Let’s Meet In The Streets, MDC Dares Mnangagwa

The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) has vowed to proceed with its planned national demonstration despite government threats to crush any anti-establishment protests.

Minister of Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage, Cain Mathema recently described MDC President Nelson Chamisa’s threats to unleash his supporters on to the streets as treasonous.

In an interview with 263Chat today, MDC National Chairperson and Bulawayo senator, Thabitha Khumalo said the opposition was not deterred by government threats, charging that killing people has never been a way of dealing with citizen disgruntlement.

“We will meet them on the streets. We are mandate driven and the people of Zimbabwe are demanding the streets and the streets we will go. They can kill but they cannot kill all of us. And they cannot stop change whose time has come.

“As far as I am concerned, Mr Mnangagwa is illegitimate. He did not win this election and we are saying he must hand over the power to President Chamisa because he is the one who won the election,” Khumalo said.

Chamisa has embarked on a national tour meeting his party supporters under the auspice of ‘Thank You Rallies’ seeking to map the way forward following what he described as a disputed election outcome.

Meanwhile, the MDC has dismissed reports that Bulawayo deputy mayor Tinashe Kambarami who retained the post following misunderstandings with party structures, has been expelled from the party.

“No one has been fired, nobody can be expelled from the party without the approval of the National Disciplinary Committee or National Council. So it is not legal,” said Mwonzora.
