A senior MDC Alliance Official who contested in the 2018 general elections has defected to Zanu PF saying the opposition outfit is being led by selfish individuals whose mindset is retrogressive.
Zaka West national assembly candidate in the 2018 general elections, Dr William Zivenge and his campaign team have deserted the opposition outfit and joined Zanu PF.
Speaking at a Zanu PF inter-district meeting held in Zaka this Sunday, some of the new recruits said they joined the ruling party after realizing, “the opposition has nothing to offer the people, its all talk and no action in regards to uplifting the country an the livelihoods of citizens in general. This country is ours and it belongs to us, not Londoners,” said Dr Zivenge.
Zanu PF Masvingo Provincial Chairman, Ezra Chadzamira said the ruling party is committed to improving livelihoods through developmental programs.
“The prodigal son has returned home and we welcome him saying the people’s party Zanu PF is about the betterment of people’s lives and we work in result-oriented frameworks,” said honorable Chadzamira.
Speaking at the same occasion, Chief Nhema expressed gratitude to the government for spearheading various developmental programs which are benefiting ordinary people.
The inter-district meeting deliberated on disseminating information on Covid-19 amid increasing local transmissions countrywide.
This is not the first time the MDC has been dumped. In February, Ambrose Mutinhiri’s ex wife Tracy Mutinhiri resigned from Nelson Chamisa’s MDC Alliance party.
She was a member of Zanu PF and a former deputy minister before her expulsion from the party in August 2011.
After her expulsion, Mutinhiri inevitably lost both her portfolios as deputy minister of Labour and Social Welfare and legislator for Marondera East.
Mutinhiri joined the MDC in May 2012. Thereafter she contested for a parliamentary seat against former husband Ambrose Mutinhiri and lost. There were mixed reactions from the MDC T camp and Zanu PF over the crossing of floors by Tracy Mutinhiri. The MDC stated that they would welcome her with open arms after her ill-treatment from Zanu PF while Zanu PF insisted that she was a traitor and deserved what she got.
