Chamisa draws crowds in rural Masvingo

MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa has taken his campaign to rural Masvingo, drawing big crowds at two events in Nyika and Zaka.

Chamisa began his campaign in Nyika on Friday before yesterday’s rally at Jerera growth point in Zaka.

He told hundreds of mostly MDC-T supporters that if he wins the elections, expected between July and August, his government would review all the so-called mega deals with Russia and China.

Chamisa said most of the deals were structured to benefit individuals and not Zimbabwe.

“We want the country to be developed,” he said. “We are going to look at different mega deals, for example, those done illegally.

“If it is done transparently fine; but if not done properly, we are going to change that,” he said.

“We are taking note of those mega deals that are being done and we want to see if it is not an issue of corruption to benefit only those in power.”

President Emmerson Mnangagwa early this month visited China where he signed a number of deals, which the government claimed would soon have a positive impact on the economy.
Chamisa said there was no reason for Zimbabwe to be poor since the country was endowed with vast mineral resources.

“So far we have 60 minerals in the country, but we are still in poverty, gold is everywhere,” he said.

“The issue that we have is that money is being looted, but we want to reverse all those things.”

MDC-T vice president Elias Mudzuri, Kudakwashe Bhasikiti and other MDC Alliance leaders attended the rally.

Chamisa has been crisscrossing the country drumming up support for the coalition ahead of the polls.

    It would help the reader if your news article came with photos of the said rallies or estimates of the attendance.

    Elections are won by the addition or subtractions of who is on the voters’ roll. That is now ZANU(PF)’s smart way of rigging. Counter solution – every Zimbabwean must pretend to be a ZANU(PF) supporter and be put on the ZANU(PF) party register which is used by Mudede and Nikhuv to rig elections. Any other strategy will not work. Mark my words! They leave only a handful of none ZANU(PF) register people on the roll to give it a semblance of legality. That is why they are confident of winning because they already know the numbers they have put on the electoral role and at what ratios. ICHO!

    Its is good he is focusing his campaign in rural Zimbabwe. He must go one up and train volunteers – for a more personalised campaign. The volunteers must have a grasp of the local languages and culture, must be able to field questions.
