The MDC-T has resolved to name its branches and cells after its fallen local heroes who died over the past years.
The party said it was important to honour its “Real Change heroes” most of whom they claim were killed by Zanu PF activists or State operatives.
MDC-T organising secretary Nelson Chamisa confirmed the development yesterday, saying it was a way to show respect, gratitude and honour to those who died in the struggle.
“We resolved to do this as a way of giving honour to many heroes of the struggle. This struggle has created a multiple of heroes like Tonderai Ndira, Godfrey Kauzani, Cain Nyevhe, Better Chokururama and many others.
There is nothing wrong with recognising and honouring those heroes,” said Chamisa. The MDC-T held a meeting over the weekend to review its performance.
Provincial chairpersons, women assembly and youth assembly leaders were among heads that attended.
“We met to review our annual performance with chairpersons, organisers, youth and women assemblies and other leaders.
We wanted to assess whether we had achieved anything or not, but overall we are satisfied with the report we got from the structures. It shows the party is on the move,” Chamisa said.
“The reports are very encouraging, the party is full of energy, but there are cases of intimidation in some provinces by the other party.”
Chamisa disclosed they also discussed the issue of elections, saying “we are preparing for elections”.
“When training as a team, we prepare as if there will be an election in the next hour. We can only have an election under free and fair conditions.
The environment has to be conducive for us to go for elections, but not at the moment,” he said.
