MDC Alliance leader Morgan Tsvangirai is asking US President Donald Trump for assistance in dealing with President Emmerson Mnangagwa whose government has kept a tight lid on democratic reforms in the run up to next year’s elections.

Tsvangirai has sent off a three member delegation to Trump in Washington DC – part of a global campaign to exert international pressure on President Mnangagwa.

The development comes as the nation readies for the upcoming polls where Tsvangirai will face a military run party whose generals have before sworn that they will never salute him.

Tsvangirai’s three member delegation consists of MDC-T Vice President Nelson Chamisa, People’s Democratic Party (PDP) leader Tendai Biti and MDC president Welshman Ncube, who doubles as MDC Alliance spokesperson.
