Zimbabweans are masters of their own destiny

Staff Reporter

President Mnangagwa vowed to guard Zimbabwe jealously and ensure Zimbabweans enjoy their God given natural benefits.

During the burial of late National Hero, Brigadier General (Rtd) Benjamin Mabenge at the National Heroes Acre, President Mnangagwa re-assured Zimbabweans that under his watch Zimbabwe will forever be for Zimbabweans and ruled by Zimbabweans.

“Under my leadership and watch, Zimbabweans shall forever be masters of their own destiny, in charge of their rich God given natural resource endowments. Tisu vene venyika ino. Nyika inotongwa, inovakwa nevene vayo.

President Mnangagwa also said he was aware that detractors of the Second Republic have since shifted away from battle front to economic front through various mechanisations that they use today in waging asymmetrical warfare to make Zimbabwean economy scream and her people suffer. He promised to remain steadfast and jealously guard the country.

“While yesteryear the war was fought on the battle front, the Second Republic is well aware of the machinations of our detractors who are fighting us on the economic front. Today they are waging asymmetrical warfare to make our economy scream and our people suffer.

“Under my watch they will never succeed; we will never surrender our economy. Against all odds we will win the economic battle and attain a prosperous future for our people,” said the President.

As we approach 2023 Harmonised General Elections, President Mnangagwa implored all Zimbabweans to jealously guard their national unity and the prevailing tranquil environment. The President also urged the nation, all political parties, civil society organisations, the media and private individuals to desist from sowing seeds of hate, division and violence.

President Mnangagwa bid the late National Hero Mabenge who passed on the 1st   of August 2022 farewell whilst calling him a true son of the soil.
