Chamisa told the crowd that, since the death of Sally, Mugabe’s leadership style had seriously deteriorated.
“It is a clear indication that Mugabe is getting the wrong advice from his youthful wife. Things were better when Sally was still alive, zvino kana urimambondyire uchirima munda weumwe wako unoita sora”, added Chamisa amid a thunderous applause from the villagers, most of them old men and women.

License community radios – Zanu (PF)
HARARE – A senior ruling Zanu (PF) member Charles Pemhenayi says Zimbabweans should demand to be granted licenses to run community radio stations as provided for under the Broadcasting Services Act (BSA).
Speaking at the official launch of the Kumakomo Community Radio Station (KCRS) in Mutare recently Pemhenayi said the Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe (BAZ) should be taken to task on why it had not issued the licenses in question. He urged Zimbabwean communities to make the right noises and demand for the licenses for community radio stations
The launch of KCRS is part of the intense lobby activities initiated by MISA-Zimbabwe under its Community Radio Initiatives (CRIs) to mobilise communities to demand for the licenses under its Free the Airwaves Campaign aimed at breaking the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Holdings’ monopoly of the airwaves. The CRIs are fast gaining momentum following the launch of Wezhira, Kwelaz and Gweru community radio stations in Masvingo, Kwekwe and Gweru respectively.- MISA
MDC supporters defy Zanu thugs
MAMINA – More than 2,000 MDC supporters congregated at Mamina Growth Point on Saturday, defied a group of Zanu (PF) youths and war veterans who had laid siege to the venue of the rally.
The provincial leadership, led by Chitungwiza MP Fidelis Mhashu and provincial organizing secretary Pinias Mushayavanhu, forged ahead with the rally despite attempts by the ex-combatants and youths to disrupt it.
The rally drew rural supporters from as afar afield as Mhondoro and Ngezi, more than 50 kilometers away, with some of the supporters saying they had woken up at 4 am, before footing to the growth point to listen to their leaders.
There was a heavy police presence. When speakers slammed the directive instructing police officers to start paying fares while traveling on public transport even on official duty, police officers could seen clapping in solidarity.
Mhashu, who is also the MDC shadow Education minister, said the huge dropout of children in primary, secondary and tertiary institutions gravely worried him.
The MDC will contest all 21 seats in the district election. The Chitungwiza provincial chairperson, Lillian Mashumba, urged women to ensure that each and every member of their family who is eligible to vote had registered to do so. She said women had born the brunt of Mugabe’s misrule. – Gift Phiri
