MDC Youth Assembly would like to congratulate Dad and Mummy for successfully tying the note yesterday against all odds. Mama Elizabeth comes in the MDC family in our party’s month of celebrations, MDC’s birth month, and the wedding bells also rang on the anniversary of the global political agreement that ushered in a new era for Zimbabwe. Welcome Mummy we love you.
The Assembly greatly respects the party’s number one and the nation’s Prime Minister, Rt Hon Dr Morgan Richard Tsvangirai for the bold decision to bring home our mother, Mama Elizabeth Tsvangirai.
The MDC is made up of three major wings which are complimentary to each other i.e. Mummy (the Women Assembly), Dad (the Main Wing) and Children (the Youth Assembly). As the children of MDC, we are proud to have you as our Mummy-the nation’s future first lady, welcome home.
After the death of Mai Susan Nyaradzo Tsvangirai in 2009 in an unforgettable fatal car accident, as children of this movement we were left with a void, motherless. Since the inception of our party in 1999, during the era of the interim Youth Chairperson Learnmore Judah Jongwe, to that of Nelson “Wamba” Chamisa, to the era of Tamsanqa Mahlangu; Mama Susan has been a mother to those generations.
Mama Elizabeth will carry on with the motherly role to the Assembly as it is being led by Solomon “Mandela” Madzore. Mama has come at a time when 29 of her children are in detention on allegations of trumped up murder charges, whose trial has grossly exposed the fallacy that Zimbabwe’s justice system has become.
We would like to urge Mum and Dad to be strong hearted in the face of the adversities of the world, as has been showcased by the incessant efforts by forces of darkness to derail the God-blessed union. We would like to wish our mother well as she provides the much needed support and strength to our father, President Morgan as he heads the party in this final lap of the marathon to a new democratic Zimbabwe.
As the children, we will remain obedient, disciplined and unwaveringly committed to the fight under the leadership of the visionary president Morgan Richard Tsvangirai. We promise to play our critical role to finish the struggle and deliver the Real transformation that the Zimbabwean family is longing for.
Congratulations once again for the Real Choice.
Real Choice for Real Change.
Our era is NOW: Let’s Do it Now to shape our own destiny!!!
For and on behalf of the young people of Zimbabwe
