Zimbabwe Opposition Faction Leader Calls For Unity Against Ruling Party

Zimbabwe's opposition Movement for Democratic Faction led by Arthur Mutambara, celebrated a victory in Umzingwane, Matebeleland South, Sunday, where it's candidate Elliot Dube, was elected councilor for Ward 12.

Top party officials including Mutambara, deputy president Gibson Sibanda and National Organizing Secretary Esoph Mdlongwa, attended the rally at the Kumbudzi Business Center.

Deputy party spokesman and Member of Parliament for Nkayi, Abednico Bhebhe, told Studio 7 that they had to move the rally from Saturday to Sunday, because at the last minute, police refused to grant them permission to hold the rally.

Bhebhe told reporter Sithandekile Mhlanga of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe, that Mutambara said both MDC factions would unite during elections, so as to put up a stronger front against the ruling ZANU PF party.
