MDC Alliance Presidential candidate Mr Nelson Chamisa yesterday confirmed he was working with former President Robert Mugabe in his bid to win the July 30, 2018 harmonised elections.
At a rally in Harare, Mr Chamisa also acknowledged the support of Ms Nomthandazo Eunice Moyo, interim president of a faction of the National Patriotic Front and spokesperson, Mr Jealousy Mawarire. Mr Chamisa said no one should question whoever lends him support.
“Let me welcome NPF here represented by Mai Sandi-Moyo. Some don’t know what NPF is, when we welcome them here we are welcoming the genuine Zanu-PF. It means we have the original Zanu-PF here, authentic and undiluted. Robert Mugabe is a citizen of Zimbabwe; a former president of the Republic of Zimbabwe who is going to hand over to the president of the Second Republic, myself here present,” he said.
His announcement drew applause from the crowd, which appeared very much pleased with the alliance. Nelson Chamisa is a UNIFIER. NPF has since its formation a few months ago already splintered. Mr Chamisa also said he had international donors who would pour bucket-loads of cash into Zimbabwe after the elections.
At the same rally, MDC Alliance principal Mr Tendai Biti claimed his officials met Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan at last week’s Brics Summit in South Africa, and were also promised cash.
Mr Chamisa yesterday claimed Zanu-PF had bussed people into Harare for its poorly attended rally at the National Sports Stadium.
