Thousands of Zanu-PF supporters are expected to converge at the Harare International Airport today to welcome President Mugabe from New York where he addressed the 69th Session of the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday.

In a statement yesterday, Zanu-PF Harare Province called upon all party supporters to come in their numbers to give a thunderous welcome to the President.

The province said transport to and from Harare International Airport would be available at the usual pick up points.

“Zanu-PF Harare province members from the main wing, women and youth leagues will all welcome His Excellency The President and First Secretary of Zanu-PF, Commander in Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces Cde Robert Gabriel Mugabe from his successful trip to the 69th session of the UN General Assembly in New York at Harare International Airport,” read the statement.

The revolutionary party’s provincial youth executive weighed in, urging all party youths to be at the Harare International Airport to welcome the President.

Provincial youth chairperson Cde Godwin Gomwe said President Mugabe was a true revolutionary and an icon whom every other youth should emulate.

“We are all inspired by our Head of State and Government not only as a leader, but as an African icon and therefore we should join each other to celebrate his arrival tomorrow,” he said.

“As the Zanu-PF Harare province Youth League chairman, I would like to encourage all youths in Harare and Zanu-PF members at large to go to the Harare International Airport tomorrow (today) to welcome His Excellency President Mugabe who will be arriving from New York, where he is attending the 69th session of the United Nations General Assembly meeting.”

Cde Gomwe said it was unfortunate that President Mugabe’s return was coinciding with embarrassing reports that some Members of Parliament were supping with the country’s enemies to access donor aid.

“It is saddening and quite disgracing that our President will return home during a period when a dozen MPs have been exposed as companions of the Westerners,” he said.

Cde Gomwe said the MPs had failed to behave honourably.

“These MPs are supposed to be honourable as their titles refer, but have succeeded in disgracing our beloved nation in a bid to seek the so-called international aid,” he said.

“Let us not follow these despicable actions, but unite in purpose, solidarity and in celebration of the arrival of our President.”

In his address to the General Assembly, President Mugabe rapped Western alliance for its deafening silence over Israeli atrocities in Gaza where over 2 200, mostly unarmed men, women and children were killed in a four week bombardment. President Mugabe did not echo the platitudes of Western leaders who pontificated about the “war on terror” and the situation in Iraq and Syria where US created and sponsored groups have turned weapons against their settler benefactors .

He drew the world’s attention to the tragedy in Gaza which the western leaders skirted like a plague as they bristled about Al-Qaeda.
