President Robert Mugabe says it is important for Zimbabweans to remember the nation’s history as it will constantly remind them what a precious possession it is to them.
Speaking to thousands of supporters near the Mkoba Teachers’ College in Gweru on Friday, President Mugabe spent most of his time reciting the nation’s history.
President Mugabe said Zimbabweans are ready to sacrifice their lives again should there be anyone who wants to take Zimbabwe back to colonial bondage.
Mr. Mugabe said he is aware that in the 2008 polls people voted for the MDC formation led by Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai as a way of protesting over the hardships they were facing.
But Mugabe said given what he said is a poor track record in the inclusive government he would be surprised if people voted for the MDC-T again.
He also slammed MDC-T councilors charging that they used councils’ revenue to line their pockets and forgot to deliver services to the people.
The Zanu PF leader repeated Local Government Minister Ignatius Chombo’s assertion that government would write off residents’ debts in urban local authorities across the country.
President Mugabe said if elected into office his party would continue to empower locals by continuing to give them land and assisting them to start their own companies.
The Zanu PF leader also slammed homosexuality and urged people to uphold good morals.
President Mugabe also promised that he will talk to Reserve Bank governor Gideon Gono so that people who still have the country’s disused currency can be compensated.
