Ncube quits CODE, says not coerced

THE Welshmen Ncube led MDC says they were not influenced by anyone to resign from the Coalition of Democrats (CODE).

MDC on Thursday announced that they had dumped the coalition of opposition parties they founded in May last year.

This was barely a week after Ncube signed an Alliance with the MDC-T in Highfied.

MDC founded CODE together with Mavambo Kusile Dawn led by Simba Makoni, Elton Mangoma’s Renewal Democrats of Zimbabwe, Democratic Assembly for Restoration and Empowerment and Zimbabweans United for Democracy.

Tendai Biti’s People’s Democratic Party, Dumiso Dabengwa’s Zapu and former Vice President Joice Mujuru’s Zimbabwe People First later joined the coalition.

In an interview with NewZimbabwe.com in Harare, Friday, MDC spokesperson Kurauone Chihwayi, said the decision to dump CODE was not influenced by anyone.

“We resigned on our own accord and no one inside or outside CODE advised or forced us out of the coalition of Democrats, this was a national council resolution not an individual decision,” said Chihwayi.

“We amicably parted ways with our friends in Code because we cannot belong to two coalitions and we respect our colleagues in Code and wish all of them success in their political endeavours,” he said.

The formation of the MDC Alliance is  threatening  the future of  CODE  with more pact members reportedly contemplating jumping ship as shown by the coalition’s chairperson Tendai Biti’ s MDC Alliance signing  attendance last week. 

The Joice Mujuru led National People’s Party this week invited MDC Alliance chairman Morgan Tsvangirai to their party’s national convention in Harare, a development which further threatens the survival of CODE.

Efforts by NewZimbabwe.com to contact CODE chairperson Tendai Biti were fruitless as his mobile phone could not be reached.
