DARE intensifies campaigns
The Democratic Assembly for Restoration and Empowerment(DARE) has intensified their parliamentary by-elections campaigns in Harare as they near the fateful 10 June election day.
DARE has four representatives vying for the parliamentary positions namely Ephraim Muzzah for Kuwadzana, Washington Madure for Dzivaresekwa, Reginald Musika for Glen View and Brian Shamu for Kambuzuma. This is DARE’s first ever election since the formation of the party in March 2014 under the leadership of Mr. Gilbert Dzikiti.
Intensive door-to-door campaigns have been carried out in the respective constituencies with the president himself helping the candidates reaching out to residents. The party has received positive responses from the residents in the constituencies they are campaigning for.
However, financial woes have tried to sink the party’s campaign but the candidates have stood strong in the face of difficulty.
“We are facing a lot of problems due to financial problems,” party deputy spokesperson commented,”It is hard to campaign on a zero budget. However our candidates have shown dedication and commitment by parting with the little they had to support their campaign. Some party members have also sacrificed from their pockets but it is not enough.”
Victory looks certain however, for the candidates who have braved the weather and put aside their difficulties and problems to campaign.
