Chiefs have commended the able leadership of President Robert Mugabe who has navigated the stormy political and economic waters of this country since independence.

In an interview with ZBC News on the sidelines of President Mugabe’s 93rd birthday bash in the heart of the sacred hills of Matopos which are known as Chilala Badzimu, Chiefs said the nation is happy that the President has done a lot for the people of this country.

They spoke of the education policy that has benefited many youths as well as adults through the informal education system.

The Chiefs were also grateful for the Land Reform Programme, the very foundation of the war of liberation as well as other empowerment programmes.

Also to congratulate the President was an elder nationalist Cde Naison Khutshwekhaya Ndlovu who said 93 years is a blessing from God.

Meanwhile, a number of institutions and individuals showered the President with gifts where a renowned Brahman breeder in Matopo Mr Reuben Pilossof gave the President two bulls.

The colourful event held at Matopos Junior Primary School will linger in the minds of many for years to come as people had an opportunity to be addressed by the national and Pan African icon President Robert Mugabe.
