Traditional leaders are also being abused to make them operate as de facto Zanu PF political commissars in their respective areas of jurisdiction. The MDC has always respected traditional leaders and we have always held them in very high esteem. We would like to call upon Zanu PF to leave our traditional leaders alone so that they can continue to peacefully carry out their duties as the custodians of our cultural traditions and values.
We will continue to call for the opening up of the country’s State –owned print and electronic media to all political players; in tandem with the dictates of the supreme law of the land. As such, we expect Zimpapers and the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation to immediately stop to operate as if they are Zanu PF’ sole and exclusive propaganda mouthpieces.
The MDC is definitely going to resoundingly win the forthcoming harmonised elections and we call upon all patriotic and eligible Zimbabweans who have not yet registered to vote to turn up and register to vote during the on – going biometric voter registration blitz. The people’s victory is guaranteed.
