STAFF REPORTER 13 March 2018
HARARE – Job Sikhala has declared interest in the Zengeza West National
Assembly seat under the MDC Alliance ticket.
The recruitment secretary for the Nelson Chamisa-led MDC Alliance said he
decided to contest after a wave self-renewal and regeneration of the MDC
after the sad loss of Morgan Tsvangirai.
“The emergence of …Chamisa as the leader of the movement brought with it
the new trajectory to the national body politic.
“It brings with it generational consensus and in that he needs strong
support and people who will stand with him during this moment. It will be
betrayal not to offer him best support available through participation to
add value to the narrative.
“He convinced me that by not standing and remaining rigid will be the
betrayal of the cause of the generation and him at the personal level. I
need to support him and fight that he wins the upcoming elections.
“It can only be done by actively participating in the electoral process to
mobilise the fence sitters, the fatigued and pessimists.”
