In an interview with The Herald yesterday, MDC Alliance spokesman Professor Welshman Ncube said they were running on a shoe-string budget that did not allow them to fund political advertisements on radio and television.

He said the coalition’s main priority is to mobilise resources for polling agents. Said Ncube:

We are living on a hand to mouth budget, and this is a daily thing. As of now no one has contributed towards that. But we have done posters and billboards and we will continue to appeal for donations. There is a finance committee headed by (Mr) Tendai Biti, which is working 24×7 to mobilise resources. Our priority at the moment is on polling agents. We have to train them so that they know what is required of them when they are deployed at polling stations. We are also looking for money so that we are able to pay them small allowances.

In a tweet, Deputy national treasurer for the Chamisa led MDC-T faction Charlton Hwende appealed for funding to put up paid adverts on radio and television.
