We will deal with economic saboteurs-Pres Mnangagwa

Staff Reporter

President Mnangagwa has vowed to deal with all economic saboteurs who were manipulating the country’s exchange rate in a bid to cause regime change in the country.

Addressing delegates at the on-going ZANU PF’s 7th National Youth Conference in the capital today, the President said that he was aware of some local people who were working in cahoots with the country’s detractors to cause regime change in the country.

“We are aware that some of our people are working with detractors to bring about regime change through the manipulation of our exchange rate and unjustified price hikes. My Government is seized with this matter and perpetrators will soon be brought to book. I exhort the youth of our country to be vigilant and help expose all these deviant malcontents and counter-revolutionaries,” said the President.

President Mnangagwa said the youths should defend the heritage of the country and urged the youths not to be led astray by some political malcontents who have invaded the local political space in Zimbabwe.

“Unlike the young people of yester-year who had to use the barrel of the gun, you must now defend this rich heritage through your votes. A vote for ZANU PF is a vote of our independence, freedom and sovereignty. It is a vote for development, a secure destiny and a brighter future. Never be led astray by the many wolves in sheep clothing roaming our political landscape. Do not sell your birth right for small trinkets,” added the President.

The President compelled the youths to be principled and remain patriotic and loyal in all circumstances.

Sezvo imi vechidiki muchine mazua akawanda mumusangano, defend and promote your Party and its Government in every circumstances. In all seasons be principled and unwavering members of ZANU PF who uphold the values of patriotism, loyalty, service, hard honest work, honesty and self-discipline. Kuchinaya, kuchipisa, kuchitonhora, makaguta uye marara nenzara, defend your Party and country,” said President Mnangagwa.

The President reiterated that the mantra, ‘Musangano kuma Cell’ should continue to guide the successful implementation of all youth programmes and activities. He added that the grassroots structures of the Party should always be at the centre of ZANU PF’s expected resounding victory in next year’s Harmonised General Elections.

Meanwhile, the ZANU PF Youth Conference will today elect the new national executive to replace the outgoing executive that has been in power since 2014, making it the longest serving ZANU PF National Youth Executive in the history of the Party.
