MDC spokesman, Douglas Mwonzora, told journalists in the Harare Press Club this week that the party had it all worked out.
“Firstly, we are sure about the support we command, and we measured this in a scientific manner. We have held rallies throughout the country and we have attracted crowds that no other person in this country would dream of. President Mugabe will not address a crowd as big as the size of the crowd that the PM addressed in Sakubva stadium.”
Mwonzora said attempts by the “military junta” to stifle the PM’s rallies were testament to the fear that has gripped the establishment over the prospects of losing a free and fair ballot.
“When you see police officers trying to slow down the PM, it’s an acknowledgement that there is a voter force. So, we are very happy about the numerical strength which we have. We have elaborate structures in this country. We do not have to use state machinery in order to organise.”
Mwonzora said the MDC would hammer Zanu (PF), and all the smaller parties, if conditions for a free ballot were put in place.
“Zanu (PF) is not interested in a free and fair election,” Mwonzora said. “We are having these problems because Zanu (PF) is afraid of free and fair elections. In fact, Zanu (PF) has no structures, no meaningful structures in the country, and they have resorted to the use of state structures, the army, the CIO, the police, and so on to prop up its waning fortunes.”
The MDC spokesman said there was national consensus to overthrow Zanu (PF) through a free vote.Post published in: News
