MDC claiming people’s victory

The Movement for Democratic Change, which still claims that it was robbed in the 2013 general elections, will celebrate its 14th anniversary at Sakubva Stadium in Mutare this weekend under the theme: “Claiming the people’s victory”.

Party leader Morgan Tsvangirai is expected to give the key note address.

The MDC, which had 100 seats in the last elections lost 51 to remain with 49 while ZANU-PF which had 99 gained 61 and now has 160 seats in the 210-member lower house.

Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front leader Robert Mugabe won 61 percent of the polls.

“The celebration which comes soon after the stolen victory in the just ended election could not have come at any better time as people of Zimbabwe seriously need to reflect on this monumental indictment of a people’s march to victory in the history of mankind,” the MDC said.

“ZANU-PF which obviously is still basking in the glory of a false victory is in panic mode as it is still grappling to authenticate the just ended election farce so as to attain legitimacy.”

MDC to celebrate victory in face of adversity

The MDC will hold its 14th anniversary celebrations running under the theme; “Claiming the People’s Victory,” at Sakubva Stadium in Mutare on Saturday.

This year’s celebrations come at a time when the people of Zimbabwe’s victory was shamelessly stolen by Zanu PF in the 31st July elections.

President Tsvangirai who will be accompanied by senior party members will give the key note address at an event that will be attended by thousands of party supporters from across the country.

The anniversary is an annual and crucial event on the MDC calendar and we are celebrating the 14th anniversary of the formation of the MDC in 1999. It is not an illusion that over the past 14 years the MDC has established itself as a formidable political force in Zimbabwe and characteristically our most ardent critics and enemies are always unsettled and unnerved by this gesture of our periodic renewal.

It is therefore not surprising that perennial and rabid critics from Zanu PF get incensed and would go all out concocting all sorts of ill-conceived ideas and myths towards our well intended gesture to the people of Zimbabwe.

The celebration which comes soon after the stolen victory in the just ended election could not have come at any better time as people of Zimbabwe seriously need to reflect on this monumental indictment of a people’s march to victory in the history of mankind.

Zanu PF which obviously is still basking in the glory of a false victory is in panic mode as it is still grappling to authenticate the just ended election farce so as to attain legitimacy.

The people of Zimbabwe will never relent in this march towards total transformation and the MDC will never let down the people in their endeavour for a free and democratic Zimbabwe. “Claiming the People’s Victory,” a befitting theme for this Year’s Anniversary celebrations.

    I doubt MDC will get ZRP-ZANU-PF clearance for this event. In which case, Zanu-Pf would indicate their underlying insecurity and ‘guilt’ – it could be said. Not that this subtle point would ever impinge on their intelligences.

    They can group and talk rubbish but who cares. A puppet is a puppet. Tsvangirai is dead and gone to the dust bin.

    Let them celebrate their failure. The dead are always known as ghosts. When you see a ghostof the dead it means the person did not die a good death. So be aware.

    MDC must use this money they are throwing away to do something for their people where they won like Mabvuku so that those people will continue supporting them. This route they are taking will leave them with noone come 5 years. MDC must preach progressive gospel and hope to the people. They can continue dicampaigning progress at their peril. These guys have no strategy and soon more people will dump them

    MDC will long be remembered as a gullible party that prostituted itself to Zanu PF

      @ Chimsoro. I will remember the MDC as the party that ushered a new way of doing political business. ZPF had from 1990 to deal with the land issue only to deal with it in 2000 because of the partnership between the white farmers and MDC. ZPF could have dealt with the constitution since 1990 but only attempted to deal with it after pressure from NCA, and chisipiti che MDC. ZPF had 30 years to deal with economic empowerment and only dealt with it after a threat from the MDC. Ikezvi the next 5 years will be different for ZPF as it will not be business as usual. I am sure we are going to see some form of paradigm shift in how the new government operates. Remember Tsvangson is waiting in the wings.

    This is simply not true, MDC-T was formed in 2005 after the split. There was no MDC-T formed in 1999, its the MDC that was formed in 1999 not MDC-T. This is public knowledge!

    Therefore the MDC-T is not 14 years. please read all MDC documents – an MDC with a “T” at the end does not exist in any record dated 1999!!

    Kanti whats wrong with these Gukurahundis?
