…bans involving wives of leaders in slogans
It seems Zanu PF still fears the ghost of Grace Mugabe and the party has since banned slogans praising wives of leaders, with leaders saying they do not wish to reincarnate the Grace Mugabe persona.
Slogans like, 'Pamberi naDoctor Grace Mugabe', 'Pamberi naMai vanotichengetera Baba', 'Munhu wese kuna Amai' and 'Pane mwana ndipo pana Amai' had become common before the fall of former president Robert Mugabe in November last year.
The new resolutions are clearly targeted at new President Emmerson Mnangagwa's wife, Auxillia, who is already under the spotlight for what critics say are her attention-seeking antics.
Zanu PF national deputy political commissar Omega Hungwe recently said the commissariat was going to sit down and design an official code of slogans which will be communicated to all provinces.
"Iyo nyaya yemaslogan tinoda kutoigarira pasi secommissariat. Kuhondo vanhu vakanga vakadzidziswa slogan kuti ndiyo yatinoteedzera haikona dzanga dzakuitika idzi.
"Tiri kutouya nayo and kana yauya mapolitburo members motibetsera. Hakuna mukadzi wemutungamiriri anonzi pamberi naye. Uri aniko iwe?" asked Hungwe.politics
