HARARE – MDC-T led by Thokozani Khupe said while they are still tabulating
their national figures, they have, however, fielded parliamentary and
local government candidates in all the 10 provinces of Zimbabwe.

“I am pretty sure we will have more than 110 National Assembly candidates
and around 1 000 local government candidates. We are certainly on a roll
and you can be assured that the MDC-T led by Khupe is a very potent
political outfit.

“Our BEST manifesto clearly and lucidly articulates our party’s policies
on job creation, re-booting both the industrial and manufacturing sectors
as well as revamping the commercial agricultural sector.

“We are a social democratic political party that vigorously advocates for
nondiscrimination as well as the sustainable and holistic empowerment of
historically disadvantaged persons as well as vulnerable groups such as
persons with disabilities, women and children,” said the party’s deputy
president, Obert Gutu, who is a duly nominated National Assembly candidate
for Harare East constituency.

“Our party is also pushing a very strong anti-sexist trajectory and that’s
why you…Khupe’s chief election agent, Priscilla Misihairambwi-Mushonga,

“We are going to win a significant number of parliamentary and local
government seats and president Khupe is going to out-perform the majority
of the presidential candidates. In fact, she is going to win the
presidential election,” added Gutu.
