Zanu PF spokesperson Rugare Gumbo yesterday dismissed recent claims by ex-party Women’s League commissar Tracy Mutinhiri that she regretted her stint with the former liberation movement.

Gumbo described Mutinhiri’s utterances as “sour grapes”.
Mutinhiri was fired by Zanu PF last year on accusations of being “too close” to the MDC-T leadership before she eventually crossed the floor to join the former opposition party.
She told MDC-T supporters at the party’s 13th anniversary celebrations in Bulawayo on Saturday, she regretted her stint with Zanu PF because of its culture of violence and corruption.
“I have come to the MDC-T forever because everyone in this party knows God and fears God. If a party fears God it does not kill people, it does not abduct people and it does not engage in corruption. The God fearing party would not allow a situation where youths have no jobs and only what we see around are youths selling pest killers because of lack of employment. Zanu PF’s time came and now it has gone.”
But Gumbo said: “It’s just a sour grapes attitude. When she was in Zanu PF she used to say Zanu PF was the best party and now she is in MDC-T she says MDC-T is the best. Which is which now?
“Whatever she said does not make sense. People must know that Zanu PF is there to stay. OK!”
