Chiwenga warns Chamisa against inciting violence

VICE-PRESIDENT Constantino Chiwenga yesterday warned MDC Alliance president Nelson Chamisa against inciting violence by claiming that he had the capacity to disrupt next week’s watershed polls.

BY KUDZAI MUCHENJEKWA

Chiwenga was addressing a rally at Kingsdale, Norton to drum up support for Zanu PF parliamentary candidate Christopher Mutsvangwa, who is also the special advisor to President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

“Some people are in a rush and panicking, they are saying I can stop the elections, if I tell people in Bulawayo and Harare they will not vote, in which capacity are you saying this things?” Chiwenga said.

“The issue of Zec does not involve the government; the executive has nothing to do with this. No one in this country in their right sense can incite violence; we said we don’t want violence.”

The MDC Alliance has threatened to picket at the Zec offices countrywide this Wednesday if the commission fails to accede to its demands to check the security of the ballot paper and monitor its security and movement during the election period.

Chamisa has accused Zec and Zanu PF of colluding to rig the elections on behalf of Mnangagwa.

Chiwenga said Norton would soon be given municipal status and its hospital would be upgraded by the Zanu PF government.

Speaking at the same rally, Mutsvangwa said the people of Norton voted for independent candidate Temba Mliswa in the previous by-election just to spite former President Robert Mugabe’s administration and should now rally behind the current administration led by Mnangagwa.

  1. The campaigning charisma of ED and Chiwenga put together does not even come a quarter close to Chamisa’s, these tired & boring old men should just rest head to the retirement home for good

      What charisma? Iko kungovukura kuti maElection haaitwe ndiyo charisma? Kungo vukura kuti marori nezvikepe zvichauya nemari ndiyo charisma? Charmed by lies indeed but keep BP tablets in stock because by Friday or Saturday next week you will be very sick.

      What charm when you and Mugabe destroyed the country by being greed for power? Joshua Nkomo or ED never called for sanctions which closed one of the largest employer and exporter of meat to the EU, the Cold Storage Commission, but you did.

  2. @Eagle Eye. This is the best comment of the day. Short at to the point, those doddering old codgers must rest, they have nothing to offer.I can’t listen a minute to their drivel.Pathetic. Now wonder why forced people stream away from their rallies.

  3. IF ZANU PF HAS NO FEAR OF LOSING,WHY CAN’T THEY ALSO ASK ZEC TO KINDLY BE TRANSPARENT TO ALL PARTICIPATING PARTIES THAN THEY THE ZANU PF BE SPEAKING ON BEHALF OF ZEC.
    IF SURELY ZEC IS AN INDEPEDENT SECTOR THEN ZANU PF SHOULD NEVER SAY A WORD ON BEHALF OF ZEC BUT RATHER PUSH ZEC FOR CREDIBLE,FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS.

    WE AS ZIMBABWEANS ARE SURELY TIRED OF THIS MISGOVERNING OF OUR NATION AND ITS RESOURCES

  7. Lack of tolerance yemachinja ndoiri kuita kuti ndisasapote MDC. machinja mafanana chose neZANU yaMUgabe u think everyone who does not support MDC haana kukwana. Imi ndimi musina kukwana coz u follow blindly. Nyngwe manyepo munotsigira as long as zvataurwa naChamisa. U are setting a bad precedence by attacking ZEC nesuperstitions. Chamisa has dictarial tendencies. Honai ari kuchemera hupresident chete hapana paanotaura nezveballot raMP kana councillor coz haanei nazvo. What type of leader is he????
