MDC spokesperson Jacob Mafume has announced that the party shall conduct public ‘Question and Answer’ sessions for party stalwarts vying for the top posts at the upcoming elective congress.
Mafume said that this exercise enhances democracy and also gives candidates a chance to preempt what they will do if elected. The spokesperson said:
The party mandated the commission to organise caucuses for those contesting each other to table before members and the public what they will offer the party and country if elected.
