Jomic in clean-up exercise

THE three main political parties’ representatives in Manicaland Province this week, held a joint clean-up campaign organised by the Joint Monitoring and Implementation Committee (Jomic).

The campaign that started with a procession from Green Market to city centre, witnessed activists from Zanu PF and the two MDCs jointly cleaning Meikles Park while wearing their different party regalia and chanting party songs before they all donned Jomic T-shirts.

Manicaland provincial chairperson Julius Magarangoma, from the main MDC encouraged everyone despite their affiliation to any political party, to focus on development and peace.

“What we need to do is to put our heads together despite our different political affiliations and shape the way for a better Zimbabwe we all yearn for. We are one people, one family, we don’t need to be violent,” he said.

He said things are slowly getting better as people are tolerating each other, though in minor ways but in a progressive fashion.

Magarangoma encouraged everyone to be an agent of peace.

“Let’s all be agents of peace,” he said.

He concluded by urging people to continue carrying out such exercises.

“This should not be the end. We should cascade this same unity we have shown today to everyone at every level,” he said.

Zanu PF Manicaland political commissar Samanga, who was standing in for the party’s provincial Jomic co-chair Mike Madiro, said the exercise was meant to promote co-existence among all people of different political parties and lead to fair and violent-free elections.

MDC’s Davis Murirwa explained to people that Jomic is not a replacemet of the police, but works with police reports to promote peace, tolerance and unity among the people.

Inspector Chishiri, who is the police provincial spokesperson reminded the people about the core business of the police and said it is to maintain peace.

Speaking in separate interviews, members of the three parties said they were cultivating a culture of unity and working together for the purposes of development.
