My Personal Invitation To Join Renewal

mtowenYours truly was the recipient of an invitation from Owen Mtombeni, apparently the UK Renewal Team interim secretary, to join Renewal.

Below we publish in full the letter which was sent to 65 others on the email, and further below my response to the invitation.

MDC Renewal Team - UK
The movement for democratic change is going through a historic transformation. This transformation has been necessitated by a realization that there has been a deviation from the founding principles of the Movement.

A document has been in the public domain highlighting the motivations behind the Renewal process. It is my belief that you have seen and heard the concerns leading to the project of renewing the party.

Tsvangirai Address To UK Structures

The MDC will approach the Constitutional Court to force the government to comply with provisions for free and fair elections which are already in the Constitution to ensure that the next election will be transparent.

This is just some of the pressure that the party intends to put on Zanu (PF) while at the same time engaging the whole spectrum of Zimbabwean society, including Zanu (PF), in a national dialogue on the on-going economic crisis.

But, said MDC President Morgan Tsvangirai on Saturday, his priority was now on strengthening the party following the departure of secretary general Tendai Biti and some other members, which he insisted should not be called a split.
