Solomon Madzore, the MDC Youth Assembly President has urged youths to register and vote in the coming elections despite the impunity of Zanu Pf and state security agents in trying to decimate the party of excellence. Madzore was speaking at a rally organized by Bulawayo MDC youth on Saturday to welcome him from Chikurubi Maximum Prison where he was released on November 14 after more than a year in incarceration.
“MorganTsvangirai can only be President if you are registered to vote. If you are not registered to vote that will be the greatest betrayal you have done to the struggle that we engaged in for the past 13 years.” Madzore said.
Madzore said the next vote is for transformation of the country from the economic downturn caused by Zanu PF which has thrown people into untold suffering and abject poverty.
“We are voting for transformation of all sectors of the economy. Our vote should enable President Morgan Tsvangirai to bring jobs, health care, food, safe clean water and a better future for our children. This is a historic vote.”
Madzore said during his incarceration, he was surprised to discover that the majority of personnel at Chikurubi Maximum Prison support Morgan Tsvangirai and want change in the country. Madzore said contrary to what has often been said by security chiefs the majority of state security agents including prison warders are tired of Mugabe and want change in the country to enable them to improve their lives and the lives of their children.
Madzore also spoke on the looting of diamonds from Chiadzwa by Minister of Mines Obert Mpofu and those aligned to the Zanu Pf party. He questioned the riches that Minister Obert Mpofu has amassed in so short space of time and promised that the end of corruption could only be realized through a vote for the party of excellence.
Madzore also took time to talk to the youth on protecting their lives from the scourge of HIV/AIDS.
“As you can see for yourselves I have come here with my wife. This must be a sign for you as young people that you need to guard your lives jealously against this scourge. Please adhere to one partner and don’t forget to use protection all the time.”
Madzore also highlighted that the youth in the party are also agitating for leadership positions saying it is prudent for continuity and representational purposes to become councilors and members of parliament.
Also speaking at the rally the secretary general of the MDC Youth Assembly Promise Mkwananzi thanked the youth in Bulawayo for their resilience and fortitude ahead of the next elections.
Mkwananzi said the youth must support each other and vote for each other so that they can be representatives of the party at decision making levels. The rally was attended by more than 1000 youths from Bulawayo.
