This comes as Tsvangirai’s alliance with the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions faction led by Lovemore Matombo, the National Constitutional Assembly (NCA) and the Zimbabwe National Students’ Union (Zinasu) is disintegrating.
“The prospects are very high of me teaming up with many Zimbabweans,” said Makoni. “Tsvangirai could be one of those millions of Zimbabweans that we can team up with.”
MDC-T spokesperson Douglas Mwonzora said his party was interested in alliances with progressive forces.
“The MDC will want to work with all progressive and like-minded Zimbabweans for democracy,” he said.
Matombo said the trade union’s alliance with the MDC-T had weakened over policy differences.
NCA spokesperson Madock Chivasa agreed, saying the MDC-T had double-standards.
Zinasu spokesperson Zechariah Mushawatu said alliances should be based on mutual understanding and congruent policies .
