SW Radio Africa News Headlines Monday 11th February 2013
Heart of the Matter begins in its new Monday slot with Tanonoka Joseph Whande who is urging the MDC-T to stay out of the ‘sanctions’ debate. He says there is nothing to warrant the party’s lobbying efforts to have the measures lifted, accusing the MDC of “being part of the rot.”
Mukadota says the MDC-T is taking things for granted, they are not campaigning or going to meet people in rural areas and they are in danger of losing elections. People feel abandoned and neglected by the party while ZANU PF is financially looking after its supporters; Sekai says the NCA and some civil organisations are urging people to vote NO to the new constitution. But some people feel this will delay the whole process of fighting for democratic change through elections; while Cleopas says there is much corruption in MDC-T structures in Masvingo, as the party gears itself up for primary elections. Sadly unqualified people are bribing the top leadership to be allowed to contest.
