MDC spokesperson Nhlanhla Dube, eyeing the Lobengula constituency’ has been embarking on door-to-door campaigns urging the residents to rally behind his party.

Dube told Southern Eye that the party’s candidates had been grouped in teams to drum up support for the party.

“The campaigns are co-ordinated at national level. All constituencies are team-based,” he said.

“We have the aspiring councillor, member of the national assembly and those included in the party list on a proportional representation format,” Dube said.

“They will be moving as a team campaigning for votes, particularly votes for the councillor and member of the national assembly and also for the party and president.

“For those included on the party list, they need large numbers of people to vote for the party to make it.”

Dube had earlier posted on the social network site Facebook saying: “In a short while I will be leading an army from Njube/Lobengula to Mpopoma for a door-to-door recruitment and campaign exercise.

“We are supporting the MDC woman candidate in that constituency. We are energising Duduzile Dube.”

The MDC spokesperson said they were also revisiting some areas that were not covered in their initial door-to-door campaign.

“It is always part of our strategy to come face -to-face with members of the public so that we sell our ideas and manifesto on a personal level. The response from the people has been very good,” Dube added.

On Facebook, Dube said his party was gaining ground and would pull a surprise in the election.
