I am not a Ndebele leader am a Zimbabwean leader: Welshman Ncube

I am not a Ndebele leader am a Zimbabwean leader: Welshman Ncube
Published: 11 February 2012 (4780 Views)
THE leader of the Movement for Democratic Change, Professor Welshman Ncube has said that he is not a Ndebele but national leader hailing from the Midlands province.

He was asked:   Do you think you are going to win the presidential elections as a Ndebele leader from Midlands given the tribal voting trends and number of Shona-speaking provinces in Zimbabwe?

Ncube is quoted as having responded:

"I am not a Ndebele leader. I am a Zimbabwean leader who is Ndebele and who hails from the Midlands province. I am sure that you don't call Robert Mugabe a Shona leader from Mashonaland West nor do you call Morgan Tsvangirai a Shona leader from Manicaland or for that matter Simba Makoni, a Shona leader from Manicaland.

"You call them Zimbabwean leaders, as they surely are. Yes I believe that I am going to win the presidential election as a Zimbabwean leader ready to lead his country and with the capacity to bring about real change.

" As a party we have the policies that speak to the issues that are affecting Zimbabweans, policies that will address the multiplicity of challenges that face the country. We are a party of hope, a party of justice and fairness that believes in equity and equality for every Zimbabwean and  this is part of what we are offering to the people of Zimbabwe," he said.

Prof Ncube's MDC is alleged to be having its stronghold in Matabeleland.
