With Robert Mugabe's resignation, the transfer of power in Zimbabwe is still uncertain. While parties came together to remove Mugabe, questions on who will have power are raised.
For Obert Gutu, spokesperson of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), Zimbabwe have to look to building strong institutions to have true democracy.
We have always said a change of leadership is not the only true test of democracy. The true test of democracy is to have strong institutions.— Obert Gutu, spokesperson for MDC
Gutu says that the MDC wants a strong, independent judiciary, parliament and chapters of the commissions including the election and human rights commission.
He adds that strong institutions rather than strong personalities will help shape a democratic Zimbabwe.
Under Robert Mugabe, we have cultivated a culture of very strong personalities with very weak institutions. We'd rather have a weak personality with strong institutions.— Obert Gutu, spokesperson for MDC
