Zimbabwe Opposition Hopes Lecture Series Will Promote Dialogue

The Movement for Democratic Change faction led by Morgan Tsvangirai has started a lecture series it hopes will promote and expanded and elevated national dialogue, said the Zimbabwe opposition party's founding president, Morgan Tsvangirai.

The first event in the New Zimbabwe Lecture Series featured prominent economists John Robertson and Peter Robinson on Tuesday, Tsvangirai said. Future discussions will look at the national constitution, the land issue, health, arts and governance.

He said his opposition grouping hopes Zimbabweans from all walks of life – and of all political persuasions – will join in the dialogue around the lecture series.

Tsvangirai told reporter Blessing Zulu of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe that the results of the first lecture in the series were promising.
