MDC opens a Fund raising Networking Club for Zimbabweans in South Africa

Hundreds of Zimbabweans met in Braamfontein on Sunday to share information and debate political issues in Zimbabwe. The Zimbabweans were treated to their indigenous dishes of makuru (tripe), sadza (papa or thick porridge), mashazhari (samp) and maqibi (mopani worms). Aleck Macheso music boomed from the venue, much to the excitement of home sick Zimbab

Two young female Zimbabwe refugees residing at the Methodist Church, thrilled the audience with their Chibhasikoro jive.

The monthly get together Fund raising Network, which kicked off on Sunday with pomp and fanfare, is the brainchild of MDC SA provincial Chairman Austin Moyo.

Moyo said the idea was to get Zimbabweans in South Africa to start sharing notes and to provide a platform for public participation and deliberations. Money raised will go a long way to assist suffering Zimbabweans in South Africa and back home.

Zimbabwe businessmen, supporters of MDC and the leaders from other progressive organizations had a thorough debate on the power sharing deal.The provincial leadership had a mammoth task of explaining the implications of the deal much to the relief of the the attendants who were having difficulties in interpreting the deal.

Attendants cheered and whistled as Chairman Moyo explained that MDC went into a power sharing deal as a laxative to flush out filth nursed by Zanu PF in the government.

Zimbabweans in South Africa are encouraged to participate in the club. To attend one has to buy a ticket for R100. Plans are also afoot to bring the national leadership down hear to answer people’s queries. Contact our MDC offices at (011) 339 6930 to get your ticket for our net networking session.
