Opposition Citizens’ Coalition for Change (CCC)’s leader, Nelson Chamisa Saturday reiterated that he will be the next president of Zimbabwe adding, “I’m ready.”
He made the remarks while addressing dozens of party supporters at the White City Stadium in Bulawayo where he was campaigning for the 26 March by-elections and 2023 elections.
He pledged to transform the lives of people in Bulawayo and the whole nation at large.
- He promised to complete the Zambezi water project The idea to bring water to Bulawayo from the Zambezi River was mooted in 1912 and has remained a dream for over a century and Zimbabwe’s second-largest city has continued to experience debilitating water shortages.
- To restore Bulawayo as the industrial hub of the country. Bulawayo is Zimbabwe’s second-largest city and it is 439km from the capital, Harare, 111 km from the Botswana border, and on the line of rail via Victoria Falls to Zambia and the Copperbelt.
- To restore quality education. Zimbabwe’s education sector, like all other sectors, collapsed in the last two decades and scores of learners have been going abroad for education.
- To ensure justice for victims of political violence starting with Gukurahundi victims. An estimated 20 000 people were killed in Matabeleland and Midlands by a North Korean-trained 5th Brigade.
