Zanu-PF Youths Exchange Blows Over T-Shirts At Peace March





Another youth, Bright Nyereyemhuka, who said he came from Glenview to take part in the march, had no kind words for the youth league leadership as he accused it of stealing t-shirts.

“This is the worst leadership ever. They are busy stealing t-shirts and giving them to their friends. If you go and check in that car (belonging to one of the youth leaders) you will see a lot of t-shirts stashed in there by we are here fighting to get the little that is left. How can we say we are in the new dispensation when we are still treated the same way or worse than the old regime,” noted one youth who was frothing with anger.

However, Harare Youth Provincial Chairman, Godwin Gomwe told 263Chat that the scuffle was necessitated by the shortage of t-shirts and urged party supporters not to lose heart as he said more t-shirts were on the way in other rallies.

“Yes, we noticed that there were fights over t-shirts. The truth is we did not bring enough for everyone. we only got 15 000 t-shirts as the youth league and we have been dishing them out not only here but at some events as well. So we understand why there were fights, its because everyone wants to be associated with the Zanu-PF brand which gives us courage ahead of the elections,” said Gomwe.

Questioned on the motive behind the march and if it was not a reaction to the MDC Alliance Demonstration held in the capital yesterday, Gomwe said there was a call to peace for everyone ahead of the July 30 elections.

“We wanted to bring peace awareness to every citizen, regardless of their political affiliation. we are saying we need to unite as a nation and exercise restraint ahead of the elections. We want peace, tolerance and unity from all citizens. That is why we held this peaceful march,” said Gomwe. – 263Chat
