HARARE – People’s Democratic Party says the current government has
benefited from lies peddled over MDC Alliance’s US trip which it says is
an attempt to run away from a commitment to the democratic obligations
provided in our Constitution.

Contrary to reports, Tendai Biti and the team from the MDC Alliance are on
a round trip meant to engage the international community to engage Harare
to commit to the following; a free and fair election including allowing
election monitors at least three months before the election; a return to
legitimacy with soldiers returning to attend to duties provided in section
212 of the Constitution; addressing human rights violations of the past
through a full enquiry including accounting for missing persons like Itai
Dzamara; honest Economic reforms as opposed to half-baked sound bites
ridden ones presented in the budget; full commitment to the rule of law
and constitutionalism; put an end to the land question; open a full
inquiry into the Marange diamonds and the missing 15 billion on dollars;
align the laws to the Constitution including the implementation of
devolution of power. … among others, said PDP in a statement.

The party said it will not apologise “for saying that the current
government is unelected and cannot be allowed to incur new debts on behalf
of our people as there is no evidence that they will account.”
