Masvingo(ZimEye)-The usually sleepy city of Masvingo has suddenly become alive as local residents anticipate MDC president and Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai`s visit to the city to attend a peace building prayer meeting organized by the Zimbabwe Pastoral Fellowship Association Saturday.
A fresh wave of excitement has swept through the dormant city as hundreds of local residents brace for the peace building prayer meeting at Mucheke Stadium.
Gospel music icons Pastor Charles Charamba and Mrs Olyvia Charamba will perform at the event alongside high riding gospel music star Blessing Shumba.
MDC provincial spokesperson Harrison Mudzuri yesterday said Prime Minister Tsvangirai would be accompanied by senior MDC officials and government ministers. He added the event should be celebrated by all peace loving Zimbabweans.
“The coming of the Prime Minister shows that the MDC is a peace loving party and it is our duty to work for a peaceful and democratic environment. We are therefore calling on all objective minded residents of the city of Masvingo and the people from all corners of the province to turn up in numbers to attend the crucial event. This
is part of our programme to work with stakeholders and Church organizations to discourage violence in the country. This time we are calling for peaceful elections and we also expect Mugabe to come and unite with the MDC family on the day. We are expecting hundreds of party supporters and Church members to throng the stadium and we also expect Zanu PF supporters to attend the important event, “said Honourable Mudzuri.
Meanwhile MDC Masvingo Urban Constituency chairperson Muranganwa Chanyawu also called on peace loving residents of the ancient city to rally behind the peace building objective.
“We are calling on all objective minded residents to support the noble cause,”said Chanyawu.(ZimEye,Zimbabwe)
