Zanu PF has sent a fawning birthday message to its “forgiving” leader and State President Emmerson Mnangagwa who turns 79 this Wednesday.
In its message, Zanu PF described Mnangagwa as someone who exudes “the virtues of Endurance, Bravery, Servant Leadership, Patriotism, Loyalty, Focus and Forgiving”.
Since becoming President 2017, Mnangagwa has chosen to keep his birthday a rather low-key event.
This is different from his predecessor Robert Mugabe who would convene large and often expensive gatherings annually to celebrate his birthday.
FULL BIRTHDAY MESSAGE BY ZANU PF
The Zimbabwe African National Union Patriotic Front (Zanu PF) and its entire Leadership and Membership joins the First Family, Government, Family Members and Friends in congratulating his Excellency, the President and First Secretary of the party Cde Dr. Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa on the Occasion of his 79th Birthday.
Indeed, 79 years ago, a Visionary, Gallant and Patriotic Leader was born to a peasant family whose resistance to the vagaries of colonial dispossession and oppression left indelible footprints in Zimbabwe and inspired a son who would later on endure his boyhood in the wilderness, toiling with fellow brave youthful compatriots in the Struggle for Our Independence. Freedom, Right to Self Determination and Emancipation. As we mark Your Birthday Your Excellency, we learn from your long story, the virtues of Endurance, Bravery, Servant Leadership, Patriotism, Loyalty, Focus and Forgiving.
We wish you a special one, as you lead us towards Vision-2030 through your transformative and people centered policies that continue to change our people’s lives through productivity and productivity.
Once again happy Birthday Shumba Chikara. May God Bless You and Your Family abundantly.
