Tsvangirai to Address 'Mega Rally' at Zimbabwe Grounds

Morgan Tsvangirai is expected to address a big rally in Harare

Former Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai is on Saturday expected to address what the party says is a “mega-rally” at Zimbabwe Grounds, the ceremonial home of people power in Highfield, Harare.

In a statement, the parry said, “… The big Harare bash comes in the context of a biting national crisis at a time the party in the seat of government has become radarless and clueless on how to solve the problems facing the people. The rally also comes against the prospect of the imminent introduction of infamous bond-notes; which in reality is the re-introduction of the Zimdollar through the back-door.”

The MDC-T said in his keynote message, Tsvangirai is set to talk about the national crisis, give an update on the coalition of opposition parties ahead of 2018 “as well as pay tribute to the resilience of the suffering people of Zimbabwe.

“Given the sickening poverty around the country, the people can only remember with nostalgia the times of good economic fortune with the MDC’s competent hand on the wheels of government during the era of the inclusive government.”

The MDC-T further noted that the party president is also expected to brief the people on the current fight for electoral reforms as well as publicly deliver a special message to President Robert Mugabe on what he can do in the current dire circumstances “if he truly loves this country and its people.”

The MDC-T was once in the government of national unity between 2009 and 2013, which comprised Zanu PF and the MDC led by Professor Welshman Ncube.
