Villagers pledge support for Mugabe: He must relax because we will vote for him in 2018 elections


In development indicating some rural communities are ostracized from the broader society, villagers in Chivasa, Gutu are oblivious of the fact that former President Robert Mugabe is no longer in power.

Although there are various social media platforms that disseminate information, the villagers do not have access to Facebook and WhatsApp.

To worsen matters, the villagers do not own radio and television sets.

Speaking at a meeting in Chivasa Village, Gutu District on Tuesday morning the villagers said they would vote for Mugabe in the 2018 elections.

During the meeting, which was attended by ZimEye reporters, the villagers professed ignorance of the fact that Mugabe resigned last month.

“We want to assure President Mugabe that as we go to 2018 elections he must relax because we will all vote for him. He is a man of the people and we will continue to support him,” said Chivasa Village Kraal Head Mapanga Chivasa.

The villagers at the meeting also expressed utter amazement when they learnt that Mugabe was no longer in power.
