The MDC Alliance Women’s Assembly spokesperson Barbara Tanyanyiwa has said that no one will stop them from condemning the failed government of Zanu PF and fighting for the people’s freedom as long as they live.
“MDC Alliance is greatly perplexed by the further recall of nine MPs from parliament on the 23rd of June 2020. Amongst the recalled is our Acting Chair Hon Mucharairwa Mugidho, Hon Basilia Majaya our Treasurer General and Hon Virginia Muradzikwa our Organising Secretary,” she said.
“We salute their bravery, resolute and steadfast for shunning the Khupe faction. They did not think of their stomachs but decided to put the revolution first. We stand with them and all other MPs and nothing is going to stop a moving train. We would like to thank the MPs for standing firm with our President Advocate Nelson Chamisa whom most day dreamers think is finished. They might be troubled but are not destroyed as all this madness shall come to pass.”
She said they still maintain their stance that MDC Alliance contested in the 2018 elections against Khupe and won resoundingly, so they are not moved.
“We are not MDC T and we have our freedom of association. No-one can force us to be what we are not. We are very clear and we shall remain so until we bring real change to the toiling masses. Basic commodities are still beyond the reach of many, the bond note continues to be useless, the innocent continue to be incarcerated, and women bear the brunt of all these eventualities,” she said.
“We continue to fight for our liberation and that of the toiling masses. “No one can stop an idea whose time has come”
Khupe was rejected by Zimbabweans in 2018 elections. She performed dismally in the presidential election in which she polled 45 000 votes only. Her party, MDC-T, failed to win even a single local government seat.
