Zanu Pf is ready to accept election results including handing over power to the winner in the event that the party loses the forthcoming elections, Vice President, Kembo Mohadi said.
VP Mohadi, who for the past two months has been conspicuously absent from national functions due to ill health said his party cannot force itself into power since the people had the power to chose their favourite party to lead them.
“Zanu Pf is not the one that has the power, the power lies with people.
"If the people vote us out they would have rejected us. If you lose an election you’d have lost and if you win you would have won. It’s simple as that,” he said.
VP Mohadi said this in an interview with a local publication where he dismissed allegations that the country was being run by the military or “junta.
VP Mohadi said Zanu-PF draws its mandate from the people through the ballot box and would accept any outcome of the polls.
“Zanu-PF is not run by the military and we are not in the barracks.
Of course, President Mnangagwa is a trained soldier, I am a trained soldier and VP (Constantino) Chiwenga is also a trained soldier because that was our generation. We all went to war because it was a requirement then to go and fight, but you can’t then say we are a military government because we have all since retired from the military,” he said.
