The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) led by Morgan Tsvangirai says it has come up with a four-year plan that will guide it till 2018 when the country goes to elections.

Party secretary general Douglas Mwonzora told VOA Studio 7 their national executive committee met in Harare for three days until Sunday and agreed on an operational framework for the next four years.

Mwonzora said they have already started the ball rolling on the ground after naming 2015 the year of planning.

He said 2016 has been named the year of building, noting that the party will build and rebuild its support base during that time.

He further said 2017 has been named the year of take-over of power from the ruling Zanu PF and 2018 the year of completion of the plan.

“This is critically important because we want to do things differently. We want to make sure that everything we do we do according to plan,” said Mwonzora.

But political analyst and Zanu PF member Morris Ngwenya said he does not see the opposition party fulfilling any of its plans.

“MDC T is a party of confusion. Do you need a whole year to plan something? So if they are now trying to plan right now what were they doing all along?” asked Mr. Ngwenya.
