Zanu PF youth say they are going ahead with a planned million-man-march to show solidarity with 92-year-old President Robert Mugabe, scheduled for Africa Day.

The party’s Youth League says this march is designed to show the world that Mr. Mugabe enjoys a lot of support at home though his party appears to be riddled with factionalism.

The million-man-march is said to be the brain-child of one of the factions allegedly led by First Lady, Grace Mugabe, calling itself Generation 40 or G40. This group allegedly wants her to succeed President Mugabe. She has already denied these allegations.

The other faction said to be led by Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa, who is also allegedly habouring presidential ambitions and backed by war veterans, is boycotting the million-man-march.

But will this march benefit zimbabwe? Studio 7 posed this question to Zanu PF Youth League member, Tongai Kasukuwere, and MDC-T youth leader Lovemore Chinoputsa.

Kasukuwere says the million-man-march will benefit Zimbabweans in many ways.
