The MDC says that it will soon launch its school of ideology that will be aimed at grooming party cadres who are able to articulate the party’s policies.
This was revealed by MDC secretary general Chalton Hwende in an interview with NewsDay on Monday. He said:
We are now busy with recruiting lecturers and administrators for the school. All the preparations are at an advanced stage now and we will be launching soon.
The setting up of the school is out of a resolution that came from our party congress. We want to develop a cadre who is conscious of their responsibility to the party and society as a whole.
We want to develop 21st-century leaders who are different from those we see in Zanu PF. We want leaders who are able to articulate our party policies, hence improving the quality of our membership.
The intention is to also change the course of politics in the country; it is no longer business as usual.
Hwende dismissed suggestions that the MDC was copying the ruling ZANU PF party which has its own Herbert Chitepo Ideological School.
