MDC leader Nelson Chamisa says country will plunge into ‘unprecedented chaos’ if party is defrauded of victory in Monday’s election
Nelson Chamisa steps down from the podium. The crowd is still cheering. Promises have been made, slogans shouted, jokes cracked and prayers said. The campaign is drawing to an end. The rally in Chitungwiza, a sprawling satellite town of the capital Harare, is one of the loudest, and one of the last.
“We are closer to victory and to change than ever in the history of our country,” Chamisa told the sea of supporters who had waited for hours under the warm winter sun. “This is about light against darkness, and we represent the light; happiness and hunger, the future against the past.”
