MDC Alliance principal Tendai Biti clams his opposition party has been winning elections since 2002 but the ruling party has been stealing it from them and has vowed to die for their win in the looming election.

Addressing thousands of their party supporters who demonstrated against Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) in Harare yesterday Biti said history of election rigging elections will not repeat its self.

"We are tired of being rigged but we are saying this cold season history will not repeat itself, on 11 March 2002 election ,the MDC led by Morgan Tsvangirai won by 84% but they stole it from us former South African president Thabo Mbeki sent a report which was announced by South African constitutional court that we won that election," said Biti.

"In 2008 election we won by 72%, l announced it before being  sent to Chikurubi prison and we went to courts but nothing came out , on 30 July 2013 the MDC won by 74% but ZANU stole that election."

"We are not going to allow the 30 July 2018 election to be stolen again that is why we are in the streets, we are prepared  to die for this cause , we are prepared to be imprisoned for this cause, we are prepared to die ten times."

He said in some countries there is outcome uncertainty of elections but in Zimbabwe there is procedural uncertainty.

"In some countries like South Africa, America ,India there is uncertainty on the results since they do not know who will win it is outcome uncertainty  but in Zimbabwe there is procedural uncertainty not outcome uncertainty."

"If ZANU PF has nothing to hide it should show us where the ballot paper is coming from, what is the fuss all about, if you have nothing to hide show us biometric voters roll with bio metric features including our ugly faces what do you have to hide," bellowed Biti.

He vowed to warn Mnangagwa on vote rigging saying they will rather die than to let ZANU PF steal elections from them.

"This time around good people we are sending a message to Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa  and ZANU PF that we are not going back we are prepared to die for this cause Zikomo kwambili, thank you very much!" he shouted
