MDC president Nelson Chamisa will hold rallies in Lupane East ahead of a parliamentary by-election set to be held on August 3.
The seat fell vacant following the death of Sithembile Gumbo of Zanu PF in April.
MDC Matabeleland North provincial chairperson, Prince Sibanda also revealed that Dalumuzi Khumalo will represent the party.

In an interview with Sunday Southern Eye, Sibanda said:
I can confirm that Chamisa will be visiting the constituency where he will hold rallies in two wards.
As I speak, I am making final arrangements to book for the two rallies. On Saturday we had rallied in all the 14 wards in the constituency where all members of the national standing committees, who include the vice-presidents, were addressing rallies and preparing the groundwork for the president.
Sibanda castigated ZANU PF for using the people of Matabeleland during election time and then abandoning them. He said:
Matabeleland people are dehumanised by Zanu PF as they only get drugs because they lost an MP.
Zanu PF is only interested in getting votes from the people and does not care about them.
This time we are prepared for them.
