The opposition MDC led by Nelson Chamisa says it plans to erect a life-sized statue of its late founding leader Morgan Tsvangirai at the party’s headquarters in Harare, and is calling on artists to submit proposals.
The statue will be erected before the end of this year.
This was revealed by the party’s secretary-general Chalton Hwende.
“The MDC is calling on artists who can make a life-size statue of our founding leader Morgan Richard Tsvangirai to submit their proposals and bids by October 30.
“Plans are at an advanced stage; the statue will be erected at the party’s headquarters in Harare before year-end,” Hwende told the Daily News.
Tsvangirai, who led the MDC since its formation in September 1999, died on 14 February last year after having been at the helm for nearly 20 years.
He was immediately replaced by Nelson Chamisa, a former youth leader of the party as well as ICT Minister in the Government of National Unity.
Recently, the MDC has also been sprucing up the interior and exterior looks of its headquarters, with a whole new paint job following years of neglect.Send us feedback by CLICKING HERE or, better still, CLICK HERE TO JOIN ONE OF OUR WHATSAPP GROUPS for the latest news!
