Cops dance to Zanu PF jingles


ZVISHAVANE – The Zimbabwe Republic Police band entertaining hundreds of people who gathered to witness the launch of the Zvishavane Community Share Ownership Scheme danced lively as they sang Zanu PF jingles by the Mbare Chimurenga Choir.

The police members, under obligation to be apolitical, danced to the controversial songs while waving the Zanu PF fist salute as they belted out a Zanu PF song Tsigirai Bato reZanu PF (Support Zanu PF).

Commissioner-General Augustine Chihuri, who recently had his term at the helm of the police extended, has publicly declared that he is a Zanu PF sympathiser and would resign from his post in the event of a Zanu PF defeat in a democratic election.

The band sang the jingles which praise Zanu PF and President Robert Mugabe encouraging them to remain at the helm of government in the face of a strong challenge from the MDC-T.

Indigenisation minister Saviour Kasukuwere also turned the event into an exclusive Zanu PF function by chanting party slogans as he took to the podium. He went on to denounce partners in the inclusive government whom he accused of being against the empowerment drive.

“Mugabe owns this programme, he brought it to us after years of the country losing its minerals to foreign-owned companies who would come here with cars to loot our minerals,” said Kasukuwere, before chanting party slogans.

Midlands Governor and Resident Minister Jason Machaya also joined the bandwagon started by the police force members and Kasukuwere, chanting slogans at the government function where MDC ministers were conspicuous by their absence.

Mimosa becomes the third mining company after Zimplats and Unki to dole out 10% of its shares and a $10 million purse to the community in compliance with the country’s laws.
