MDC Alliance presidential candidate, Nelson Chamisa yesterday claimed that his alliance had figured out Zanu PF’s election rigging gimmicks and were now confident of an outright victory in the upcoming general elections.
Chamisa told supporters at Ruwangwe business centre in Nyanga North that he was sure he would score no less than 70% of the votes in the first round of the polls and there would no need for a rerun.
“If we don’t get 70% of the vote, then they would have rigged the election. We have done our homework, we’ve done in it in Harare, Bulawayo, Manicaland, Matabeleland,” he said without elaborating.
“We are here because we are aware that this is where most of our voters are and we need to change your lives and we are in a season of change. I know there are soldiers, who have been sent to rural areas and they are not in uniform, but disguised as civilians to monitor your activities ahead of the polls.”
Chamisa pledged to introduce plenty of policies as soon as he gets into power, including reintroducing the Zimbabwe dollar and having a leaner cabinet. – Newsday
