WASHINGTON DC —
Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) leader Welshman Ncube says he is confident that he will trounce his bitter rivals, President Robert Mugabe and Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, in the forthcoming general election.
Ncube says his party considers the July 31 poll as a watershed election since it is being held against the background of a troubled unity government which, despite some serious setbacks, managed to craft the country’s new constitution.
“The last four years have seen an attempt by the inclusive government to stabilize the economy and begin to grow it, to reintroduce peace into the country, to engage in governance reform and we brought in a new constitution and some electoral reforms,” says Ncube.
In this fourth edition of a five-part election series on presidential candidates, VOA Studio 7’s Blessing Zulu talks to Ncube about his State House ambitions and related issues.
