National People’s Party (NPP) vice president Dr John Shumba Mvundura last week urged supporters to shun violence ahead of elections during the launch of the party’s campaign at Hala Hotel in Bindura.
Dr Mvundura said their friends across the African continent are confident their party president Dr Joice Mujuru will be the first female president in Zimbabwe. He also allayed fears that the electorate would be confused about their alliance, People’s Rainbow Coalition (PRC), fronted by their president.
“As we start our campaign let there be a difference. Even in the Bible it is stated that Christians are identified by their deeds. We don’t want violence,” said Dr Mvundura.
“The alliance was an agreement with other parties so that we could work together. On the day of election look for the train symbol don’t worry about faces, don’t be confused or look for NPP.
“We have travelled to several African countries in recent weeks and they are confident that Dr Mujuru is going to become the first elected female president in Southern Africa. On July 30 Dr Mujuru will become the first female president of Zimbabwe. In Malawi Joyce Banda was not elected, but took over following the death of president Bingu wa Mutharika.”
He said the issue of regalia was a cause of concern, but their party leaders were trying by all means to manage the situation. “We cannot get into the nitty-gritty of the issue of regalia because we don’t want to wash our linen in the open. We know it’s now late, but we think we can still do something about the issue,” said Dr Mvundura.
“Mashonaland Central has the largest number of female candidates among all provinces. You have shown that women are important, women are usually jealous of each other and don’t usually support each other.
“We cannot talk about our strategy because of those who have come to eavesdrop, it’s your work and we welcome you to the winning team. I promise you that in five weeks we will know your faces because we will be working together.”
NPP provincial chairperson, Mr Godfrey Chimombe said no one will defeat Dr Mujuru in Mash Central because she is mother in the province.
