Zanu PF youth to commemorate Mnangagwa’s escape

Harare-The ruling Zanu PF Manicaland youth league will on Saturday march from Government complex to Forbes Border Post in commemoration of their party leader, President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s escape following his dismissal from the Mugabe government last year.

Zanu PF youth league chairperson for Manicaland Province, Tawanda Mukodza said through the blessing of the party’s provincial offices, the youth league will engage in the belated march as tribute to their leader.

“The march is a brainchild of the youth league where we will be commemorating the escape made by his Excellency, last year through the Forbes Border post.

“So we are inviting everyone to come in support of this day, which is belated anyway as the president left the country on the 8th of November but due to other commitments, we were unable to commemorate on the actual day,” said Mukodza.

After his hasty but highly dramatic dismissal from both Government and party, Mnangagwa left Zimbabwe through the Forbes Border post on his way to South Africa where he sought asylum.

Mnangagwa then claimed the Mugabe administration was baying for his blood. Later on he claimed he would be back in two weeks and true to his word he was back and took over the Presidency with the help of the military.
