News:Tsvangirai And Mujuru Unite For Gweru Protest

<vote /> Leaders of the Zimbabwe People First and the MDC-T joined hands today to stage a peaceful march in Gweru to protest against the continuing social, economic and political problems in Zimbabwe.

The march began just before midday, from an open space on the northern outskirts of the central business with the MDC-T's top leadership including vice president Thokozani Khupe and newly appointed vice presidents Elias Mudzuri and Nelson Chamisa. Morgan Tsvangirai, his wife, and People First leaders Joice Mujuru and former Zanu-PF secretary for administration Didymus Mutasa also joined the protesters.

There had been fears that the MDC-T march would be a flop as ZFP had a rally scheduled for Mkoba Stadium outside town.

Mujuru said,

Today is a historic day for us. It is a day when the MDC and People First are coming together … We want the people of Zimbabwe to work as one and not to be divided. Today we found a way of working together to deal with the issues affecting us. Everyone is being affected by these issues. We want to weed out all the corruption and nonsensical things that are happening in our midst.

After the speeches, the entourage of both the MDC-T and ZimPF leaders made its way to Mkoba Stadium for the ZPF rally.
