ZANU PF’s long-serving member, Jimayi Muduvuri, has implored South Africans to vote for the ruling African National Congress (ANC) party to ward off Western imperialism allegedly being advanced by the opposition.

The neighbouring country is set to hold its hotly-contested general election on May 29, with the ruling party optimistic about winning the polls.

Muduvuri said South Africans should not vote for the opposition, as doing so would betray the liberation struggle endured by Pan-Africanists.

“South Africans and the rest of Africa must desist from the mentality of trying to remove the former liberation movements, as it would be a betrayal of the selflessness of our founding fathers,” he told Digital Telegraph.

“For example, the ANC is the party that ushered in independence in South Africa in 1994. Therefore, we cannot have the electorate, 30 years later, wanting to replace that liberation party with a Western opposition party. It means they no longer value how Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in prison for our neighbouring country to gain independence.”

Muduvuri said Africans should honor those who selflessly sacrificed themselves by continuing to vote for former liberation parties.

“As black people, as Africans, we must not forget where we came from. We were liberated. I have constructed a pan-African hospital with portraits of pan-Africans like the late Oliver Tambo, Nelson Mandela, Robert Mugabe, Julius Nyerere, Kenneth Kaunda, Samora Machel, and others,” he said.

“The reason why I did that is because as young Africans, we were liberated, and we must not forget where we came from. This was not an easy thing; a lot of bloodshed and sacrifices were made for us to be where we are today. Those late pan-Africanists did an amazing job, and they handed over the baton to the likes of our current President Emmerson Mnangagwa, Cyril Ramaphosa, Filipe Nyusi, and others.

We must honour the sacrifices made by our forefathers by voting for former liberation parties and not the opposition. Voting for opposition parties like the DA in South Africa will advance Western ideology, and imperialism, and brainwash our rich African culture,” he further told Digital Telegraph Zw.

Muduvuri added that the future of Africa was safe and bright, as former liberation parties would continue implementing policies that improve the livelihoods of ordinary people.

“Twenty years from now, Africa will be a developed continent. It’s a process led by former liberation movements. For example, here in Zimbabwe, Mnangagwa and ZANU PF have embarked on massive infrastructure and economic development because it’s a party that places Zimbabweans at the centre,” he said.

“This is also true for South Africa and other former liberation movements. They prioritize their citizens above everything, not opposition parties. As Africans, we must not allow our culture to be undermined and forget the sacrifices made by former liberation parties to bring us to where we are today.”
