Minister of State for Masvingo Provincial Affair, Josaya Dunira Hungwe has said he has had enough of politics and will retire after the general elections that are expected to be held between July and August this year.
Speaking during the official opening of a 4.1 km tarred road built by Chiredzi Rural District Council (RDC) in Hippo Valley on Tuesday, Hungwe said he just wanted to make sure that President Emmerson Mnangagwa wins the elections before he goes to rest.
“The main issue is that we have to campaign for ED in order for him to win this coming election. Soon after his victory, I will retire from service because there is nothing more I still need on this earth so if he wins, I will retire and leave for heaven.
“People should vote for Mnangagwa because he went to Davos, he deserves another term of office,” said Hungwe.
He also urged Zanu PF members who lost in the party’s chaos-marred primary elections to accept defeat, unite and win a landslide for Mnangagwa.
He said the outcome of the primaries should just be accepted because the problem could be have been caused by a bigger problem in the system which needs time to be sorted out.
“Elections were reported to have been rigged across the country. Many people were found missing in the voters roll and you don’t have to take it personally because it was the system. Those you are blaming might not be the trouble causers,” said Hungwe.
