Former Cabinet Minister and MDC T bigwig Elias Mudzuri while speaking to the Daily News said all factions in the MDC T and the MDC Alliance should sit down and talk and accept their weaknesses because they cannot approach President Mnangagwa if they are still divided to dialogue with him about trying to find a solution to the Zimbabwean crisis.
As senior leaders in the MDC, we need to sit down and talk. Everyone must accept his or her weaknesses, and we must tell each other the truth.
Unity is the best way forward … we cannot continue fighting like this. We are one family, we worked together for 20 years and it’s easy for us to work together again. In Shona they say mukanetsana siyai peukama.
Building unity is a process and it’s not a one day thing. I think before 2023 we will talk together and find common ground,
So, there is a need to talk to each other before we engage Zanu PF. At the moment the opposition is divided. So, Zanu PF will take advantage of that.
We must be able to talk to Zanu PF because we are all Zimbabweans and we must build this country together. Factionalism must end so that we work to build our party. As Zimbabweans, we must work to build strong government institutions.
The infighting started in March this year when the supreme court declared Khupe the MDC T rightful leader and the faction led by Khupe started recalling legislators and councilors elected using the MDC Alliance cards till Khupe herself came back into the Parliament as the leader of the opposition through proportional representation.
