Revealed: Mugabe’s secret plan to create his own version of the Hitler Youth:
Hitler had the Hitler Youth. Mao had his Red Guards. Robert Mugabe has the 21st February Movement - a youth organisation now to be revamped, indoctrinated and let loose in our streets and schools.
The 21st February Movement - it's Mugabe's birthday - began life in 1986 as a benign boy scout-type organisation. Now it is to become a fanatical corps of uniformed kids, all dedicated and devoted to their President and their Party.
A recent meeting of Zanu-PF's governing body agreed to militarise and politicise the 21st February Movement, starting with pre-school toddlers. The programme, which will be compulsory for all children, is titled, with surprising frankness, 'Operation Catch Them Young'.
I have been shown the minutes of the meeting in which the members - senior Zanu-PF officials - agreed to this regimentation of all school children in order to "safeguard our sovereignty".
The minutes read: "Plans to build the Party Ideological School should be expedited to ensure consistence in inculcating the ideology of the Party in instilling values and norms and to institutionalise these values and norms from pre-school level."
Take that tortured sentence apart, word by word, and it means one thing: brainwashing.
Plans include dressing even the smallest children in green uniforms and teaching them to march and chant Zanu-PF slogans. The aim is to have fanatical kids as young as four screaming their loyalty to Mugabe in unison.
This same meeting also agreed plans to clamp down on dissent among university students. "Politically correct and educated cadres within the Party should be appointed to administer universities to safeguard the interests of Zanu-PF, its beliefs, values and norms," the minutes recorded.
It also discussed the lack of Zanu-PF young women activists, and had an answer to that problem too. "We resolve to mobilise all young women to form and join the Zanu-PF Young Women's League."
This planned brainwashing of all our young people clearly has many purposes, but one purpose in particular the Politburo was happy to set down and spell out in the official minutes. "The President," it recorded, "should be President for Life."
