Hired youths in Mashonaland East yesterday almost disrupted First Lady Amai Grace Mugabe’s rally in Marondera by heckling other Zanu-PF members who were chanting slogans against factionalism.
Youths leaders who have been part of the First Lady’s entourage on her countrywide tour have come up with a slogan, “Pasi Negamatox” in reference to those fanning divisions in the revolutionary party.

But the rowdy youths threatened to disrupt proceedings as they objected to the chanting of the slogan.

Despite their protestations, a number of Zanu-PF officials from the party’s structures continued to chant the slogan and it had to take Politburo member Cde Shuvai Mahofa to advise the crowd what the slogan was all about.

“When we say “Pasi Negamatox” we will be referring to people who are causing divisions and instability in the party,” Cde Mahofa said.

Zanu-PF Youth League political commissar Cde John Mushai said the party had well known slogans and “Pasi Negamatox” was not one of them.

This is the second time that youths linked to a faction in the party threatened to disrupt Amai Mugabe’s rallies.

In Manicaland province last week, youths who claimed they were linked to Zanu-PF secretary for Administration Cde Didymus Mutasa attacked youths from Harare, who were accompanying the First Lady. The situation nearly degenerated into chaos were it not for the intervention of the police.

It later emerged that the youths had been given free beer and dagga by a senior member to give them “the Dutch courage” to heckle the First Lady while she was speaking.

    But how do you deal with a Zimbabwean who goes into the USA and openly invites them to impose sanctions onto Zimbabwe, its industries, peoples and economic activity for life. Have you had sight of or read of the Zimbabwe Democracy & Recovery Act 2001, also known as ZIDERA? It is available on the net for world to see and read. This document represents strangulation of Zimbabwe today and its near future and there are Zimbabweans who have approached the Americans to put it into action. This document allows for poison into Zimbabwe and it shall be a mammoth task to reverse this position. The slogan, “pasi naTsvangirai” should be viewed in exactly the same manner in which ZIDERA looks at Zimbabwe with no apology at all.
