MDC-T team sets up structures

THE MDC-T renewal team is now moving to set up structures countrywide as it continues to push for a grand coalition with other parties.

The Zimbabwe Independent witnessed some MDC-T renewal team activists engaging youths in Warren Park as it prepares to set up structures.

Despite the move, spokesperson for the team Joseph Mafume maintained they were still part of the MDC-T.

“We have been moving from district to district auditing the structures so that we know who is moving with us and who is not with us,” he said.

“We want to be clear as we prepare for an all-structures meeting in about two weeks. The all-structures meeting will be held before the convention with other parties.”

Mafume said similar meetings had been held in all provinces other than Mashonaland Central, where MDC-T has been traditionally weak.
Asked if the renewal team’s move was not akin to coming up with parallel structures, Mafume said they were merely ensuring there was renewal while also consolidating their position.

“We are rebranding and renewing the party. The party is an organic organisation. It’s just like in the animal kingdom; if a snake sheds its skin and gets a new one, it doesn’t mean it’s a new snake,” he said.

“Mafume said talks around the formation of a grand coalition had reached a formal stage as the parties involved were now discussing on a technical level how the coalition would work.

He said a coalition, and not individualism, was important in defeating Zanu PF “which itself is also a coalition of Zanu PF, Zapu, Zipra and Zanla forces”.

    Those who are professional and political enough cannot form a coalition with these confused powerhungry idiots. They messed up big time. We thought we are set to remove Morgan come congress but they started hunting him before it was time. They will have structures with no support. Like trying to take supporters for Black Rhinos, ZPC kariba, FC Platinum and Buffaloes to counter Dembare supporters, they will not even fill a bay.

    Taura hako wamaromo kuma waamai. Their last rallies had less than 50 people in attendance. There was a process thru which mogiza could be removed not power grab like they did. the congress wa going to give them legitimacy. politics is about people and not their supposed ‘principles’. they messed and they are going into political oblivion. they were supposed to convince pple that mogiza must go not this idiocy by pple who claim to be lawyers. i am beginning to think lawyers seldomly make good politicians!!! its the end for them

    Mdc-t supporters had great respect for Tendai Biti but he disappointed them by his deception.Mr Biti mistook the applause he would get from supporters at rallies for popularity and yet no-people respected the role that you were playing in the Mdc-t family.It does not need a political scientist to tell that this project is dead, zimbabweans will not be hoodwinked as easy as that, ask Mr Ncube and Mr Sikhala.

    I dont understand this,mafume is saying they are rebranding,biti is saying we are forming a party of democrats and nkomo is saying im th interim leader of mdct.meanwhile biti says we will use the t of mdc for a tactical reason and holland is th interim leader and yet he is the one at the forefront.Im confused now.when is th hearing fo chamatama and copac?This is a ploy to weaken mdc.

  6. Huggins says:

    Biti is naive. Trust him at your own peril

  7. Doubtful Nehwede says:

    It’s good that MDC Renewal Team is building its structures. We are for many political contestants. However, let us remain vigilant to the fact that the electoral playing field is not tampered with as was done in the past.

    They have aready covered 9 provinces without any media coverage? Or is it because they barred the media from their meetings lest the low turn-out should be known everywhere? Thot these guys were going everywhere since they have the capability to garner support. Go to Mash Central cdes. i want you to prove your mettle. So who said your break-away group is strong in all other provinces? Are 50 pple in Manicaland considered a stronghold? And those few in Masvingo? Also a stronghold? So were you sweet-talking those youths by promising them money since you have it? Ma1 chaiwo!
