THE MDC Youth Assembly has said it will join forces with millions of suffering Zimbabweans to embark on a massive campaign to remove President Emmerson Mnangagwa from power, accusing him failing to solve the continuously deteriorating socio-economic situation.
Addressing MDC Alliance supporters at the belated victory celebrations for Dangamvura/Chikanga constituency won by Prosper Mutseyami held at Dangamvura primary school on Saturday, the MDC Youth Assembly Secretary General Ostallos Siziba said the MDC youths will gang up with citizens and confront Mnangagwa to resign and let the MDC Alliance take over.
“First of all, it is known everywhere that the MDC won the (past election). We are the majority. But look at our future as youths, it is bleak. Everything is down,” he said.
“What is going to happen is that we are going door to door mobilizing citizens to march against ED and force him to resign. This is now a people’s struggle. Everyone in Zimbabwe has been affected by Mnangagwa’s dictatorship. Its all for us now to unite and fight for our economic and social cause,” he said.
Siziba said Mnangagwa will end up a villain like what other African leaders including the late former President of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe.
“By the look of it, all things are getting worse than before when Mugabe was there. As we stand right now 95 percent of people are unemployed and the people are surviving on emergency things,” said Siziba.
“Mnangagwa inherited the looting spirit and diamonds are still disappearing. He has a worst finance minister in Mthuli Ncube who is clueless and the majority are continue suffering under these people. We say enough is enough
As youth we say no and we are coming for you ED,” said Siziba amid huge cheers.
“What happened to Mugabe in November 2017 will also happen to him (Mnangagwa), yes he works with soldiers and police to beat up people but those soldiers and police officers are our brothers and sisters who are also very hungry, we are going for Mnangagwa,” he added.
The MDC’s calls come amid growing calls by civic society, churches and labour to pressure Mnangagwa to resign or allow a level playing field in having dialogue with MDC leader Nelson Chamisa.
