MDC has postponed its 20th Anniversary which was supposed to be held this week at Rufaro Stadium, in Harare.
A source from MDC said their party had failed to hold the celebrations because of lack of adequate funding. Instead the party is spreading word that their celebrations have coincided with former President of Zimbabwe, Cde Robert Mugabe`s burial.
“It is a shame that my party MDC has failed to hold its 20th Anniversary because of inadequate funds. The MDC is no longer getting funding from those who used to us. They have lost confidence with the party leadership especially Nelson Chamisa who is always having some flip-flopping statements,” said the Source.
In a statement yesterday, Chamisa told Journalists that its 20th Anniversary celebrations that were meant to be held this Saturday had been postponed to the 28th of this month so as to allow the funeral proceedings of the late Cde Mugabe.
“As MDC, being a Pan-Africanist and social democratic party, consistent with our values of Ubuntu, solidarity and empathy we have decided to postpone our 20th Anniversary Celebrations to the 28th September 2019 so as to allow the funeral proceedings and events not to compete with our Anniversary celebrations,” he said.
Chamisa has been castigated for being a liar. Today the MDC says it wants to honour the former President, a man they have called a tyrant since the formation of their party.
