National Deputy Spokesperson, Movement for Democratic Change Alliance


Gift Ostallas Siviza is the national deputy spokesperson for the Movement for Democratic Change Alliance, a social democratic party founded in September 1999. He is passionate about educating young people about key national issues so they remain informed politically and ideologically. Gift believes that the call for justice and equality is at the center of community mobilization and is inspired by movements that unite communities around a clear program of action, such as #BlackLivesMatter and #ZimbabweLivesMatter. He is currently leading the #OneMillionVotes youth movement, which focuses on a more scientific approach to voter mobilization, education, and training in the run-up to Zimbabwe's 2023 general election.
