ZANU PF Youth League Political Commissar Tsenengamu has scoffed at the November 2017 March against former President Robert Mugabe which ushered in the new dispensation arguing that the march did not yield anything meaningful.
Writing on his Facebook page Tsenengamu said that marches do not bring any change in Zimbabwe.
“SOMEONE BETTER ADVISE OUR FRIENDS THAT FOOD RIOTS AND PROTESTS SINCE THE 1990s NEVER YIELDED RESULTS.
EVEN THE NOVEMBER 2017 STREET MARCH DIDN’T ACHIEVE THAT,” wrote Tsenengamu on his Facebook page.
Analysts have described Tsenengamu statements as a clear indication of factional fights in the ruling Party.
“He was instrumental in organising the November 2017 March which brought Mnangagwa (Emmerson) to power and now he is saying otherwise which means he no longer believes in the regime,” said Tapera Mlambo.
Mlambo’s sentiments were also echoed by Nelson Chamisa spokesperson Nkululeko Sibanda who said that ZANU PF was trying to discredit their August 16 planned march by planting ZANU PF youths.
“This is a smokescreen for the violence the Mnangagwa’s extra legal militias recruited from the Zanu PF youth win are planning to unleash on peaceful demonstrators. We know that the army and government are planning violence and have threatened violence,” Sibanda said.
“We warn Mnangagwa to keep murderers off the streets and away from peaceful protestors. He can’t barricade himself at State House using human bodies,” Sibanda said.
