While the process of the roadmap is being dealt with, there are many software and hardware issues we have to address if we are to hold a credible election, key among them the many reforms that we have agreed on as political parties and as Principals but remain unimplemented.
MDC President Tsvangirai said Thursday addressing journalists on the minimum conditions for the holding of free and fair elections.
Prime Minister's speech at the 2013 ZIBC in Bulawayo
We will all insist on a free and fair election as a precondition for the sustainability of business during and after the election itself taking into cognisance that any disturbances to the economy will affect the consumer, who is a worker to labour, a client to business and a voter to the politician.
The consumers’ interests are therefore more supreme than the interests of all of us and it is those interests of the ordinary person that must be protected by all. Prime Minister Tsvangirai said Wednesday in opening remarks read on his behalf by Deputy Prime Minister Thokozani Khupe at the Zimbabwe International Business Conference in Bulawayo.
My attention has been drawn to a report in today’s The Herald , 5th April 2013, whichsuggests that daggers have been drawn against my person, in my capacity as Prime Minister Tsvangirai's "legal adviser", apparently for giving "wrong legal advice" to the Prime Minister in an elections-related case that is before the High Court.
The targeting of my Office is reprehensible and is meant to harass and intimidate the nation ahead of the election, now that we are done with the referendum. Prime Minister Tsvangirai said Monday while addressing journalists on the arrest of officials from his communications office on Sunday.
