Zanu-PF Secretary for the Youth Affairs Cde Pupurai Togarepi has said President Mugabe’s 91st birthday celebrations held in Victoria Falls at the weekend were a resounding success and thanked him and the First Family for finding time to celebrate the occasion with the nation.

Cde Togarepi also thanked the President for tackling issues affecting youths during his address to the over 20 000 people who attended the main event on Saturday.

“We would want to thank the President and the First Family for finding time to come and celebrate with us,” he said. “We suggested the date for the celebrations and the President never had any problems and accepted it.

“We also thank him for addressing on various issues affecting youths in his speech, especially on the National Youth Service training programme, that it would be revived and Government was working on it.

“President Mugabe also encouraged youths to be diligent and always be ready to defend their party Zanu-PF and the country and also not to be afraid to name and shame all the corrupt people that are destroying the country. This will strengthen us as we go forward in building our nation.”

Cde Togarepi expressed gratitude to the Zanu-PF Youth League executive for working tirelessly to ensure that all the logistical arrangements were in place for the celebrations.

“I would also like to thank the Youth League executive for working round the clock to ensure that everything was in place and I am happy that all the guests were well fed and that for the first time everyone also managed to get a piece of cake,” Cde Togarepi said.

This year’s 21st Movement Celebrations were held under the theme, “Celebrating the birth of Gushungo, the icon of Zimbabwe’s revolution and champion of youth empowerment” and also coincided with the 29th anniversary of 21st February Movement.
