via We will rule till donkeys grow horns: Moyo – Nehanda Radio 22 June 2014
Zanu PF chairman Simon Khaya-Moyo yesterday said the party will rule until donkeys grow horns, as he gathered several government ministers to address issues affecting Matabeleland that have given rise to sentiments that the region is marginalised.
Khaya-Moyo told a joint Zanu PF provincial council meeting for Matabeleland South, North and Bulawayo that the region was not benefitting from a lot of national projects and people were suffering.
However, the Senior Minister in President Robert Mugabe’s office said despite the challenges, Zanu PF’s stranglehold on power would not be threatened.
“We are going to rule for a very long time,” he said to wild cheers. “We will rule until donkeys grow horns.
“Come 2018, all seats in Matabeleland will be in Zanu PF hands. Let’s work to strengthen the party and that would be through showing respect among each other at all levels.”
Khaya Moyo said he would soon convene a meeting for the three Zanu PF provincial chairpersons and the Provincial Affairs ministers so that they can work together harmoniously.
This followed an impassioned plea by Chief Dingani Nelukoba of Hwange who revealed that there was chaos in the allocation of conservancies in Matabeleland North province.
He said he recently had an offer letter for a conservancy withdrawn after the animal sanctuary was allocated to a Harare-based company.
Khaya-Moyo appeared to be irked by the absence of Matabeleland North Provincial Affairs minister Cain Mathema at the forum held at Elangeni Training Centre in Bulawayo.
“It appears there is a serious gap here,” he said. “It’s not only Chief Nelukoba who is affected by this [confusion], it has affected a lot of people.
“May those recording minutes of this meeting take note of this and it will be taken up by Monday. If it is not solved, I will end up going there myself.
“These are the issues we have to address. You can’t go around saying I am a senior minister if you are not working. The Provincial Affairs minister is not here.
“I need to arrange a meeting with the provincial chairpersons and the Provincial Affairs ministers because we can’t work like that. The party is superior, you can’t go around boasting that I am a senior minister.”
Bulawayo Provincial Affairs minister Eunice Sandi Moyo and her Matabeleland South counterpart Abedinico Ncube attended the meeting.
Other ministers who addressed the forum were Douglas Mombeshora (Lands and Resettlement), Obert Mpofu (Transport), Saviour Kasukuwere (Water and Climate) and Sithembiso Nyoni (Small and Medium Enterprises).
In the past senior Zanu PF leaders from the region were accused of paying lip service to issues affecting Matabeleland.
Well look at that! We have a new prophet khaya moyo in our midst who is predicting that a new creation of “donkeys with horns” are going to be released on earth in the very near future.!! He must be a very clever and religeous man with all his predictions!
When are the Matabele/Zulu going to rise up against ‘the snakes that crawl on their bellies’? I may well be wrong but I think the RF and us ‘honkies’ believed that Nkomo would win the election in 1980. We detested Joshua, mainly because of his laughing on the David Frost Show about the two missiled Viscounts and the murder of survivors of the first. But we were also well aware of the megalomaniac terrorist Mugabe whose military forces raped, tortured and killed missionaries,children and babies and nuns at Elim Mission. There wasn’t much to choose between them but Nkomo, being Ndebele, seemed preferable. If he had won, Zimbabwe might be a different place from today. Pick up your pride Matabeles!
You, dear woman, are an idiot. Anyone who thought that Joshua Nkomo would win the 1980 election is a few sandwiches short of a picnic. How any sane person could believe that with people voting along tribal lines the 18% party could beat the 77% party or that the 5% party would hold the balance of power was clearly smoking something a lot stronger than tobacco.
Not necessary Kevin..
Angela neither one was any good, what use to humanity is a terrorist? Muzorewa should have kept hitting their camps hard, he was our only hope for a government that could have worked. Pity the Selous boys hit the wrong car on the airport rd.
Do pigs fly ? Joshua boy paid for his terrorism. Criminals acre for cowardly murderers
Dear Simon, I trust you have already told God the same thing?????
Never in a thousand years!!!
In case you had not noticed all you ZPF already have horns. So time to go I guess
Just go and look in parliament and you will see a large number of donkeys with horns fool.
Simon Moyo is only saying his party will rule for a very long time. With Tsvangirai now campaigning for Mnangagwa or Mujuru to take over the presidency, I think Simon has a point.
The horned donkeys will probably do a better job than the current hornless variety!!
The horned devils have evolved from parasites to complete evil monsters with no thought of bringing Zimbabwe up again. What war are they still fighting. I and all Zimbabweans are confused by the Zanu agenda. What is it for GODS SAKE.
That will not happen unless you employ gukurahundi tactics!!
Or until Zimbabweans get tired of the lies, deceit and living with an empty stomach and get rid of the arrogant donkeys in power. They already burnt one police post……
