The main opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC-T) again made its presence felt with another demonstration, this time in Masvingo on Saturday.
MDC-T provincial chairperson James Gumbi said of the protest:
“We need to send a message as Masvingo. We also have a fair share of our problems as a province, like the Chingwizi villagers’ plight, the delay in the completion of Tokwe Mukosi Dam, as well as the killer Masvingo-Beitbidge Road that needs urgent dualisation after claiming thousands of lives of cross-border traders from the province.”
The party led by former Prime Minister, Morgan Tsvangirai, has in the past weeks rolled out several protests in other cities like Harare, Bulawayo and Mutare to pressure President Robert Mugabe’s regime to arrest the country’s deteriorating socio-economic environment.
