Today marks 33 years since the signing of the Unity Accord and the coming together of the two revolutionary parties in 1987.
Decades have passed since that historic event of our Unity Accord.However,its conceptualization must now go beyond narrow interpretation.
Therefore today as we remember and celebrate Unity Day,let us re-commit ourselves to the important virtues that bind us as a people and equally incorporate the importance of our Unity within the transformative national economic agenda.
Peace-building, conflict-resolution and management must remain a binding feature of our national development agenda.
Where there are differences, we must aim to settle and resolve them through dialogue and engagement.
Further guided by our national Constitution, heritage and traditional value systems; toxic politics and divisive tendencies have no room in our society. By and large, we are a peaceful people and nation.
The common goal for every Zimbabwean is to continue strengthening the unitary State that is Zimbabwe and which is home to multitude cultures, all co-existing in harmony under one flag and one national anthem.
Individually and collectively, we bear the responsibility to bequeath present and future generations, an economically developed, modern and prosperous country.
