THE contest for the control of Budiriro is between MDC pro-senate candidate Gabriel Chaibva and Zanu PF’s Jeremiah Bvirindi in the by-election due tomorrow.
Morgan Tsvangirai as a bogus MDC leader can make all the noise in
Budiriro in his efforts to shore up Emmanuel Chisvuure who is one of the most-hated youth leaders in Budiriro.
Chisvuure tried in vain to block the late Gilbert Shoko from representing the constituency and the latter died a very bitter man. Now Tsvangirai has imposed the same Chisvuure who caused sorrow and suffering to Shoko’s family.
Chaibva has properties in Budiriro registered in his name while Chisvuure is a lodger who does not own anything in the suburb.
The MDC pro-senate faction is not going to hold rallies in Budiriro for the benefit of our supporters.
As a party born out of a struggle and guided by democratic principles, the electoral route is our Plan A, and we will not give away the Budiriro seat to either Tsvangirai or Robert Mugabe.
We have spoken to real voters on the voters’ roll in Budiriro, not street kids and people from outside the suburb who have been attending Tsvangirai’s rallies.
We are very confident that Chaibva is going to win the Budiriro by-election, judging from the people’s response.
The people of Budiriro will vote for a politically mature and experienced MP who has seen it all like Chaibva. Chisvuure has terrorised the people of Budiriro in typical Zanu PF style with Tsvangirai’s blessings.
