Chivayo worships Mnangagwa – ZimEye
Chivayo adores Mnangagwa
By Wicknell Chivayo
Every year, SEPTEMBER 15 marks a day of great celebration. It presents an indelible cause to the nation and people of Zimbabwe to celebrate one of its illustrious and finest statesmen that this country has ever had since its dark years of liberation struggle. In this particular year, 2022, the day remarkably symbolizes the 80th anniversary of a prominent stalwart of the war of liberation, a decorated patriot and a man of distinguished character and wisdom, His Excellency Cde. Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa!
YOUR EXCELLENCY, on this esteemed occasion of your 80th birthday, we are humbled and delighted as the young blood of this great nation of Zimbabwe, to be led by your wise counsel. The rooted story of our liberation struggle can never be complete without mentioning your name and the pivotal role you played alongside other valiant sons of the soil. The unfettered freedom we enjoy today came at the expense of your selfless sacrifice to answer the patriotic call to free your country from the yore slavery of our former colonial masters at a very tender age.
YOUR EXCELLENCY, you displayed unparalleled bravery and unparalleled heroism in leading various tactical militia groups whose primary objective was to defeat colonial forces in what was then Fort Victoria in 1964, a getaway which put your life in immense danger and led to your incarceration for a decade. But even that did not dampen your courage and hope for an independent Zimbabwe where every citizen enjoys all their political and socio-economic rights.
YOUR EXCELLENCY as a REVOLUTIONARY, you have always been committed to the ideals of the liberation struggle – that of full political and economic emancipation – to this day, a distinction from which we draw very rich inspiration. Your principles on the economic empowerment of Zimbabweans were highlighted by your enviable mantra, “Nyika inovakwa nevene vayo”.
YOUR EXCELLENCY, true to this mantra and under your able leadership, the Nation of Zimbabwe has experienced unprecedented economic growth during the tenure of the Second Republic. As a young generation, we have been thrilled to witness extraordinary infrastructure development in a remarkably short period of time, which is a testament to your dedication to achieving your VISION of making Zimbabwe an upper middle income economy by 2030.
YOUR EXCELLENCY, at no other time has Zimbabwe seen all of its main roads upgraded to world class standards as under your administration. You have demonstrated a remarkable desire to rebuild and develop Zimbabwe into a modern state comparable to 1st world economies in the 21st century. With your guidance, various medical facilities have been upgraded and state-of-the-art equipment has been installed. Previously closed mines and industries have been reopened while new ones have been brought into operation under your capable leadership. All this unparalleled economic development has created many employment opportunities for our young compatriots who now revere being Zimbabweans and accept your leadership and the “People’s Party”, ZANU PF!
THE HEAD OF STATE AND GOVERNMENT, COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF OF THE ZIMBABWE DEFENSE FORCES, we join you and salute your efforts to protect the sacrosanct socio-political independence and territorial sovereignty of Zimbabwe. We pay tribute to you, especially on your birthday, for your fierce fight against the neo-imperialist machinations of those who still regard Zimbabwe as an extension of their political annexes. We fully embrace and support your calls to denounce the illegal SANCTIONS imposed on our beautiful country by its former colonizers and aided by their cronies in the form of successful political opposition formations. As the youth and vanguards of the relentless liberation struggle, we UNRESERVELY express our patronage and submit fully to your capable leadership and that of our Party, ZANU PF!
YOUR EXCELLENCY, your stewardship of the Second Republic gave birth to an economic stability that had been historically shaken by the effects of illegal SANCTIONS invited by hopeless opposition political gangs bent on self-aggrandizement at the expense of the masses. Against all expectations, we have experienced a remarkable fall in the prices of goods and services in recent weeks, all in response to your wise interventions through the introduction of the Mosi-a-Tunya gold coin and other measures intended to curb runaway inflation.
YOUR EXCELLENCY the NATION of Zimbabwe revels in your astuteness and remarkable insight. Suffice it to say that the 2023 ELECTIONS are the easiest to predict given the resounding and well-defined efforts of the ZANU PF Party and Government to deliver on all their promises in the 2018 elections. We reiterate our unwavering support, in as YOUTH of Zimbabwe, to your leadership and that of ZANU PF. We will always be ready to complement your tremendous efforts to build this nation, “brick on brick, stone on stone”.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHUMBA MURAMBWI!!!
