ZANU PF bigwigs closed down Mutare on Saturday as they flaunted their top-of-the-range all-terrain vehicles amid poverty-stricken citizens, mostly vendors, who were awe-struck by the procession which criss-crossed the city as the party gurus prepared for President Robert Mugabe’s rally on Friday.

First to be caught by surprise were football fans at Sakubva Stadium, when the bigwigs invaded the pitch with just seven minutes to the kick-off of a match between former Premiership side Buffaloes and Tenax.

The referees, fans, football officials could not do anything, as the match was delayed by almost 20 minutes.

“The delegation had initially met at Mutare Polytechnic. From here (Mutare Polytechnic), we are going to the venue (Sakubva Stadium), where our President will address us. Let’s line up our vehicles let’s put on hazards and go at Sakubva Stadium,’’ said de facto head of delegation and Zanu PF provincial youth leader, Mubuso Chinguno, as he led the procession.

The entourage included Zanu PF youth leader Kudzanayi Chipanga, Finance minister Patrick Chinamasa, Provincial Affairs minister Mandiitawepi Chimene, Information minister Christopher Mushohwe and Energy minister Samuel Undenge, among others.

Vendors at Sakubva market and flea market could not help, but marvel at the procession, as it snaked its way past their stalls.

“My observation is that this venue is too small. (Mutare) Aerodrome would have been much better, but it’s now water under the bridge,” Mushohwe said after inspection of the stadium.

But Chipanga insisted that the venue was ideal, adding the youths had organised additional tents to cater for the overflow.

“This venue is good. Tents will be here by Monday (today). There is going to be an overflow,” he said.

From the stadium, the Zanu PF motorcade shocked vendors at Boka business centre, as it arrived unannounced and briefly made a stopover at Dangamvura Post Office, which is set to be converted into an information and communication centre.

Mugabe is expected to officially open the information and communication centre before addressing the rally at Sakubva Stadium.

Addressing youth leaders after a tour of the facilities, Chimene said on Friday, all defective vehicles carrying party supporters to the rally would be allowed to pass through police roadblocks without hitches.

“You said some vehicles do not have wheels, but I will make sure that they will not be harassed. We want to support you the youth. This is not our thing, but we want to make sure that we are supporting you,” she said.

    I had to read the statements given below twice, as I was sure that my eyes were cheating me…

    “Addressing youth leaders after a tour of the facilities, Chimene said on Friday, all defective vehicles carrying party supporters to the rally would be allowed to pass through police roadblocks without hitches.

    “You said some vehicles do not have wheels, but I will make sure that they will not be harassed. We want to support you the youth. This is not our thing, but we want to make sure that we are supporting you,” she said.”

    Try and imagine these “defective vehicles” and those that “do not have wheels” arriving for the rally. The rallyists will think that they are under attack by Renamo and advance in the wrong direction! Is there no end to the madness of these dead brains that call themselves our leaders…well as someone said many years ago…”power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely”. And imagine how angry all the ZRPs at the roadblocks will be when they see such extreme wealth opportunities disappearing before their very eyes!

    I had to shake my head and smile when I imagined the Zanu PF Provincial youth leader Mubuso Chinguno standing there like Julius Caesar commanding, “Let’s line up our vehicles and put on our hazards and onward to Sakubva Stadium! We will show them povo!” Almost like children playing a silly game, with us the people of Zimbabwe as their playthings. And imagine the National Minister of Finance Patrick Chinamasa allowing himself to be part of this childish game.

    For their rallies Mugabe and his cronies will stop at nothing to put on a show of strength…next they will be emptying our graves to get good head counts. Now that I think of it, that’s probably where they got Mugabe from, for that Marondera one…

    Reminds me of Ushewukonze’s wedding procession – every BMW and Merc in the convoy freshly stolen twice. First from the SA owners and secondly from the Custom’s State Warehouse.
