Bulawayo blames Masvingo and Midlands for booing Grace Mugabe
Zanu-PF Bulawayo province has blamed Midlands and Masvingo which are perceived to be Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s strongholds, of booing Grace Mugabe during her interface rally address on Saturday.
Zanu-PF Bulawayo provincial chairman Dennis Ndlovu said:
It emerged that from the small clique which tried to disrupt the rally, most of them were people from outside the province, particularly the Midlands and Masvingo. They were brought in buses and coordinated by expelled party chairmen and known rogue elements such as (Magure) Charumbira.
Politburo member Absolom Sikhosana also echoed the same view and warned those behind the booing. Said Sikhosana:
I want to warn those behind the madness that happened on Saturday at White City Stadium that they should stop. It is very true that Bulawayo people are very angry over the insults directed to President Mugabe and the First Lady Dr Grace Mugabe. The people behind that madness were not even invited and at no time did we request their assistance during the preparations for the Presidential Youth Interface Rally. We can’t have a situation where people boo our leaders and certainly that is unacceptable.
