The MDC Today 29 October 2010

morgan_pmPresident Morgan Tsvangirai (Pictured) will on Saturday lead the MDC leadership to Empress Mine Business Centre in Zhombe, Midlands North province, for the former MDC national spokesperson, Learmore Jongwes memorial rally who died in prison on 24 October 2002.

Thousands of MDC supporters from across the country are expected to attend the memorial rally at the Empress Mine. Jongwe was buried at Samambwa Village in Zhombe. The rally will is expected to start at 10 am. President Tsvangirai has urged the Harare residents to take part in the Constitution making process that resumes in the capital city this weekend after being abandoned in September due to violence. The president was speaking before hundreds of MDC supporters at an MDC consultative meeting at Budiriro Community in Harare on Thursday evening.

The meetings which were launched two weeks ago at Mabvuku Hall in Harare, are meant to consult the people of Zimbabwe on the performance of the inclusive government, the flagrant disregard of the Global Political Agreement (GPA) by Zanu PF and Robert Mugabe, the Constitution making process and the next years election.

He said the Constitution making process has been marred by violence, intimidation, bussing in of Zanu PF supporters and the disruption of some of these meetings especially in the rural areas and this has seriously tainted the whole process. Meanwhile, the trial of Pishai Muchauraya, Makoni South MP, who is facing false charges of undermining the President, was postponed to 1 December, 2010 at the Murambinda magistrate court after the state failed to bring any witnesses. Muchauraya is alleged to have told MDC supporters at a rally in 2006 that Mugabe was too old and suffered from diarrhoea.
