President Tsvangirai yesterday concluded his Harare provincial cluster network meetings after meeting with the Southerton, Mbare and Sunningdale districts.

Since the beginning of this month, President Tsvangirai has been holding districts meetings with the party structures for Harare province to hear their concerns following Zanu PF’s monumental fraud in the July 31 elections and to chart the way forward.

Addressing the three district structures at the party headquarters, Harvest House, yesterday, President Tsvangirai reiterated the MDC’s position that the MDC and the people of Zimbabwe did not lose that last elections but they were stolen by Zanu PF.

“Zanu PF did not go for an election but wanted to retain power by whatever. However, the MDC will win any election not through the bullet but through the ballot box. The MDC will not endorse Zanu PF’s theft and we will not give up on having free and fair elections through the ballot box,” he said.

The President said Zanu PF had created a national crisis after its massive rigging in the last elections.

“Robert Mugabe has created a national crisis, a crisis of legitimacy, expectations and a crisis of the economy where everyone is now turning into a vendor as companies are closing and there is no employment,” he said.

He said the national crisis that had been created by Zanu PF, it was only the MDC as an alternative party that can revive and turn around the economy adding that the MDC will in the next elections not allow the country to hold elections without reforms.

“We want reforms first then elections, Zanu PF must know that the next elections should be free and fair. We will not allow what happened in 2013. We formed the inclusive government in 2009 because the people were suffering and after Mugabe had gone for 10 months failing for a Cabinet. As the MDC in government we managed to make the economy tick and when Mugabe realised that the economy was getting back on track, he cheated again in the last election.

“That is why we want a roadmap that will create conditions for free and fair elections and for the sake of restoring legitimacy in the country,” said President Tsvangirai.

Similar well attended provincial network meetings have been held in Masvingo, Chitungwiza and the President is expected to visit the other provinces soon.
