President Designate Emmerson Mnangagwa has implored Zimbabweans to remain patient and avoid any form of revenge against each other.
“While all this is going on, I implore all Zimbabweans to remain patient and peaceful and desist from any form of vengeful retribution,” said Mnangagwa.
In statement to ZBC News, Mnangagwa said vengefulness is not in the spirit of Ubuntu/Unhu which characterises the nature of our people.
“As you are aware, in the last few months leading to this day, the political situation in our country has been quite fluid culminating in the resignation of our former Head of State, His Excellency President Robert Gabriel Mugabe. We are currently working on transitional arrangements which will lead to the dispensation which is to unfold tomorrow,” said Mnangagwa.
The President Designate has urged all Zimbabweans to be exemplary as they work towards the consolidation of unity and prosperity of the nation.
“Let us not therefore allow criminal elements bent on destabilising the peace and tranquility prevailing in our country, by either settling political or social scores outside the ambit of the law,” said Mnangagwa.
In this vein, Mnangagwa implored the citizens of the country to refrain from malicious practices and report any such incidences to the law enforcement agencies for their appropriate legal action.
Mnangagwa also appealed to fellow Zimbabweans to remain disciplined and optimistic whilst processes to drive the nation towards prosperity and development for the benefit of all, are being put in place. ZBC
