MMD remains robustly committed to rise from the ashes and re-establish its rightful role in the political arena and conversation. We are determined to rebuild. We are determined to succeed. We fully understand that a singular victory or loss should not define us or our future. We can only lose if we give up. The good news is that we shall not give up.
There is no challenge which is insurmountable. MMD has been tried and tested to the hilt over the past two and a half years. It has been a journey for the brave. Contrary to some opponents’ view that the troubles which engulfed us are as a result of weak leadership, students of history have concluded that without a strong and resilient leadership, MMD could have disintegrated within a year.
“This is time to initiate Africa’s most ambitious educational project which should include up-skilling entire communities, all villages, compounds, shanties, suburbs and entire nation states in computer skills for instance. An educational system which highlights our values as a people. An education which is original; An education which does not exhort the Queen of England above our own Zulu King.”
My belief is that, “The equitable delivery of goods and services to any people depends on the morality and integrity of its leaders.” The bible explains it in a clearer way. “When the righteous rule, people rejoice. But when the unrighteousness rule, people mourn.”
A man is judged by his character. The Bible simply puts it this way, “You shall know them by their fruit.” In the same vein, we judge the character and the effectiveness of a political party on the basis of their past behaviour, on their manifesto, their promises and on the expectations they have created in the minds of the electorate.
