Biti and Renewal Team would discredit coalition, MDC-T tells Mujuru

THE MDC-T has warned ousted Vice President Joice Mujuru against joining hands with the Renewal Team, saying doing so would not “add value” to the coalition.

This comes after the Mujuru faction revealed that they had met with opposition political parties interested in “democracy” including former finance Minister Tendai Biti’s MDC Renewal Team to discuss possible ways of collaboration.

Members of the Mujuru faction said their aim was to remove the “paralysis organization” meaning Mugabe’s government from power in the next election hence the open invitation for all likeminded individuals, organizations and political parties.

But the MDC-T says Mujuru and crew should not consider Biti’s group as a political partner in the struggle to dislodge Mugabe as that would be a waste of time.

The MDC-T, whose leaders have met with the Mujuru camp, appears not interested in forming a coalition with the former vice president if she entertains the Renewal Team.

“The so-called MDC Renewal project is dead in the water. It's a project that died before it was born. They have no numbers on the ground,” MDC-T spokesperson Obert Gut u told NewZimbabwe.com in Harare on Sunday.

“Why would Joice Mujuru want to associate herself with a ragtag grouping of failed and unpopular politicians? Remember, politics is a game of numbers”.

Last week the MDC Renewal split over many issues including the proposed coalition with the Mujuru faction.

Elton Mangoma, the party’s treasurer general, announced the split following his suspension from the MDC Renewal Team on allegations of hiring thugs to beat up a junior member and of conducting an adulterous affair with the wife of that same man.
