The Joice Mujuru led People’s Rainbow Coalition (PRC) said that it will lobby Sadc and African Union member countries to order the Zanu PF-led government to create a level political playing field ahead of next year’s general elections.
People’s Democratic Party (PDP) secretary-general Gorden Moyo told Southern Eye that the People’s Rainbow Coalition will lobby countries in the SADC and AU region to ensure electoral reforms. Said Moyo:
PRC resolved to engage the former liberation movements in the African sub-region with a view of reconnecting ideologically with these fraternal parties most of whom are now embarrassed to be associated with the illegitimate Zanu PF government. PRC tasked Ambassador John Mvundura who is the chairman of PRC international and regional committee to lead a high-level delegation on a regional campaign and lobby for an enhanced involvement of Sadc and AU in the next elections in Zimbabwe. PRC is, therefore, calling for an enhanced role of the Organ on Politics, Defence and Security of Sadc and the relevant African Union Commission Organs in the preparations and the actual holding of the next elections in Zimbabwe in order to ensure the integrity of the elections.
