The First Lady, Grace Mugabe has taken a swipe at those who are involved in factional fights, saying divisions were not good for the Zanu PF party and the country.
Addressing thousands of Zanu PF supporters at the Zanu PF Convention Centre in Gweru, The First Lady said instead of focusing on factional fights, people should come together and find ways that can address some of the challenges facing the country.
She said factionalism and disunity are ingredients for disturbances in a country.
“To all those engaging in factionalism, don’t you learn? You must learn from the MDC. Money is nothing, if it worked for one’s benefit, we could today be talking of a post Mugabe era, because the West tried to use money to remove Zanu PF by creating opposition parties but it failed. This is because God’s plans can never be influenced by people or money,” said Dr Mugabe.
She urged Zimbabweans to cherish the peace and tranquillity currently prevailing in the country.
Dr Mugabe said Zimbabweans must remain resolute as the country’s leader find ways to address some of the challenges facing the country.
The First Lady, who donated 30 tonnes of seed maize, warned politicians against abusing the Presidential Input Support Scheme, which was introduced to support small holder and communal farmers.
Her remarks came in the wake of reports that some politicians in Mashonaland Central Province are diverting the seed for their personal gain.
