which thrives on violence and the insecurity of our people, to be relevant. Shame – shame – shame on you!

“The life and property of every Zimbabwean are important and will be protected by my Government. Our security apparatus is on alert. We will not stand by and watch the good image of our nation as well as the safety and security of our people being desecrated by rogue pseudo politicians who receive dirty money to torment their own African kith and kin.

“I call upon the nation at large, across all provinces, districts and wards to refuse to be used by self-seeking charlatans, masquerading as politicians. Rambai kushandiswa kuita violence. Parents and guardians, please guide our youth accordingly. Violence does not pay.”
