The Desired Change: Zimbabwe

MDC T manifesto (5)

Morgan Tsvangirai, is the first ever resilient and persistent opposition there ever was in Zimbabwe. He survived the arrests, raids,  accidents, beating and none of these things moved him. He has his followers, that are part of the population that desire to see change. Prof. Arthur Mutambara, became weary and left the competition which is not for the faint hearted. However, he had managed to take a chunk of followers to his party fraction, the MDC-T. His followers have since returned to Morgan Tsvangirai stating that Mutambara was never sincere. Maybe at this point in time Mutambara has no place to call home. In 2013, Professor Welshman Ncube has also come hot in a bid to snatch another chunk from MDC-T, however, the Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai who is running for Presidency is not moved, either are his supporters. He has public respect and people call him a humble man. He has support across all walks of life and age. With his Red Regalia, citizens walk with conviction that victory has arrived.
