President Morgan Tsvangirai launched the new MDC card

President Morgan Tsvangirai today launched the new MDC membership card at a colourful event in Avondale, Harare which was attended by hundreds of MDC supporters.

Speaking at the event, President Tsvangirai said this was a historic step to the continuing struggle to build the type of nation the heroes scarified so much to achieve.

“As the next step on this journey to our new Zimbabwe, it therefore gives me great pleasure to launch the MDC’s new real change card. I call upon all Zimbabweans to join me as members of the winning team. Join me in the real change team as we build the new Zimbabwe,” he said.

The launch, which was held at McDonald’s swimming pool, was held under the theme: Your master card to real change. The area is in Ward 7 where President Tsvangirai resides.

Meanwhile, the trial date of two Zanu PF supporters, Farai Machaya and Isaac Gana who murdered an MDC activist on 22 March, 2009 in Gokwe has been set for 30 October, 2010 at the High Court circuit in Gweru.

Machaya is the son of Midlands governor and senior Zanu PF official, Jason Machaya while Gana is the Zanu PF Gokwe district coordinating committee chairperson.

Chokuda’s body is still at the Gokwe hospital’s mortuary as his family are failing to bury him until he gets an apology from his son’s murderers.

The Midlands governor has also been using his political muscle to block further police investigations into the brutal murder of Chokuda.

In Manicaland province, Copac outreach meetings in Nyanga were abandoned on Thursday and Friday after the 10 Copac teams in the provinces downed their tools over non-payment of their allowances.

Hundreds of villagers who wanted to make their contributions were left stranded after the teams failed to pitch-up.

However, the outreach meetings are expected to resume tomorrow after the teams were paid their allowances this afternoon.
