MDC Alliance President, Nelson Chamisa, was forced to abandon his trip around Matabeleland yesterday, after he received a cold reception from locals.
Only curious school children followed Chamisa as he passed through the neighborhoods with his team.
It was the actions of a quick thinking Daniel Molekele, who organized transport and bussed some vendors from Matabeleland North to come and welcome Chamisa, that saved the day.
A source told Gambakwe Media that Chamisa had to drive back for some distance to go to the bushy area where he met the vendors, who sang a few songs for him, while Ostallos took a short video, before he returned to his hotel in Bulawayo.
Speaking to Gambakwe Media, a local resident said Matabeleland is now awake and will never be used by people from Harare again for votes.
The angry locals said Chamisa ‘s local candidates and MPs were all based in South Africa and have never been to the area since the 2018 elections.
We will rather vote ZANU-PF, which has structures on the ground. Chamisa’s MP was not even here to welcome him because he stays in South Africa!
