Zanu PF members should move away from comparing their politics to those of the opposition, Zanu PF aspiring legislator has said.
Speaking at the burial of a party member on Monday in Gweru, Mkoba South candidate, Wellington Magura said the new campaign strategy for Zanu PF should be that of convincing voters what the party offers instead of merely denouncing the opposition.
“In our campaign strategies we should preach the good we want to do instead of denouncing the next person,”Magura said.
“We should not compare our politics with those of others. Let the politics of Zanu PF reflect the nature of the country.”
Magura said the ruling party should preach the gospel of peace ahead of this year’s harmonised elections.
“We have a duty to safeguard peace and the life of our people,”he said.
“We should borrow from President ED Mnangagwa who always say peace begins with you, peace begins with me and peace begins with all of us.”
Over the years Zanu PF has been accused of propagating hate speech and denouncing the opposition.
Analysts however say the party’s leadership could preach peace but it’s members usually practice violence on the ground especially during election time.
