Farewell Tsvangirai

EDITOR — The Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ) joins the entire Zimbabwean populace in celebrating the life of the mainstream MDC president Morgan Tsvangirai.

We are saddened as a union to lose such selfless and iconic political figure who fought for justice, rule of law and a prosperous Zimbabwe.

Broadly, Tsvangirai must be credited for fighting against a one-party state in the late 80s. A struggle in which he shared the trenches with student leaders.

In our sector, he passionately condemned political victimisation of rural teachers. A battle which culminated in the launch of our safe schools campaign.

Tsvangirai became one of the strategic partners in our struggle to restore teacher legacy. The man represented a humble, servant leadership, a new order and a yardstick of democracy.

As we join the nation in mourning the gallant son of democracy, we pray for the restoration and continuity of his vision to see a democratic Zimbabwe where every citizen is presented with an equal opportunity to prosperity. 

Our affection with Tsvangirai can be traced from the pledge he made in creating the equalisation fund for rural teachers. We partnered with the man in calling and campaigning for the safe schools.

We call for unity among members of the MDC Alliance family for that will be the respect befitting a man of his stature.

Now with the new president, is he going to raise the ZIM$ to 1:1 with the USA? Is there a date yet?
