President Emmerson Mnangagwa has been commended for his shift towards the economic emancipation of the citizenry as this is in fulfillment of the goals of the liberation struggle.

This came out during a Zanu PF rally held at Phelandaba Stadium in Gwanda today.

Reacting to President Mnangagwa’s address to thousands of Zanu PF supporters at Phelandaba Stadium today, Vice President Kembo Mohadi said while the objective of the liberation struggle was to usher political and economic freedom, the majority of Zimbabweans have remained poor.

Vice President Mohadi thanked President Mnangagwa for his focus on the economy through the ‘Zimbabwe is open for business’ mantra saying the country is now in good hands.

“We are now into that fight to bring about economic emancipation. We have gotten what we wanted politically now we want economic freedom,” he said.

Speaking at the same occasion, Vice President Retired General Constantino Chiwenga who unveiled winning and losing candidates of the primary elections to the President urged everyone to work together to ensure a resounding victory for Zanu PF in the 2018 election.

“We are all winner, let us work as one. Let us ensure that we win the elections for Zanu PF,” he said.

The President’s message which was anchored on economic transformation and improvement of the people’s standards of living will help Matabeleland South maintain its winning streak, said Zanu PF provincial chairman Cde Rabelani Choene.

The rally also saw President Mnangagwa exonerating Matabeleland South from the poising saga which occurred in Gwanda last year, with the provincial leadership also re-affirming their loyalty and allegiance to their leaders.

Senior government and party officials, war veterans and traditional leaders were among the multitudes who attended the rally.
