa for garnering the majority vote and we have no doubt that he is going to deliver. As Bulawayo we are happy with the results. We have accepted that we have been defeated and we want to encourage others to embrace the results as we have embraced them in Bulawayo. Bulawayo people are peace loving and we see no reason in squabbling over things which are obvious. The country needs to move on, thus we need to remain peaceful,” he said.

Despite losing the Nketa-Mganwini constituency, Cde Mashaba said this will not stop him from spearheading development in the area as he is guided by the vision of the President-elect to transform the nation.

Cde Mashaba handed over the final batch of five wheel chairs and medical supplies worth $12 000 to Nketa Clinic.

After receiving the donation on behalf of Nketa community, the Assistant Director for Bulawayo Health Services Dr Khulamuzi Nyathi said the donated medical supplies will be availed to the public without any charges.

“These donated drugs won’t be paid for, but will be accessed for free by the public. I wish to thank our community leaders for this noble initiative and we are sure other leaders across the country will see this and emulate it in their respective areas,” he said.

The post election situation in Bulawayo has remained peaceful, which is a sign that everyone is patiently waiting for the nation to move forward.
