Zimbabweans today celebrated the 30th Unity Day commemorations with people in Hwange calling for the support of the country’s new government led By President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
The Unity Accord was signed by the former President Robert Mugabe and the late Vice President Dr Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo on the 22nd of December in 1987.
As the nation marks unity day, people in Hwange have called for the support of the country`s new government led by President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
The general feeling is that the support for the new government will serve as evidence that Zimbabweans are a peace loving people whose focus is social and economic development.
Others, however, feel the day should be a time to bury differences and heed President Mnangagwa’s call to let bygones be bygones.
Signed on the 22nd of December in 1987 by Zanu PF and PF Zapu, the Unity Day ushered in political and social stability which many feel should be used to lure tourists and investors into the country.
In the Midlands, Zanu PF members have been urged to stop factional fights and focus on uniting every one ahead of the 2018 harmonised elections.
Midlands Minister of State Cde Owen Ncube has lamented the continued in fights within the party and called on the party members to put all their effort towards rebuilding the party structures which will ensure a resounding victory for Zanu PF.
Cde Ncube said priority should be put towards the betterment of the country and not jostling for party positions as this creates unnecessary divisions within the party.
He was addressing Shurugwi South villagers at Rusununguko Secondary School.
On a separate note, Cde Ncube commended the people of Shurugwi for initiating a scholarship programme to cater for disadvantaged but intellectually gifted school children.
He donated books to all primary schools in the constituency, knapsacks to chiefs, rain coats and umbrellas to headman and other assortment of goods valued at US$15 000.
