Vice President Kembo Mohadi has implored traditional leaders in Mashonaland Central province to help government to quell emergent protests in the county by preaching peace in their communities.
Speaking at a peace and conflict resolution meeting with chiefs in Mazowe yesterday, Mohadi said the country had become ungovernable and needed a collective approach in dealing with conflicts.
“The country has become ungovernable as you all witnessed in August last year soon after elections. There were violent protests and this year in January, there were protests in urban centres, making the country ungovernable,” he said.
“I have oversight on the National Peace and Reconciliation Commission (NPRC) and I chair the Cabinet committee on peace. However, I have chosen to consult our traditional leaders in order to learn from their indigenous knowledge for this country to be governable.”
Mohadi urged chiefs to preach the “gospel of peace” in their communities for individuals and families to remain united.
