retary for the South Africa province, Rodgers Mudarikwa, said preparations were at an advanced stage with 300 delegates from the 12 branches in the country expected to attend.
“We have also invited some friendly diplomatic missions based in South Africa and some non-governmental organisations (NGOs), the media and church leaders, who support the rule of law and fight for democratic values in Zimbabwe,” said Mudarikwa.
Veteran MDC activist and Zimbabwe Political Victims Association (ZIPOVA) Welfare Officer, Joshua-Mambo Rusere, said the current interim executive was mobilising both people and resources for Zimbabweans living in the diaspora.
“One thing that must not be ignored is that more than three million Zimbabweans live in South Africa, and they need to have a voice in what is happening in their country,” he said.
