You are kindly invited to attend MDC UK and Ireland 18th Anniversary Celebration in Birmingham where MDC members and friends will come together and celebrate everything that we have achieved over the past 18 years. Yes we have heartfelt testimonies about challenges that we have faced, some very tragic, but all these ideals have kept us going and we are strongly focused ahead of the expected 2018 elections.
As an institution founded on democratic principles and values, we have achieved much that we can be very proud of including rescuing the country from total collapse in 2009 when we formed the GNU. The move salvaged the country and restored hope and opportunities for Zimbabweans. The MDC played a vital role in spearheading and delivering a new constitution.
It is our since hope that we celebrate together as Zimbabweans and look deeper ahead into 2018 which is providing a window of opportunity to remove the corrupt Zanu PF from power. We are heading into the 2018 general elections with much hope and determination as the environment is providing clear opportunities for the opposition to emerge victorious. As MDC UK and Ireland External Assembly, we embracing and giving our maximum support for the formation of MDC Alliance. This is the only solution we can offer to Zimbabweans who have become destitute both from home and abroad. Here in United Kingdom we are witnessing men and women who are going through hard times due to lack of the right to stay. We should give our full support to the MDC Alliance to win the 2018 election in order to offer Zimbabweans a better life and create opportunities for business investments to create jobs so that we can return back home.
As a structure, its time we take firm action and help our country to create a safe and welcoming space for everyone. We must therefore as a structure remain focused and take a leading role to stir up our nation and citizens to live their dreams.Our primary objective as a structure is to continue to put pressure on Zanu PF to create an environment for free and fair elections. By free and fair we mean credible processes that meet minimum standards set by SADC and United Nations. We must not just watch but take action now until election time by taking the Zimbabwean issue on the International platform such as AU, SADC and United Nations.
