  • MDC 14th Anniversary - a milestone in the fight for democracy
    Movement for Democratic Change (MDC-T)
    September 11, 2013

    The MDC will hold its 14th anniversary celebrations running under the theme; “Claiming the People’s Victory,” at Sakubva Stadium in Mutare on Saturday.

    The anniversary which is an annual and crucial event on the MDC calendar gives opportunity to both the leadership and supporters to converge and reflect on the founding values and principles of the party with a view to charting the way forward.

    The past 14 years, MDC has survived some of the most atrocious political vagaries at the instigation of the brutal Zanu-PF regime and has established itself as the most formidable political force in Zimbabwe and beyond.

    Despite all odds the MDC has grown phenomenally to becoming one of Africa’s most revered and vibrant democratic movement to ever challenge successfully, one of Africa’s oldest and most intransigent dictatorships.

    Over the years the MDC has been able to stir and turn-around the political, social and economic life of the people of Zimbabwe.

    The celebration which comes soon after the stolen election could not have come at any better time as people of Zimbabwe seriously need to reflect and discern on the best way forward. This year’s anniversary would certainly re invigorate our undying resolve to usher a totally new political and economic dispensation which will bring real transformation to the lives of many Zimbabweans.

    Most importantly it will re-energise the people’s endeavour for a democratic Zimbabwe where everyone is free to participate in any sphere of life without inhibition or state excesses which infringes on people’s basic freedoms.

    The people of Zimbabwe will never relent in this march towards real transformation and the MDC will never abdicate on its goal to deliver a free and democratic Zimbabwe.
