Members of the ZANU PF Womenâ€™s League have condemned utterances made by Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai and the planned demonstrations by the MDC-T youths saying Zimbabweâ€™s leaders are elected through a democratic process and not through violent means.
The recent statements made by Prime Minister Tsvangirai during an interview in Davos, Switzerland and the subsequent meeting held by the MDC-T youths where they endorsed the need to employ violence as a way of getting into power have drawn widespread condemnation.Â
Secretary for the ZANU PF Womenâ€™s League, Cde Oppah Muchinguri said remarks made by the premier insinuating that there is need to employ violence in Zimbabwe are reckless and are bound to derail progress achieved by the inclusive government.
Secretary for Information and Publicity in the ZANU PF Womenâ€™s League, Cde Monica Mutsvangwa said the planned demonstrations by the MDC-T youths are clearly a sign of people who do not know the sacrifices made by sons and daughters of this country to achieve freedom.
She urged young people to desist from being used to further other peopleâ€™s political ambitions.
National Political Commissar for the ZANU PF Womenâ€™s League, Cde Olivia Muchena noted that the utterances made by Mr. Tsvangirai are not expected from someone who purports to have the peopleâ€™s interests at heart.Â
The Womenâ€™s League national executive members concurred that the MDC-T leader should know where to draw the line when issuing out statements, especially since he holds a respectable position in the Inclusive Government.
