He made the remarks at the opening of the MDC national organising workshop. The leadership of the 12 MDC provinces is attending the workshop.

“We should gear for the election. This means the leadership has to find each other to create unity of purpose. Without this, our desired goals will not be achieved,” he said.

However, Moyo said before the elections are held the MDC would first ensure that there is an enactment of a new Constitution, a new voters’ roll, legislative, electoral and media reforms. Zimbabwe also needs to comply with SADC electoral guidelines on free and fair elections and put in place mechanisms to make sure that violence will not be a factor in the next elections.

Hon. Moyo called on the provincial leadership to come up with a consolidated work plan that will guide the party ahead of the coming elections.

“I know that the provinces have particular disparities which have to be dealt with differently and we have to come up with a plan that strengthens the party as the weakness of one province is the weakness of the party as a whole,” he said.

He urged the provincial leadership to remain disciplined and focused in order to take the people of Zimbabwe to Canaan, the promised.

“In any serious organisation, there is need for serious, disciplined and focused conduct. The behaviour of leaders, in whatever capacity, affects the MDC brand and I therefore, urge you to lead by example,” he said.
