The Welshman Ncube-led MDC has blasted Zanu PF chairman Simon Khaya Moyo for undermining partners in the coalition government after the latter accused them of allegedly trying to derail the holding of elections this year.
Moyo last Friday claimed the two MDC formations were delaying the constitution-making process to scuttle the holding of elections this year.
MDC spokesperson Nhlanhla Dube said: “Any party in the GNU cannot be blamed for the delay in the constitution-making process anyhow. It is obvious to every party that the delay has been due to funds shortages. We are surprised and shocked to hear that a party chairman uses such language which destroys peace in the GNU.”
Speaking at the launch of a Pan-African magazine in Bulawayo, Moyo said the
constitution-making process must be completed soon to pave way for the elections which he said must be held this year without fail.
“This animal called GNU is not working and it must be put to an end as a matter of urgency. We must have elections this year to end this uncomfortable arrangement,” said Moyo.
Dube said most of the problems affecting the GNU were caused by the partners’ failure to implement 24 of the remaining unfulfilled issues in the Global Political Agreement.
He described Moyo’s blame game as a fallacy and desperate politicking.
