Broke MDC-T begs for $1 Ecocash donations

THE MDC which is broke has started the New Year begging for cash.

In an advertisement, the party is asking members to donate $1 each through an EcoCash number to allow it to “finish what we started. By sending just $1 to the EcoCash number above, always remember you are taking part in a journey to real change,” reads the advertisement.

MDC-T spokesperson Obert Gutu said there was nothing wrong in raising money. “The $1 donation was an appeal made several months ago requesting members to bankroll the party,” he said. Gutu said the party could survive on its own without donor funds. “The party does not have to rely on donor funds to run its activities and programmes,” he said.

“We are a home-grown political party benchmarked on the principles of social democracy and pan-Africanism.” Gutu said MDC-T had its own funding sources that enabled the party to function. “We get our funding from the money due to us in terms of the Political Parties Finance Act as well as from the underwriting fees and subscriptions made by party members,” he said.

The government failed to release the MDC-T’s financial quota from the Political Parties Finance Act last year, further compounding the party’s position. IHarare
