MDC SA to raise funds for 2008 polls (21-06-07)

The MDC’s South Africa district is seriously engaged in fundraising activities for the party as part of its preparations for 2008 polls.
“We have seen an influx of young activists in South Africa so through these fundraising activities we would want to help our youths going back

to Zimbabwe to register, especially those who are not at high risk of Mugabe’s atrocities,” said Information and Publicity secretary for Johannesburg district, Giyani Dube.
Sam Shumba an MDC stalwart has welcomed this initiative as part of the process in liberating Zimbabwe once and for all.
“This is a positive move by the Joburg district and I encourage everyone who wants Mugabe to go in the next elections to participate in this fundraising exercise,” he said.
A competition has been set for the end of June as part of the fundraising process. Tickets cost R20 and the more one buys the more chances there are to win either a car, generator and TV and radio sets.
With an estimated three million Zimbabweans in South Africa the party has chances of mobilizing over R20 million.
“The idea is to support every political initiative of the MDC both in Zimbabwe and South Africa and we urge fellow branches throughout South Africa and the entire world to follow suit,” said Dube
The MDC has also a scheduled the rally for mid July which will be addressed by the President, Morgan Tsvangirai, who is expected to report on the outcome of Mbeki-led negotiations and whether the party will participate in the 2008 polls. – Trust Matsilele
