President Tsvangirai to address 2 rallies in Nkayi
Movement for Democratic Change (MDC)
October 20, 2011

President Tsvangirai and the MDC Real Change team will on Saturday and Sunday address thousands of party supporters at two rallies in Nkayi North and South, Matebeleland North province.

The rallies will take place at Nesigwe Business Centre, Nkayi North on Saturday 22 October and Ziminya Business Centre in Nkayi South on Sunday 23 October.

President Tsvangirai's address will touch on various issues including the life and health of the MDC, the Inclusive Government and challenges faced; the Constitution-making process and the position of the roadmap to a free and fair violence. He will also focus on the issue of state sponsored violence that is taking place in some parts of the country especially Harare.

Several Real Change provincial rallies have taken place in most of the provinces since the start of the year and have been attended by thousands of party supporters and members. The Nkayi rallies are being held when Zanu PF thugs have continued to disrupt public hearings on the Electoral Amendment Bill that are currently taking place across the country.

In Marondera, Mutare and Masvingo, Zanu PF hooligans this week disrupted these public procedures to frustrate efforts to consult people of Zimbabwe on what they feel should be included in the Electoral Amendment Bill to allow for the holding of the next free and fair elections. The MDC condemns these acts of violence in the strongest sense and urges the police to justify their existence amid the Zanu PF chaos. The people of Zimbabwe want to live in an environment conducive for development, upliftment and prosperity.
