WE ARE NOT BOTHERED ABOUT CHAMISA CROWDS : CHARAMBA
Zanu PF is not at all bothered by the crowds being pulled by MDC leader, Nelson Chamisa at his rallies.
“Zanu-PF is visible but not in opposition terms. We are fixing the economy; we are dealing with the bread and butter issues, which at the end of the day is what determines how a voter behaves on the day. But more importantly, we have our own schedule. We don’t copy an opponent’s strategy, you pursue your own,” said President Mnangagwa’s spokesman, George Charamba.
“What I see is really an excited juvenalian response to an election that looms large but a mature party doesn’t behave in that excited and excitable way.”
Charamba said the ruling party takes its sweet time and makes its own calculations on how to enter the political fray.
“I can assure you that as we move closer to the election period you will discover the mighty machine of Zanu-PF will be unleashed. I am not worried because this is a benefit by default isn’t it? You haven’t seen the crowds that Zanu-PF is going to pull eventually have you?” he said.
“So really, nothing is great or small except by comparison. So what are you comparing those crowds to? The key thing in politics is not to behave in a panicky mode or to adopt someone else’s strategy.”
