MASVINGO — Deputy Prime Minister Arthur Mutambara, the leader of an MDC offshoot, has his political career hanging by a thread after the party national council passed a vote of no confidence against him, demanding that he be recalled from his government post.

In a clear coup, the national council also demands the withdrawal of the court case against Welshman Ncube, who heads another MDC formation, who is in a leadership wrangle with Mutambara.

In a Press statement, MDC-M, as Mutambara’s grouping is known, through national organising secretary Rabson Mashiri, reportedly the DPM’s most trusted lieutenant, said they resolved not to recognise the robotics professor as party president anymore.

“MDC-M national council passed a vote of no confidence against Arthur Mutambara, hence he be recalled from the DPM post,” reads the statement.

“The national council resolved that the national chair acts as the leader of the party until after congress. The party will forge an alliance with other democratic forces for elections.”

The resolutions were reached last Saturday, when the national council met in Harare.

In a tacit admission that the group is now backing Ncube, Mutambara’s national council resolved to drop the court case against him.

Ncube and Mutambara’s leadership wrangles spilled into the courts after the latter refused to accept defeat at the party’s national congress held last year.

“The court case against the Prof Welsh Ncube-led MDC be withdrawn unconditionally and immediately for us to focus on party building and the election campaign,” the statement read.

The national council also resolved to dismiss party MPs who defected to the MDC formation led by Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai.
“The MPs who defected to the MDC-T are automatically dismissed from the party,” the party said, as it resolved to engage other parties in the formation of a coalition.

“The national organising secretary should engage other parties for a possible working relationship or memorandum of understanding,” read the resolutions.

Contacted for a comment, Mutambara dismissed the resolutions as “rubbish”.
“Just ignore it — that is rubbish,” he said, before terminating the telephone conversation.

    • u Please don’t waste your time talking politics while others are enjoying their lives with money without talking politics. See how this Zimbabwean poor woman became a millionaire just by buying and selling accidented cars. Very interesting idea. Go to (ACCIDENTEDCARS.COM) to see the methods and companies she was using to do that. (ACCIDENTEDCARS.COM) a very simple idea but a very powerful one, Wake up Africans

  2. mutambara is not cleaver enough because he lacks direction.today is in ncube camp tomorrow in mashiri camp ,after tomorrow zanu no stability.i wonder whether he is educated.

  4. Most idiotic statement of the year:

    “The MPs who defected to the MDC-T are automatically dismissed from the party,” the party said, as it resolved to engage other parties in the formation of a coalition.

  5. Someone shuld advise Mutambara to leave the political scene quietly before all the reputation he has is gone or else let him just join Zanu pf.

  6. “Ndevere ngarife” that was our slogan when we deployed to deal with them in the 80′s and I Will never regret killing these foreigners they hould be harassed until they relocate back to zululand and the Kalanga should relovcate back to Botswana They should follow their brothers who relocated back like Mthuli,nkosana, sifiso davengwa,peter moyo and all unpatriotic Shona people should also follow them on the great track of the 21st century down south. No ndebere will ever rule this country, we know that Mdc is their puppet why was it formed soon after nkomos’s death. I was part of gugurahundi and also worked in Magnet house in bulawayo I played my party guys lets deal with their fronts the mdc once and for all. do you know how I toss around with fomer zipra guys here in bulawayo If i say jump they say how high boss, I send them to kill any one, now we used them to establish CIO bases in south africa we also kill the Ndevere”s there in Jozi they are very fearful of shona guy. All the Malayitsha’s are now part of us. Pamberi na gushungo he shall rule until his final second on earth

    All Shonas who behave like Ndevers will be treated as such, and will be dealt with the same way.

    • kedo if you have a legal way of assisting on relocation please give us the address surely we will be very happy to do so without delay the earlier tha better

    • Your attempt at dividing the people of Zimbabwe is misguided. Everyone came from somewhere. some came from Rwanda and the Great lakes region, some came from south of the Limpopo. The San are still living in Tsholotsho and are the indigenous indigenous. what would you do if they told you to trek back to Rwanda. You need to read about the Bantu migration then you will know where you came from.

  7. he was doomed the minute he failed to honor the his word of stepping down democratically if he lost the elections at the congress,he decided intead,foolishly,to be mislead by Mugabe and zpf into thinking he had a political life with them,alas!,..they wont lift a finger to help him,let alone admit him into their midst, watch….usetshaye phansi ngenkamanzi.thina asijiki!

  8. Kanti Welshman angithi wamdonethela iZanu yini uMutambara? Yindaba engafuni ukuya kuZanu? Uyesaba ukuba yistatistic?

    • Last election Mtambara and his then trusted sidekick Job Sikala lost very badly. Situation won’t change this time round. Mtambara is an unelectable buffoon…

  11. Join hands with anyone you want but be careful kurohwa neshamhu namwari by opting for
    Ngochani mentality parties

  12. Political robotics. Kikikikikikiki. Mutambara has never been a leader. He is just a madman par excellence. He must go back and teach robotics. Politics is not robotic and obviously not his domain. Ncube is a God destined President of Zimbabwe. Like it or hate it, ndakuudzai.

  13. Mutambara huya ujoine party yangu inonzi Komboni Yatsva African National Union(KYANU). Tinokupa post yaVice Secretary General.

  14. So the MDC will now be spit even further MDCT, MDCN, MDCM and MDC4. Zimbabweans take your pick. Wait there are others that will join the circus and then with Zanu PF also in the run, you have confusion.

  15. Mutambara ibenzi ringazivi zvarinoita, ngariburitswa muMDC
    Vanhu vakaita saMutambara havakwanise kutonga nyika because they are confused, now Zim needs someone knowledgeable to the needs of the country.

  16. job welldone to oust mutambara, he has always been a sellout no wonder his comments were zanu pf aligned. He is no politician. Robbotics dzacho hapana zvadzirikuti shandira no space station for zim. Mutambara and the like of lovemore madhuku should be done with once and for all. Especially musoro banga uyo anonzi madhuku mutengesi kwayenda mhepo ndokwaaendawo. Inzara yese inomudaro. We jus hoping for a grand coalition between tsvangirai and ncube with the aid of mavambo and zapu that way we will oust the 89 turning 90 young boy from kutama village.
