ZIMBABWE People First (ZPF) leader, Joice Mujuru, says the years she spent as vice president were the most frustrating of her political career as President Robert Mugabe never listened to her advice and neither did he listen to anyone else.
Mujuru said this Wednesday during a meeting with ZPF Harare province youths. She told the youths that she was guided by traditional and Christian values and, as such, she was not interested in slogans denouncing other people.
“Pasina na Tsvangirai or someone like that means that person must die. This is what we were taught during the liberation war training and it was meant for the people that we were fighting against and was never meant to be repeated later.
“This is why I am appealing to all the youths who are gathered here to desist from uttering slogans such as being used by Zanu PF. Never use such slogans; they promote hate and disharmony within the country.”
Mujuru also said that she was never part of any Zanu PF political dirty games that were played against opposition leaders and their followers.
She also told the youths that between April and June ZPF will be registering new members. Mujuru said a membership card similar to a visa card with a chip was being designed and would be unveiled soon.
“In July, there shall be ward elections followed by elections at constituency level in August; come September provincial polls and then October elective congress,” said Mujuru.
The former Zanu PF number two was sacked from the ruling party in December 2014 during the run up to the party’s congress. She alongside other Zanu PF stalwarts, were fired on allegations of plotting to remove Mugabe from power, witchcraft and fanning factionalism.
