Tsvangirai Optimistic Of Coalition Chances Against Zanu PF

Movement for Democratic Change leader Morgan Tsvangirai is confident a coalition of opposition parties will dislodge the ruling Zanu PF from power in the 2018 harmonized elections.

In a statement released on Monday, Tsvangirai was optimistic that the democratic movement has gathered momentum and ready to rescue the country from collapse.

“It might have taken long in coming but the past few months have seen the much-awaited resurgence of the democratic movement in Zimbabwe.

“For a long time, this is what the people of Zimbabwe have been clamoring for; in the hope that such a convergence would provide the much-needed fillip for change in a country now tottering on the brink of becoming a failed State,” reads part of the statement.

More than 18 opposition parties under the banner of National Elections Reform Agenda have shown an interest to battle against the ruling Zanu PF as a single unit and the former trade unionist believes its a matter of time before all the parties come together.

“The pace might not be breath-taking, but slowly, the convergence of the country’s democratic forces is becoming a reality. It is pertinent to state from the outset that as a party, we have played our part in this congregation of the democratic forces,” said Tsvangirai.

MDC-T has signed Memorandums of Understanding with Joice Mujuru’s National People’s Party and MDC-N led by Professor Welshmen Ncube with more parties set to join officially append their signatures on the envisaged coalition.
