The Nelson Chamisa-led MDC Alliance said it had gone a gear-up in its rural mobilization exercise targeting six million voters for the 2023 elections.
The opposition party’s secretary for rural mobilization and strategy, Happy more Chidziva said they were taking the rural mobilization campaign to Mashonaland Central province this week, but were likely to face a daunting task in penetrating an area traditionally seen as a Zanu PF stronghold.
“We are targeting six million change voices as MDC Alliance. Our rural mobilization is on and we are now moving towards Mashonaland Central province,” Chidziva said. “From rural areas, we don’t target a specific age group; we just want at least three million rural voices. We are meeting opinion leaders, interfacing with them to discuss change. Every society has its influential people and opinion setters hence we are meeting them before going to grassroots.”
Chidziva said their six million vote mobilization campaign was not meant to counter that of their archrivals.
The Zanu PF party is currently on a cell restructuring and verification exercise which is targeting to achieve five million supporters. Newsday
