Transform Zimbabwe leader Jacob Ngarivhume says only a person with clean hands can turnaround the fortunate of the country, adding that President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s hands are too dirty for that task.
Zimbabwe is currently facing a cocktail of challenges fronted by crippling cash crisis, massive deindustrialisation, and lack of foreign direct investment, lack of credit line, low production levels and lack of confidence, among many others.
These challenges have been attributed to poor governance systems by the Robert Mugabe’s establishment where Mnangagwa and all current top government officials have been a part of.
Since November last year he took an oath of office, Mnangagwa has been blaming the former President and G40 for the current economic situation and promised to do things differently.
However, while addressing MDC Alliance supporters during a rally at Cross Dete in Matabeleland North, Ngarivhume said President Mnangagwa is just the same with Mugabe and there is nothing new that came from him, adding that Zimbabwe needs someone new.
“Mnangagwa and Mugabe are the same. There is nothing new that he will bring to this country. They were together destroying our national resources since 1980.
“We all know that ED is responsible for the Gukurahundi that was suffered in this province. Only a person with clean hands is required for this country,” he said.
Ngarivhume also encouraged supporters to continue being united in supporting the MDC Alliance which was crafted by the late Morgan Tsvangirai adding that only a united opposition front has the realistic chances of defeating Zanu PF in the upcoming general elections.
“As a convergence of seven political parties brought together by Tsvangirai, we don’t want to disappoint him by working against his vision.
“We also say no to violence and let us now prepare to lead this great country,” Ngarivhume said.
The Transform Zimbabwe leader also called on the supporters to work with alliance candidates in their respective areas and vote for them in the elections.
Transform Zimbabwe is one of the seven opposition parties that have agreed to the idea of MDC Alliance which endorsed Nelson Chamisa to take the place of Tsvangirai as the candidate for the 2018 elections.
