Hi everyone,

The appeal below comes from the MDC.



To enable the MDC to properly supervise the elections over June 24 - 25, 2000, we are in desperate need of logistical assistance. We are sure that the importance of this exercise cannot be overstated.

A) We need volunteers to supply and staff up to 30 convoys of 2 - 3 vehicles each. Each vehicle would need approximately 2 people. These convoys will be used to assist in the deployment of polling agents into rural constituencies. Please phone 091-241197 or 091-220541 for specific details in this regard.

B) We need to borrow cell phones - lots of them. These phones will be used at each polling station where cell phone service is available. A receipting/recording system will be in place to document the equipment loaned.

C) We need to borrow hand-held radios (line of sight). This equipment will be provided to each car in the convoys described in A) above. A receipting/recording system will be in place to document the equipment loaned.

All equipment can be taken to the MDC Support Centre on the 8th Floor Gold Bridge, Eastgate S/Centre cnr 2nd St/Speke Ave. If this is not possible, please contact us on 091-367151/2/3 or 091-241197 or 091-220541 to arrange collection.

Any queries regarding any of the above, call 091-241197 or 091-220541.

Thank you for your generosity and belief in a new and dynamic future for Zimbabwe, through the Movement for Democratic Change.
