Young people have been challenged to be the vanguards of the countryâ€™s future borrowing a leaf from the exemplary life of Head of State and Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, President Robert Mugabe.
The call was made by Zanu-PF National Chairman, Ambassador Simon Khaya Moyo, during a fundraising function for the 21st
February Movement held in the capitalÂ Wednesday night.
Ambassador Khaya Moyo reminded the people who attended the function to remember the significance of the 21st February Movement and challenged them to emulate the virtues and exemplary life led by Cde Mugabe.
He added that the 21st February Movement should not be an occasion for merry making but an opportunity for the youth to reminisce, reflect and introspect on their contribution to the nation, challenging them to safeguard Zimbabweâ€™s revolution.
Ambassador Moyo bemoaned the level of moral decay which he said is slowly eating the nation and castigated those who keep amassing wealth whilst forgetting to empower the youth.
Youth leaders present at the colourful occasion encouraged young people from all over the country to attend the 21st February Movement commemorations to be hosted by Manicaland Province.
The 21st February Movement fundraising dinner was attended by the partyâ€™s leadership, captains of industry and commerce, Russian diplomats, youth representatives and the business community who pledged support for the annual event.
