HARARE – Zimbabwe’s main opposition MDC will launch its manifesto and
policy documents at its 18th anniversary in September, signalling a shift
to the left to try to capitalise on voters’ concerns over rising

MDC spokesperson Obert Gutu said: “Preparations are going on very well and
in the next few months, we shall be holding our policy conference where
the policy document will be thoroughly debated before being fine-tuned
followed by formal adoption.

“Our 2018 election manifesto will be essentially informed by the policy
document. So far, we are extremely pleased with the progress that has been
made and we can assure Zimbabweans that our 2018 election manifesto will
be a killer!”  – Mugove Tafirenyika

According to MDC policy chief Nelson Chamisa, the policy document will
emphasise “smart governance, smart economics, smart institutions, smart
social policies and smart foreign policies in a new Zimbabwe.” – Mugove
