The Welshman Ncube led MDC is scheduled to be holding the 2nd Young People's Convention on the 16th of June.

This was resolved by the MDC Youth Assembly Byo Province on Thursday at their 5th Provincial Executive meeting.

The executive resolved that the convention will discuss, the Economic Decline, Review of 2013 Constitution, Service Delivery, the National Economic Blue Print, Information Dissemination, Education System and Review of a Post Independence Zimbabwe.

Contacted for comment Mhlonitshwa Shephard Dube who is the youth provincial chairperson, said "The upcoming convention is meant to come up with resolutions that will not only see the party moving forward but the entire nation of Zimbabwe."

"The convention will take radical positions that will force everyone to cooperate with us for as long as the person cares about the well being of Zimbabweans. We know the ZANU PF led government is filled with corrupt old grannies and they mighty choose not to listen to our suggestions."

"We are prepared to carry out massive demonstrations and unprecedented protests until the voice the young people is heard."

The convention delegates will include all party youth structures from Bulawayo, what however is a shock is the number of churches that are expected to attend. Among the church groupings is Days of Glory Ministries, which is one of Bulawayo's biggest youth led Interdenominational grouping.

Contacted for comment, the leader of Days of Glory Mr Iroy Mbewe, said "We are not members of the MDC but preachers of the Gospel of Jesus and for far too long the Christians have been evading politics saying it is dirty and this has left us in the cold when it comes to decision making. We believe the youth convention is a good platform for us to also voice our views. And you never know we mighty also win some souls for our loving Lord Jesus Christ.
