A HUDDERSFIELD businessman is returning to Zimbabwe to support the opposition to the country’s veteran leader Robert Mugabe.
Alan Fish, who lives at High Flatts near Birdsedge, will travel to the southern African country to support the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC).
The 57-year-old, who is managing director of water cooler installation firm Cool Water Direct, visited Zimbabwe in April, 2008.
Mr Fish organised a rally attended by 50 MDC supporters at Smith Farm in High Flatts after returning from Africa.
And now he plans to go back to Zimbabwe.
Mr Fish said: “I’m going on April 25 to the MDC congress which they hold every five years. I’ll be there for just over a week.
“I’m hoping to get involved with the politics of the MDC a bit closer.”
The congress will be held in the Zimbabwean city of Bulawayo from April 30 to May 1.
The last time Mr Fish visited the country, the MDC were trying to win presidential and parliamentary elections.
But the party is now in an uneasy coalition with Mr Mugabe’s Zanu-PF party.
