Movement for Democratic Change leader Morgan Tsvangirai today concluded his three-day tour of Mashonaland Central and moves to President Robert Mugabe’s home province, Mashonaland West, tomorrow.
His party did not say where his three-day tour of the province will kick off but this is the final leg of his nation-wide tour which began in Matebeleland.
In his address to students at Bindura University today, Tsvangirai urged them to determine their own future by voting and making the right choice in the next election.
He said the future belonged to the young people and they must define, defend and secure that future by participating in the politics of their country.
“The young people risk being a lost generation unless and until they, grab the opportunity in 2018 to sculpt a sustainable future for themselves,” he said.
Tsvangirai is likely to contest Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front Robert Mugabe in next year’s elections though there are fears about Mugabe’s health.
Mugabe is currently in Singapore for a medical check-up.
There has been speculation that Mugabe might not make it to next year’s elections because he will either have died or will be incapacitated.
A little known prophet from Kariba says Mugabe will die on 17 October this year. He was arrested and is currently on remand.
Former ZANU-PF youth leader Godfrey Tsenengamu, also on remand, has demanded that Mugabe must step down to give way to his deputy Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Mugabe insists he is fit to stand for election and is not going to groom anyone to succeed him.
Tsvangirai was also diagnosed with cancer last year.
