The Country’s main opposition, Movement for Democratic Change appears to have stoked the fires ahead of the Glen View South By election on Saturday.
Speaker after speaker at a rally held in Glen View South yesterday, was optimistic that the party is set to clinch the parliamentary seat.
“A win for Vincent Tsvangirai in this constituency is an indication that Zanu Pf is no longer popular. We are bringing in young people who are energetic, unlike Zanu PF that is recycling old people. On the 7th of September, let us go out and vote for Vincent Tsvangirai, ” said MDC Youth leader Obey Sithole adding that MDC has already clinched the parliamentary seat.
Party bigwigs including its president Nelson Chamisa attended the Rally drum up support for candidate Dalumazi Khumalo.
MDC deputy national chairperson Job Sikhala echoed the above sentiments saying that victory is inevitable.
“Empirical and substantial evidence I gathered points to a victory,” said Job Sikhala .
He also said that Glen View is a territory that belongs to the MDC family
“This area is our territory and I bet that Zanu PF will garner less than 2000 votes,” said Sikhala.
MDC President, NelsonChamisa weighed in saying that the Party supports Vincent Tsvangirai.
The seat fell vacant following the death of MDC-Alliance’s Vimbai Tsvangirai-Java, the daughter of the late MDC founding leader Morgan Tsvangirai, after she succumbed to injuries from a car crash.
Orphard Muchuwe will represent Zanu PF, while MDC will be represented by Vincent Tsvangirai.
Zanu PF is also eying the same seat.
The ruling party has already sunk several boreholes in the area.
Party Political Commissar said Zanu PFis aiming to alleviate Glen View Water woes by drilling a plethora of boreholes.
“Here in Glen View we are going to resuscitate other boreholes which have broken down and drill new ones in strategic points to address the water situation in this area,” he said.
Matemadanda pledged to engage relevant authorities to formalise a settlement called Dare Rechimurenga Housing Cooperative, with more than 800 households, where residents settled five years ago and to facilitate title deeds for the people of Glen View.
