Tsvangirai descends on Norton

HARARE - Opposistion leader Morgan Tsvangirai will tomorrow address a rally in Norton meant to thank constituents for voting against Zanu PF in the recent by-elections.

Tsvangirai’s visit to Norton comes after independent candidate Temba Mliswa defeated Zanu PF candidate Ronald Chindedza in hotly-contested by-election.

In a statement, Tsvangirai’s spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka said the MDC leader will be in Norton to thank the people for defying all odds and teaching the Zanu PF “dictatorship” a lesson.

“...Tsvangirai will on Saturday head to Norton to thank the people for making a loud national statement against Zanu PF even in an unfair election riven with vote-buying and violence,” Tamborinyoka said.

“Notwithstanding the rigged Norton poll, president Tsvangirai will be in the town. The leopard has not changed its spots in terms of holding free and fair elections, but the MDC leader will thank the people for braving the heavy odds staked against their free expression.”

According to Tamborinyoka, the MDC leader will explain in detail the electoral reforms that should be instituted to pave the way for the free expression of the people through the ballot.

“He will also urge all the people to register to vote when the exercise is opened afresh early next year as promised by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec).

“The MDC and other political parties under the banner of the National Election Reform Agenda are not participating in elections until and unless comprehensive electoral reforms are implemented in the country.”

Recently, Mliswa said a grand opposition coalition led by the indomitable Tsvangirai and including war veterans will beat President Robert Mugabe and his warring Zanu PF hands down in the eagerly-anticipated 2018 national elections.

Tamborinyoka said the MDC was watching with interest other forthcoming by-elections in Bikita West and Chimanimani in order to test the sincerity of Zec in managing free and fair polls in the country.
