Tsvangirai’s state of nation address

Morgan Tsvangirai, the Movement for Democratic Change President, will finally present his state of the nation address today (24 January) at a local hotel, after deferring it to honour the burial of President Robert Mugabe’s sister, Bridget.

The event was initially penciled for Tuesday, but the MDC made a last ditch decision to postpone it, as it coincided with the burial of Bridget who died last Sunday after spending more than three years in a comma.

The party, in a statement, announced that the address would be held at a Harare Crowne Plaza at 5pm.

“The state of the nation address is meant to unpack the problems facing the country and proffer solutions on the way forward in light of the magnitude of the economic problems facing the people of Zimbabwe,” said MDC-T in a statement.

The media, diplomats, civic society, industry representatives, students and the labour movement are expected to attend the event.

Zimbabwe is currently saddled with a worsening economy marked by company closures, a poorly performing fiscus, inadequate social service delivery, power cuts and critical food insecurity.
