THE MDC will erect a life-size sculpture at the party's headquarters in Harare in honour of its founding president - the late Morgan Tsvangirai - before the end of the year, the party's secretary-general Chalton Hwende has said.

Hwende said the statue of the late Tsvangirai, who died on February 14, 2018, is part of the opposition party's 20th anniversary celebrations.

"The MDC is calling on artists who can make a life-size statue of .... Tsvangirai to submit their proposals and bids by October 30.

"Plans are at an advanced stage; the statue will be erected at the party's headquarters in Harare before year-end," said Hwende yesterday.

Tsvangirai succumbed to cancer of the colon aged 65 after leading the MDC since its formation in 1999. He was buried at his rural home in Humanikwa Village in Buhera.

He made history by beating then president Robert Mugabe in the 2008 general election. He became the country's Prime Minister until 2013.
