President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s larger-than life campaign posters and billboards recently unveiled by Zanu-PF are proving to be a major attraction to potential voters with some taking time to for "selfies" in front of the pictures.
The campaign posters are so huge that they almost cover two sides of the 12-storey Zanu-PF headquarters building. Similar posters have been put at Throgmorton Building in Harare’s central business district where have they literally dwarfed all other campaign posters from other political posters.
In an interview, Zanu-PF spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo said the ruling party will be spreading the "larger-than-life" campaign billboards and posters to other towns and areas across the country.
“We shall be spreading the billboards all over the country as we go on with our campaign,” he said.
Khaya Moyo said the gigantic billboards symbolise the party’s electoral strength and dominance.
“We are not a small a party. We are a revolutionary party, a mass party so why should we go for small billboards?" he said.
The banners have induced colour and a certain vibe on city walls and buildings in a way that a passer-by can’t miss them.
These gigantic banners are running run under the theme #EDHasMyVote and contain the face of the party’s First Secretary and President of Zimbabwe Emmerson Mnangagwa.
The posters have become a point of discussion and argument with various people expressing concern particularly on the money used by the party to put up these gigantic campaign banners.
But Khaya Moyo simply responded saying, "We know what we are doing”.
