MDC ALLIANCE IN DOOR TO DOOR CAMPAIGN FOR CHAMISA
THE Chamisa-led MDC Alliance has launched door-to-door campaigns in Bulawayo ahead of Nelson Chamisa’s star rally at White City Stadium on Saturday.
Bulawayo’s MDC Alliance provincial executive, Edwin Ndlovu said they were targeting a bumper crowd at the rally which sounds like a popularity contest between rivals Chamisa and Bulawayo based Khupe.
“We encourage the people of Bulawayo to come in thousands and witness the mother of all rallies, which will set the tone as we approach the watershed election this year.
The rally will also make it clear who is in charge politically in Bulawayo,” he said.
“We shall be unveiling our presidential candidate as MDC Alliance [Chamisa] to the people of Bulawayo. The rally shall be a family event, which shall be peaceful as ever and everyone is invited to attend. We call upon youth, first time voters, the senior citizens and all others to come and hear what the future holds for them.”
Ndlovu said they had started door-to-door campaigns in all 29 wards of Bulawayo in preparation for the rally.
“Today [yesterday] up to Friday, we are also doing ward rallies and we appeal to the people of Bulawayo to give support to the Alliance. Victory is nigh,” he said.
The rally after Thokozani Khupe’s MDC splinter group postponed its own congress, which was set for the same day in Bulawayo, for security reasons.
