Zanu PF chairman threatens civil servants

Provincial chairman Richard Moyo

ZANU PF Matabeleland North provincial chairperson Richard Moyo yesterday urged civil servants to work towards implementing the party’s policies or risk losing their jobs.


Speaking at the victory celebrations of Nkayi North MP Sithembiso Nyoni at Gwelutshena in the constituency yesterday, Moyo said civil servants should not work to serve the agenda of losing political parties.

“As civil servants, you should promote ZimAsset. If you have a different view, we do not go with you,” Moyo warned.

“If you want to work with those that lost, you will end up losing even in your office that you sit in.”

Moyo hailed the leadership of President Robert Mugabe and Zanu PF national chairperson Simon Khaya Moyo who was the guest of honour at the event.

“We want to say that as a province we do not have factions. We are united under the leadership of President Mugabe,” Moyo said.

He paid tribute to Khaya Moyo for inspiring a Zanu PF clean sweep of Matabeleland South in last year’s elections.

Addressing the gathering, Khaya Moyo conveyed his condolences to relatives of Zimbabweans who died in a disused mine shaft in South Africa recently.

“We are sorry about our brothers who died in South Africa in a mine,” said Khaya Moyo.

He paid tribute to the people of Nkayi North for voting Zanu PF in last July’s elections saying the late Vice-President Joshua Nkomo had left them in Mugabe’s hands and those who claim to have pulled out were not signatories to the 1987 Unity Accord.

Nyoni said the Matabeleland North provincial leadership was fully behind Khaya Moyo’s leadership.

Giving a vote of thanks, Chief Sikhobokhobo urged people to accept Mugabe’s leadership claiming that he was sent by God.

“When something is laid by God, we must not question it. President Mugabe was given to us by God, so we must accept his leadership,” the chief said.
