Independence celebrations non-partisan: Zanu PF
…we were not invited, claims MDC
Party spokesperson, Simon Khaya Moyo, said Zimbabweans from all walks of life should come in their numbers and was speaking ahead of the national Independence Day celebrations set for the National Sports Stadium on Thursday.
“It is a very special day for all Zimbabweans, it is not partisan at all and it is vital we celebrate together as one nation,” Khaya Moyo said.
Opposition MDC Alliance spokesperson Jacob Mafume said though his party was not invited for the main event, they will join people from all walks of life in other centers to celebrate the country’s 39th independence.
“We are going to commemorate and cherish the day in our various centers,” he said.
“We believe independence is broader and should be shared by all. We are going to take time to reflect on what kind of independence we need.”
Zimbabwe celebrates 39 years since attaining independence from colonial rule in 1980.
President Emerson Mnangagwa will preside at the main event in Harare while provinces and districts will play host to localized festivities.
