MDC appeals for congress funds


217;s main opposition political party, the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) says it is appealing for financial support in order to hold its congress on 17-19 March.

Addressing a sizeable crowd of Zimbabweans living abroad in Johannesburg on Saturday, MDC National Chairman, Isaac Matongo, said his party had no money.

He told the gathering that the MDC was targeting the Zimbabweans living abroad, especially in South Africa, the United Kingdom and United States of America.

“Ladies and gentlemen, our congress is being held between March 17-19, 2006 in Harare, so we are appealing for financial support. Remember that we don’t have any funding from abroad nor from inside the country,” said Matongo.

The pro-Senate faction recently received Z$8 billion from the government which was handed over just in time to finance its congress.

Speaking at the same ceremony was Thokozani Khupe, MP for Makokoba, who insisted that the MDC supporters in South Africa were not doing much for the party, arguing that their focus was on divisions. – CAJ News
