Make Or Break MDC NEC Meeting

Time for patriots
The eyes and ears of all patriotic Zimba- bweans are on tomo- rrow’s meeting of the MDC national executive because they see the MDC as the only party with potential to rescue the nation.

Robert Mugabe and his agents are also looking keenly at that meeting for any opportunity to capitalise on the divisions that have already been caused by the fallout from the Women’s Congress.

The MDC’s potential to rescue the nation will not be realised if it does not win the election and its ability to win the election will be eradicated if there is a change of leadership at the top.

Some members of the Ephraim Tapa-led UK executive seem to be failing to digest the fact that they are no longer executive members and are calling for an assembly which some analysts believe is a cover to invite MDC members to a meeting to form a new political party.
