Opposition MDC Alliance leader, Nelson Chamisa Sunday told supporters in Goba areas, Bulilima East in Plumtree, Matabeleland South that “the Zimbabwe we all want is coming.”
Bulawayo24 reports that the youthful leader was welcomed by joy and ululation as visibly soaked but happy villagers resorted to music and dance. Addressing the gathering, he said:
The Zimbabwe we all want is coming. Let us all remain vigilant and urge each and everyone to go and vote for change.
Chamisa has in recent weeks been touring rural areas to mobilise supporters ahead of the 2023 elections.
He has faced resistance from ruling ZANU PF supporters in some provinces including Masvingo, Manicaland and Mashonaland West where his supporters and or aides were assaulted.
As blockades have been mounted on roads, Chamisa has reportedly abandoned his large entourage and security as they were easy to track and is only accompanied by his aides.
His tours come when Zimbabwe is facing economic and humanitarian and political crises that are characterised by inflation, power cuts and a deteriorating democratic space.
MDC Alliance believes the state of affairs is almost enough for the electorate to vote the governing ZANU PF out of power in 2023.
Meanwhile, ZANU PF is aiming to get at least five million votes to retain power.
