Staff Reporter

The Office of the President and Cabinet (OPC) has commended President Emmerson Mnangagwa for his statesmanship, patriotism and commitment to serving his country and people.

Speaking through a press statement today, the Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet, Dr. Misheck Sibanda hailed President Mnangagwa as a skilled and experienced political leader.

“A true patriot, fearless revolutionary and a veteran of the Second Chimurenga that liberated Zimbabwe from colonial bondage, Cde Mnangagwa has devoted an entire lifetime to nation-building and the advancement of the values of freedom, unity, peace and solidarity in pursuit of the development agenda.

“Through his wise stewardship of the Second Republic under the mantra: “Nyika inovakwa nevene vayo” / “Ilizwe lakhiwa ngabanikazi balo.” Zimbabwe is scaling new heights in the entrenchment of democratic values and institutions which facilitate socio-economic empowerment of the previously downtrodden majority,” said Dr Sibanda.

Dr Sibanda and the OPC praised President Mnangagwa for his transformative leadership as the country pushes towards Vision 2030.

“We laud His Excellency the President for his transformative leadership towards an Empowered and Prosperous Upper Middle Income Society by 2030.

“As we celebrate this happy occasion, we pray that the Lord Almighty grants His Excellency, the President, more years of good health as he leads the nation and strengthens unity in social and cultural diversity,” he said.

President Mnangagwa turned 80 years old yesterday.
