The One Million-Man March to be held by the Zanu-Pf Youth League on Africa Day next week is strictly meant to celebrate Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe’s success as leader of the country since 1980 and as an African icon, the league’s deputy secretary, Cde Kudzai Chipanga, said yesterday.
At an update meeting on preparations for the march in Harare yesterday, Cde Chipanga said the event was meant for none other than President Mugabe.
“As the youth wing of the ruling party it is our responsibility to mobilize the nation in support and celebration of our President.
“I want to reaffirm the fact that the march is meant for none other than our President and through the march we are saying that the President must be and will remain our President till death do us part,” said Cde Chipanga.
He said all the wings of the ruling party, including the Women’s League, main wing, war veterans and the ex-detainees, were rallying behind the One Million-Man March.
“We have invited all the wings of the party to support the march, which is meant to show our gratitude to President Robert Mugabe.
“We also invite churches, youth associations, students and everyone else who voted for the President in 2013 to join us as we appreciate His Excellency’s leadership,” said Cde Chipanga.
He said mobilization of the masses for the cause was on course.
“All is now in place in as far as masses’ mobilization is concerned and we are now in the process of mobilizing resources for the march.
“We promise a march of its own kind as we celebrate the peaceful environment that has been brought by our President and the manner in which he is leading us towards economic solidarity.”
