MDC to hold 18th anniversary in Kwekwe

HARARE - Morgan Tsvangirai is holding a rally next month marking the 18th anniversary of the establishment of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC).

“Our 18th anniversary celebrations will be held at Mbizo Stadium in Kwekwe on Saturday, October 7, 2017. The theme of our anniversary celebrations is MDC @18: Converging for the People’s Imminent Victory,” MDC spokesperson Obert Gutu said.

“We expect thousands of party cadres to pack Mbizo Stadium to the rafters. The MDC has grown from leaps and bounds.”

The 18th anniversary comes just after Tsvangirai has reunited with his former allies to agree a pre-election pact to challenge President Robert Mugabe’s 37-year hold on power at the polls next year. Welshman Ncube, who led a break-away MDC faction in 2004 and Tendai Biti, who left the main opposition in 2014, and four other smaller parties have inked a pact that would see them fielding parliamentary candidates in some constituencies under the MDC Alliance banner and would support Tsvangirai’s fourth bid for the presidency.

One thing i like about the MDC party is that all the people who are going to throng Mbizo stadium will go there willingly without being forced or threatened unlike those that attend zanu pf gatherings.The MDC supporters actually risk being subjected to various forms of abuse for attending the rally by zanu pf thugs.While MDC may not be a full fledged democratic party though it has made some commendable inroads towards democracy,Zanu pf is miles and miles away from the animal called democracy.Its dictatorship tendencies stinks to high heavens.It is the only worthwhile party to be identified with in Zimbabawe at the moment.
