Zimbabwe: Youths Get Party Regalia

The Zanu-PF national youth affairs department yesterday presented more than 100 items of party regalia to youth supporters in Harare yesterday. Speaking on behalf of Zanu-PF national political commissar Cde Webster Shamu, the commissariat principal director Retired Air Marshall Henry Muchena said it was important for youths to be involved in national affairs.

He said the regalia was not authority for youths to engage in violence under the guise of patriotism. Rtd Air Marshal Muchena said the regalia was meant to identify youths as a collective body sharing a common vision.

"Anyone using regalia to commit crime in the name of Zanu-PF will be arrested and sent to prison," he said.

He called on party supporters to exercise discipline and demonstrate compasion towards all Zimbabweans in spite of their political affiliation.
