Temba Mliswa says protestors must march to State House in numbers to take the fight to Mugabe’s doorstep.
“I have advice to people who really are determined. Can they go on Google and try to find the way to State House? Why don’t you march there? You are allowed to go to him and say President this is what has happened. That is where he works and lives,” he told journalists in Harare yesterday.
“State House is there and let’s all march there. That is the march I am looking forward to and that is the march you will see me leading too. The day you decide to march to State House you can count on me because it’s a meaningful march. We will be taking to his office and say you are not hearing us and we are now coming to your home.”
Mliswa said it would be difficult to remove Mugabe from power through the protests, hence the change of tactics.
The former Hurungwe West MP, who is vying for the Norton constituency as an independent candidate, also expressed confidence that he would triumph over a divided Zanu PF. He described as self-destructive the continuous boycotting of polls by the opposition.
“Opposition parties would do well to encourage increased voter registration as opposed to boycotting elections as boycotting cultivates a habit of voter apathy that is bound to work against them come 2018. Zanu PF is continuously registering new voters who, whether forcibly or not, participate in elections, thereby swinging votes in their favour,” Mliswa said
