MDC Youths Stage Protests in Harare, Demand Election Re-run

via MDC Youths Stage Protests in Harare, Demand Election Re-run by Thomas Chiripasi 17.08.2013

HARARE — Suspected MDC supporters today staged protests in some Harare high density suburbs expressing dismay over the outcome of the July 31 elections.

The protesters claimed that the polls were rigged by President Robert and his Zanu PF party.

Scores of people suspected to be Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s supporters staged peaceful protests in Harare’s Highfield and Mufakose high density suburbs demanding a re-run of the July 31 national elections.

One of the unidentified demonstrators, who addressed his fellow protestors, said they will not allow President Robert Mugabe to remain in power following the recent presidential election he won with a wide margin.

President Mugabe’s Zanu PF party won with a landslide victory against Mr. Tsvangirai’s Movement for Democratic Change although the prime minister remains adamant that the polls were fundamentally flawed.

The unidentified protester said the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission should release all material used in the July 31 elections to allow Zimbabweans to scrutinize it.

    The only thing that protests do is give the police and CIOs more target practice. They can forget about the election results being released, because all that matters now is that the folks at SADC don’t give a hoot.

      Wega haugaye sei. No serious investors except the Chinese who are plandering our resources would want to invest under Zanu Pf rule. Without investment the economy will not grow and the rest you can take a guess. Simple mathematics Band.

    To protest the recently publisized result is just a waste of time for the youth in Harare high density surburbs.Comrade Tsvangie is busy enjoying life in the low density surburbs of Harare.Never allow yourselve to be used by some people who will never come to you should you fall in problems.In Zim we say each man for himself but God for us all.

    Easy,his masters will send big companies to Zimbabwe and they will give him a lot of money to run the country in fact they will run Zimbabwe behind him,that’s why our wise President is fighting for economical freedom.

    So what do u prefer languishing in poverty just because you don’t want the so called foreign masters and sticking to the same man for the rest of whoever knows or just accepting the hard fact that a very few countries have ever made it without the help of these masters and non of these countries are in Africa. Maybe Morgan doesn’t have something new to offer but we are sure that for the past 33 years our lives have actually gone for the worst…so why can’t w just have change for once and afterwards we explore our options…

      my friend this is 2013…which country gets to be colonised era…u seem to have been brainwashed by your uncle…you think those masters you keep on saying they want to colonise us will just say ‘hey we gave you power to rule so give us diamonds, platinum, etc for free’. If you think so then you are dump and I don’t even know how you were able to open this webpage…western countries are just fighting for turf my friend, they just need to be the first buyers to our natural resources be it our diamond or whatever and the ones to supply us with other neccessities not the hogwash you have been fed…google up with ur phone and look for countries that have been colonised and give m a name…

    To be honest…im glad Zanu PF won these elections. Just take a step back and look at the bigger picture. A Zanu PF win gives us the youth and leaders of the future a platform to set our own agenda. My father told me that at my age we he wasn’t sitting around waiting for fortune to smile down on him but he slapped her and she has respected him for it ever since. I understand the frustrations of my fellow youth however protesting is going to help us my brothers and sisters but taking the bull by the horns will. Just look at S.A great road network, infrastructure, stable economy and good relations with world. On the other had massive debt of over US$200 billion, highest crime rate in the world, endless corruption, black poverty no lower then it was during apartheid, striking miners killed in there dozens but we envy that. You watch dstv, sabc and etv and think thats the real S.A???? You honestly the people live like the characters on their shows???? Wake up!!! You want somthing you have to take it. Just like our brave liberation heros…they didn’t sit on bridges smoking weed and drinking codine all day then complain that things wern’t right. Lets stop complaining and be a part making Zimbabwe the greatest country in Africa and maybe one day the world. I don’t know great nation or civilization that waited for “investors”. The greeks, romans, persians, british, americans,chinese. None of them reached their heights on handouts. If we can’t do it for ourselves you think their going to come and do for us????

    No, they reached their heights by military might. Are you suggesting Zimbabwe builds up a huge army and attacks other African countries?

      That is true they were and some still are military power-houses however what they did best was be at the forefront of technological, philosophical and religous discovery. Yes military power is important but the rest are just as important. Read up on soft power my friend
