Zanu PF confident of victory

HARARE - As the country prepares for the “do-or-die” poll on July 31, Zanu PF supporters in Mashonaland East Province are targeting nothing but victory.

On the sidelines of a rally addressed by President Robert Mugabe in Marondera on Monday, the Daily News team consisting of Wendy Muperi and Xolisani Ncube spoke to party supporters about the forthcoming vote.

Maidah Chimanya, 40

I believe Zanu PF will trounce MDC in the impending election.

Our candidate for Marondera Central, Ray Kaukonde will win against Ian Kay because of his renewed relationship with the people of Marondera and his straight forwardness.

We expect that Kaukonde will bring development and unity in Marondera.

Koreas Sixpence Tomboriro, 60

President Robert Mugabe will give an end to the Government of National Unity (GNU). We will win the election with a thud.

Our parliamentary candidate comrade Kaukonde’s personality has striking resemblances with President Mugabe himself.

He is brave, consistent and honest.

We expect that our constituency will develop much better than in the past because he is also keen on implementing what he says.

Before the inclusive government, people were lied to and their expectations were not fulfilled. As we talk to people, they are saying it is better to vote for our party, the tried and tested Zanu PF.

Ruth Gavhu, 61

This year, the comeback of Ray Kaukonde is much welcome because he is a respectable man.

I believe with candidates of repute like him and President Mugabe, victory is certain. The few seats that had been taken by MDC are coming back to Zanu PF after election.

We want electricity. For example Garikai, he has already promised to install electricity and develop road infrastructure. All I ask is for him to remain true to his promises.

Joyce Nyakutsvenda, 57 Zanu PF will win because patirikupfuura napo tatopfuura napo zvachose. Robert Mugabe ndiye anotopinda hamusikuonawo chaunga ichi.

I am certain because I am part of the mobilising team, when we pass through a place; we make sure we weed thoroughly.

I am a war collaborator. I expect Kaukonde to remember us as contributors to the independence of Zimbabwe.

In terms of council, we expect Kaukonde to work with councillors who are going to come in and ensure that people do not lose their houses to cumulative council debts.

As council employees, we have days when we do not get paid and we are starving whilst we are working. Zvinondirwadza.

Ever Chimedza, 49.

If I also look at it as a war collaborator, I can see we have gone back to 1980 and the party will win with a very huge margin, from the council to the president all of our candidates will win with a thud.

On Kaukonde, even MDC supporters in this constituency actually love this man and are saying they will vote for him and Mugabe because they are organised leaders.

I would want our MP to treat everyone equally. He said he does not want gossip and I want him to remain like that when he gets into Parliament.

Council water should be safe and he should stop the summons troubling the elderly. As collaborators we have tried unsuccessfully to block the summons.

Clara Hove, 53

This is the time for Zanu PF. I strongly believe that the party’s parliamentary candidate will win because he was once our governor and he did well.

He is still a man after the people’s hearts just like the president.

Farai Mukava, 27

The person who we are working with, Kaukonde is a well-known person in Mashonaland East Province and he is strong enough.

There will not be another inclusive government, it will be Zanu PF alone and therefore development will be certain, our candidates will have no excuses.

We want jobs, opening up of closed industries, safe drinking water and decent housing for the young.

The other thing I would want from our party is for them to make a record for Zanu PF households in the constituency.

The actual numbers of people who vote per household should be recorded before election so that when we go for elections we compare the outcome.

What is happening is tirikuhwandirana vamwe vanhu varikungopfeka maT-shirts eZanu PF asi vachizonotichera kuMDC.- Kana tiri 100 ka, tinenge tiri 50 mamwe maMDC.

These people are mad. Do they even know that their Gukurahundi leader is 90, I wonder? Its beyond comprehension that a 20 something year old can be so crazy about 90 year old Mugabe - really what do you expect a Mkhulu to do for you? Can your own grandfather deliver anything to you right now - or there is something you are busy smoking right now?

Phunyukabemphethe - 17 July 2013

This is hilarious hanzi we want industries that closed to be opened, clean drinkin water etc but who brought the indutry closures and was unable to provide water and electricity? It is zanu saka voting for the same people that havent been perfoming for 33years will change all that. Misoro yakazara mvura yega yega

Vanhu ava vanorota, when will these people open their eyes and see the truth. Vanhu vakadhibha ava.

What was ZANU-PF and PF ZAPU manifestos in 1980? What was ZANU PF manifesto in 2008? One issue was unique-Zimbabweans should be musters of their own. In other words you do not expect anyone to lift you up, you must lift up yourself by the means of your shoelesses. The truth is hard to believe but it remains the truth. We own our resources in the air, on ground and under ground. These are the ones to improve us - not anyone.

dungas - 18 July 2013

@dungas why then are those resources not "improving" us? Don't give us the stinking rhetoric about imaginary sanctions.
