Zambia’s PF backs Mugabe, says got name from Zanu-PF

 Patriotic Front secretary general Wynter Kabimba has called on Western countries to unconditionally lift sanctions they imposed on Zimbabwe.

And Kabimba has revealed that his party derived its name from Zanu-PF of Zimbabwe.

Kabimba was speaking in Bulawayo Thursday at the Zanu-PF 12th Annual National People’s Conference where he and other representatives of political parties endorsed the candidature of Robert Mugabe.

And Zambia’s PF has replaced UNIP at the meeting and is pretending to be an Independence liberation movement.

“We believe Zimbabweans cannot hold peaceful polls with the albatross of sanctions on their neck. We call on those that have imposed the sanctions to remove them unconditionally. No country in the world has the right to determine the course of history for another country,” Kabmba told delegates.

He continued: “Apart from the fact that our party derived its name from Zanu-PF, we have similar policies and a history of fighting colonisation during the era of the Federation.”

The Liberation movements represented are South Africa’s African National Congress (ANC), Mozambique’s Frelimo, the Botswana Democratic Party (BDP), Angola’s MPLA, Swapo’s Namibia and Tanzania’s Chama Cha Mapinduzi.

Zambia’s UNIP has been replaced by PF.

In his solidarity message yesterday, ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe, said his party was willing to share strategies with Zanu-PF to ensure the party romped to victory in the forthcoming general elections.

“It is critical for the liberation movements to continue sharing experiences and exchange ideas from time to time so that we win elections. If we want to share experiences on campaigning and messaging during elections, we must do so well ahead of the elections so that the parties involved can have time to adjust the experiences to their own strategies,” he said.

Frelimo’s secretary for external relations, Dr Xarzanda Selemame Cera, said her party will back Zanu-PF in the forthcoming elections as the two movements shared a strong bond.
