Mashonaland East Provincial Chairperson, Pinnel Denga, said the council would provide “wise” advice to the national council regarding formulation of policies.
“The guidance council will also put under the microscope all those issues which help keep MDC on the democratic path and alive to its ‘Party of excellence’ brand. Each province seconded two candidates to the guidance council, one female and one male,” he said.
Mashonaland East nominated former Provincial Main Wing Chairperson, Patrick Chabvamuperu, and former Provincial Women Main Wing Chairlady, Viginia Gwena.
“The two are veteran fighters for democracy and their vast democratic political experience would come handy in this regard,” said Denga.
Gwena joined MDC at its inception 1999 and battled it out against Zanu (PF) in her home area, Sadza-Hwedza, where she is an MDC-T local government councillor.
Though she lost limb and property at the hands of Zanu (PF) thugs, she has vowed ever-lasting support for MDC and the struggle for democracy.
“The Guidance Council would go a long way towards helping the party leadership to remain focused and formulate policies which are in line with democratic politics. This would keep the democratic train on track and serve interests of a diversified nation, Zimbabwe.
The development would also distinguish MDC from Zanu (PF) which does not have an advisory board to the aging and ever blundering party politburo”, said Nelson Mahwema of Mudzi West.Post published in: News
