Tsvangirai is a hero but we need new ideas- Gorden Moyo


Gorden Moyo, the former Bulawayo provincial chairman of the Movement for Democratic Change who switched to the Renewal Team last month, says Morgan Tsvangirai is a hero, but people need new ideas and new strategies. An organisation cannot be named after a person even if that is Tsvangirai. “Make no mistake Tsvangirai worked very hard. Morgan is a hero who was the first opposition leader to shake ZANU- PF and Mugabe much to the amazement of the world. It is impossible to document this country’s history without mentioning his name. We don’t want to do like ZANU-PF which doesn’t recognise people and institutions that contributed to the country’s political development. ZANU doesn’t recognise ZAPU in the liberation struggle even in history books used in the school curriculum,” Moyo said. “I respect Tsvangirai but we need new ideas and new strategies. When an organization fails you change its leadership or its culture. We believe in systems not personalities like ZANU- PF members who think Mugabe is ZANU- PF and vice versa. We cannot allow an organisation in modern democracy to be called using people’s names even if it is Tsvangirai.” The MDC is holding its congress next month and Tsvangirai is expected to retain leadership of the party.
