Zanu PF officials have demanded that Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai resigns from Government or face prosecution for possible treason following allegations made in the leaked communications from the United States’ Harare embassy.

Some of the information leaked by Wikileaks suggests that the MDC-T leader privately urged Western countries to maintain sanctions against Zimbabwe while publicly appearing to back their removal.

Zanu PF blames the sanctions for the country’s economic troubles.

"There are only two things that could happen in any civilised democracy, for him to resign not just from Government but public life altogether. He must also be prosecuted for a litany of treasonous acts against the State.

"The only questions about those two things is not whether they should happen but when they are going to happen," Tsholotsho North legislator and former information minister, Professor Jonathan Moyo

Moyo said it was “shocking” that Tsvangirai continued to campaign for the retention of sanctions and for use of unlawful means to change a Government of which he was a senior official.

"As early as 2000 he was actively asking the US to bring troops to Zimbabwe to effect a coup," he said.

Gabriel Chaibva, a former MDC-M official who has since defected to Zanu PF said it was treasonous for Tsvangirai and his party “to craft ZDERA” and continue to call for the retention of sanctions against Zimbabwe.

"This is treasonous and Tsvangirai should be held accountable for his actions. The only sensible thing for him to do now is to resign because more evidence is coming from WikiLeaks.
“(Alternatively), those in the MDC-T must push him out because he is a traitor and has become a liability to the people of Zimbabwe. The quicker he goes, the better," Chaibva said.

He said the country could also call elections in order to “get rid Tsvangirai and his party”.

"There has never been a more compelling reason for elections than there is to get rid of this political party. More importantly when we go for elections, the people of Zimbabwe now know that this man (Tsvangirai) all along has been working to advance the US and British interests in Zimbabwe.

"He never worked for the people of Zimbabwe and this explains why he has been making senseless demands on the so-called outstanding issues. It has been about usurping powers through the back door. Zimbabweans must punish him at the polls for who wants to associate with an American puppet," added Chaibva.
