  • All set for MDC’s 14th anniversary
    Movement for Democratic Change (MDC-T)
    September 13, 2013

    Thousands of MDC party supporters led by President Tsvangirai are on Saturday expected to converge at Sakubva Stadium in Mutare for the party’s 14th annual anniversary. The President will be accompanied by the party leadership including the Vice President, Hon. Thokozani Khupe.

    Preparations for the celebrations are at an advanced stage and this year’s celebrations will be held under the theme; “Claiming the People’s Victory”. Last year’s 13th anniversary celebrations were held at White City Stadium in Bulawayo before thousands of party supporters.

    This year’s celebrations are being held following the farce elections that saw the people’s vote being stolen by Zanu-PF through massive rigging of the voting process.

    In his address to the nation at Sakubva Stadium, President Tsvangirai is expected to put into perspective the MDC’s position as the country faces uncertainty following the stolen election and inform the people of Zimbabwe on the way forward.

    It has been torturous and challenging journey for the MDC since formation at Rufaro Stadium, in Harare on 11 September 1999 and today it is the largest political party in Zimbabwe.

    Despite the disregard of the rule of law, harassment, murders, arrests and intimidation of MDC members by the Zanu-PF regime in the past 14 years, the MDC remains committed in bringing a democratic change to the people of Zimbabwe through democratic and non-violent means.

    As the MDC celebrates its 14th anniversary, the party takes time to remember its departed cadres who fought tirelessly in the resolve to bring social, economic and democratic change to Zimbabwe.

    The party also salutes its members, Deputy national chairperson, Senator Morgen Komichi, Last Maengahama, Simon Mapanzure, Yvonne Musarurwa and Tungamirai Madzokere who are in remand prison facing false charges.
