“If you do not vote for me, Mugabe will do so.” Chamisa
Opposition MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa has declared that he has the full backing of former President Robert Mugabe and is assured of his vote in the upcoming elections.
Addressing thousands of his party supporters in Mvurwi Mashonaland Central province over the weekend, the youthful opposition presidential aspirant disclosed that the former Zanu PF strongman Mugabe had endorsed his candidature.
“How can we lose an election to a disjointed ruling party? Mugabe pledged to vote for me. So if you do not vote for me, Mugabe will do so. Hence, if I happen to lose, I will know that it is you, not Mugabe, since I already have his vote,” he told the rally.
Chamisa also called on Vice-President Constantino Chiwenga to take a break from politics, saying the former military commander had failed to find his feet in the country’s fast-shifting political terrain.
“Chiwenga is a military man. He should relax and leave us the young people to govern the country. Recently, he said people of Zimbabwe should not worry about cash. Honestly, how can he say that cash is not important? Give me a chance in government and enjoy life,” Chamisa pleaded.
He took the opportunity to endorse MDC-T aspiring legislator Tulani Ndlovu ahead of MDC Alliance candidate Tinashe Muchenje.
“We know you had problems with your candidates here, but we have seen that Ndlovu is more popular and with him, we are assured of winning the seat. He stands a better chance against the incumbent MP Martin Dinha (Zanu PF),” he said.
