MDC Pulls Out of COPAC Publicity Campaign

Welshman Ncube’s MDC has pulled out of the COPAC publicity campaign.

It was signed by Priscilla Misihairabwi –Mushonga, its  Secretary General.

This is the press statement they issued:

MDC has pulled out of the COPAC publicity campaign due to a decision taken by MDC –T’s Douglas Mwonzora and Zanu –PF’s Munyaradzi Paul Mangwana to exclude MDC from 8 out of ten provinces.

It has turned out that it was infact a strategy to use these fora as a platform to attack the MDC, particularly by Zanu –PF. As a result of this, MDC has pulled out from the two provinces where we were allowed to participate. As a party we are going to be holding our own separate publicity campaigns and are no longer part of the process.

Zimbabwe is set to vote on a new constitution in a referendum to be held on 16 March this year. The exercise has so far been characterised by apathy.
