Step aside... MDC needs a new face, youths

Sunday Observer - - NEWS - HARARE –

Zim­babwe's main op­po­si­tion, the Move­ment for Demo­cratic Change (MDC) party youths have called on long-time leader Mor­gan Ts­van­gi­rai to step aside in or­der to al­low new lead­ers to take the party for­ward, says a re­port.

Ac­cord­ing to NewsDay, an MDC Mata­bele­land South youth leader Archibald Nya­ma­yaro said that the party needed to "shift its mind set and its ap­proach" in or­der to win the forth­com­ing elec­tion. Nya­ma­yaro said that the party could be rel­e­gated to ir­rel­e­vance as the coun­try's new Pres­i­dent Em­mer­son Mnan­gagwa was mak­ing in­roads with his prom­ise for change. He said that the party’s only leader since its for­ma­tion in 1999 was not in good health and there­fore, it was time for young blood to take over con­sti­tu­tion­ally.
