MDC Responds To Zanu-PF Criticism Of Chamisa Inauguration, Demands Apology, Retraction

The Nelson Chamisa led MDC has responded to Zanu-PF’s statement criticising the inauguration of the opposition party leader during the 19th anniversary celebrations held at Gwanzura Stadium on Saturday.

In a statement issued by party spokesperson Jacob Mafume, MDC said the statement issued by Zanu-PF borders on malice and is bent on inciting violence. MDC says the statement is an attempt by Zanu-Pf to cover up for its electoral theft. The opposition party demands an apology from Zanu-PF spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo and a retraction of the statement. We publish part of the MDC statement below:

The MDC notes with concern a statement from ZANU PF through its spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo, we find the statement to be desperate bordering on malice and bent on disrupting the prevailing atmosphere of peace.

Such statements are unacceptable especially coming from a senior politician who claims to be a patriot; no patriot will utter words with potential to incite citizens against each other.

There is nothing treasonous about what the MDC or Vice President did, those were moments of happiness and celebrations.

It is clear to all that Zanu PF’s attempts to cover up for its electoral theft has failed. The people are aware that the people’s President is Nelson Chamisa. It is therefore no crime for them to acknowledge that.

The MDC will not allow anyone to criminalize the right to assemble or express ourselves.

The MDC is aware that failed Zanu PF did not want us to hold this gathering in the first place.

They used all sorts of excuses including hiding behind cholera. We have seen attempts by Zanu PF to monopolize political space, they tried to close democratic space relentlessly.

The MDC leadership has been persecuted; ordinary Zimbabweans were killed on the 1st of August.

One is on trial for insulting Chigumba , the other for insulting Mnangagwa a similar trend which we saw under Mugabe.

The past has never left.

Khaya Moyo’s statements are therefore part of the method in the madness; they are not isolated from these barbaric acts.

We demand that he reverses these statements forthwith; he must apologize to the MDC and the people of Zimbabwe for an unwarranted attempt to malign the party of excellence.

The MDC will ensure a democratic, just and free society where the rights of citizens are not curtailed.

The time for super citizens who criminalise everything except boot licking of Zanu PF leaders is coming to an end.

We remain resolute. We remain the winners.

Behold the New, Change that delivers!

  1. These socalled politician must stop all these attarence now and have people in heart. What ther are doing is malicious to good people of Zimbabwe. During election you need these people but now you want them and watch them suffering in order to gain your political partyt gains. Please stop it.

  2. Zimbabweans are to gain most in circumstances of National Unity of Coalition arrangement than in this very disturbing atmosphere of arrogance and great intolerance elicited by Zimbabwe Revolutionary lager. One people, same blood, one nation, One Great God of Abraham…oh Zimbabweans certainly reason and morality for unity, peace should prevail.
