Benevolence Taisekwa

– As the 2018 election preparations are fast emerging, MDC-T Manicaland provincial youth secretary general Benevolence Taisekwa said the youth must not lose the opportunity to shape a better future for themselves in 2018.
Speaking to TellZim News, Taisekwa said he had taken it upon himself to use different mobilisation strategies so that the youth can vote for change next year.
"In Manicaland, we have already started engaging the youth through sport so as to directly lobby them on the importance of voting. Young people should not merely lament the bad leadership but fail to vote.
"Sport has a big unifying influence and I believe the message is clearer through such activities. It is better to vote for a leader you know would be accountable to you than lose the privilege by denying yourself the right to vote," Taisekwa said.
Taisekwa said the first mini soccer gala managed to pull about 200 youths from Buhera Central, adding that political affiliation was not an issue as long as the youth agreed on the need for voting peacefully.
"Our first engagement was quite successful and we managed to spend the day with about 200 youths. We don't mind one's political affiliations. Our main focus is to encourage the youths to vote," added Taisekwa.
On whether he had ambition for higher political office, Taisekwa said he was there primarily to work for the party and would only run for political office if party processes allow him to do so.politics
