PRESIDENT Mugabe is the only rightful leader to be nominated ahead of the ruling party’s elective congress after steering Zanu-PF to crushing victory in last year’s harmonised elections, a Zanu-PF legislator has said.
Zanu-PF is set to hold its elective Congress in December.
Gokwe Nembudziya National Assembly member, Cde Justice Mayor Wadyajena, said President Mugabe was the only person who could take the revolutionary party and the country forward.
He made the remarks while addressing members of his constituency in Ward 15 at his victory celebrations.
“Now we are looking forward to the Congress scheduled for December,” he said.
“We should make wise decisions just like we did last year.
“If you are sleeping and you start to dream of a different leader who is not President Mugabe, you should wake up from that nightmare.
“But if you continue to have President Mugabe in your dreams, then you should never wake up from your sleep because he is the only leader for Zimbabwe.
“So, for Congress, there is no one who will take that position except President Robert Mugabe.”
Cde Wadyajena called for political unity among the people which he said was good for the country’s development.
“The 2013 elections are now over and we voted wisely,” he said.
“Now we should take this opportunity to build the party, Zanu-PF, in preparation for the 2018 national elections.
“No one belongs to any individual, but we all now belong to one party which is led by the President Cde Mugabe and it is only through working together that our country will prosper.”
Cde Wadyajena said it was Zanu-PF that had remained intact despite the massive political fighting in the country.
He donated stationery and furniture worth thousands of dollars to Kadzidirire Primary School in fulfilment of promises he made before last year’s elections.
“This is just the beginning of the development programmes planned by Government in the Zim-Asset economic blueprint,” he said.
Cde Wadyajena urged the people to work collectively with Government and support its economic programmes which are expected to direct the country towards development.
