Comrades you are our brothers and sisters in every sense. The historical ties between Uganda and Zimbabwe are the same.
The struggles and aspirations of our people are not any different. We share a common heritage only separated by colonial borders.
Throughout history what has united our people most is confronting the common enemy.
We are united by history, destiny and the most common enemy dictatorship. A mission to confront dictatorship an enemy that keeps you awake at night is the same enemy that keeps us awake, what hurts you hurts us.
Viva MDC Viva MDC
