MDM’s opponents “afraid to face us”

Rival parties damage offices of the Mozambique Democratic Movement (MDM) because they are afraid to face it politically, accused the national director of the MDM campaign, Lutero Simango, on 20 September.

Speaking at a rally in the outlying Beira suburb of Chingussura, Simango, who is the older brother of the mayor of Beira and MDM presidential candidate, Daviz Simango, urged MDM members not to be intimidated. Violence against the party was not going to stop people voting for the MDM, he declared.

The attacks on MDM offices, and the destruction of MDM election material “are clear signs that others standing in these elections are afraid to confront our organisation”.

He did not say who he had in mind – but on 13 September, the day the election campaign began, a group of people believed to be supporters of the ruling Frelimo Party attacked an MDM office in the southern town of Chokwe, smashing the windows and stealing property.

On 19 September an MDM rally and concert in the Maputo neighbourhood of Mafalala had to switch venue because Frelimo youths had occupied the field that the MDM says it had booked from Maputo City Council. There have also been occasional clashes between members of the MDM and of the main opposition party, Renamo, which expelled Daviz Simango from its ranks a year ago.

“Because they’re afraid of the MDM, they even burn our offices and vandalise our equipment. Even so nobody will stop our votes”, said the candidate’s brother. “We shall continue working until Daviz Simango reaches the presidency”.

The MDM Beira delegate told AIM that the Chingussura event was the third major rally the MDM had held in Beira. She was confident that the population of Beira trusts in the MDM and its presidential candidate as guarantors in turning a new page in the country’s social, political and economic life.
