Former Glen View South MP, Paul Madzore (MDC), says MDC-T leader Douglas Mwonzora should stop playing his music at the party’s rallies as he has nothing to do with his former party.
Madzore has composed dozens of political songs since the time he was a member of the original MDC but he is now affiliated with the Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) led by Nelson Chamisa.
Both CCC and MDC-T play Madzore’s songs during their ongoing campaigns ahead of the 26 March by-elections and the 2023 general elections.
Speaking to the NewsDay, Madzore called on Mwonzora to “respect” him and his art and desist from playing his songs at his rallies. Madzore said:
If I had the means to stop Mwonzora from playing my music, I would simply go and switch off their PA system.
I create my music for the people of Zimbabwe who are suffering in their own land because of ZANU PF rule.
One thing that is very clear is that I do not support Mwonzora, a person who recalled people that were elected.
He must respect me and my art. It’s a way of robbing supporters, but people are not stupid they know where I belong.
CCC national deputy spokesperson Gift Ostallos Siziba said Madzore has already started creating new music for the CCC party.
