Zanu-PF National Chairman, Ambassador Simon Khaya Moyo has urged Zimbabwean youths to remember the liberation history of the country and preserve the legacy of the revolutionary fathers.
Speaking at the official relaunch of a locally written book , entitled â€˜The Chimurenga Protocolâ€™, Ambassador Moyo paid tribute to its author Dr Nyaradzo Mutizira saying the book should be read by all youths for them to understand the countryâ€™sÂ history.
â€œThe book is an essential reading for the youth of this great nation. The youth must remember the liberation history of this great country and they must act to preserve itâ€™s profound legacy bestowed on them by H.E. President Robert Gabriel Mugabe and our revolutionary party, Zanu-PF,â€ said Ambassador Moyo.
The bookâ€™s author, Dr Nyaradzo Mutizira, said there is need to tell the story of Zimbabweâ€™s land reform programme from the indigenous peopleâ€™s perspective after the demonization of the initiative by the Western media and those aligned to it.
Dr Mutizira said: â€œI realised that there are a lot of misconceptions created by the Western media. So I have decided to tell the story from the indigenous peopleâ€™s perspectives.â€
The book articulates the story of Zimbabweâ€™s land tenure from colonialism to the present day while raising fundamental issues of the realities of the land redistribution programme launched to give back the countryâ€™s land to a majority of indigenous black Zimbabweans.
