President: 🔈’Our land is for Zimbabweans
Zimbabweans should safeguard the country’s independence and never allow foreigners to control their land again, President Mnangagwa has said. The Head of State and Government said a lot of blood was spilled for Zimbabwe to be independent, hence the need to cherish the freedom.
He made the remarks after viewing a local movie, “Chinhoyi 7” at Ster Kinekor, Borrowdale, in Harare yesterday. The film is based on the 1966 Chinhoyi Battle, where the first shots of the Second Chimurenga were fired.
Yesterday’s private viewing was attended by Vice President Dr Constantino Chiwenga, Cabinet Ministers and service chiefs. It also came as Zimbabwe celebrates 38 years of independence today.
“Many of our comrades, brothers and sisters perished in this war, but in the end the spilling of blood of our sisters and brothers brought us this independence,” President Mnangagwa said.
“We should cherish, defend it. Never again should we allow our land to be occupied by foreigners. The burden of defending our land, passing on the patriotism in our blood is upon us to pass on to generations to come.”
