Tsvangirai defuses split

OUTGOING Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai yesterday defused a potential split in his MDC-T party when he gave the greenlight to winners of last week’s elections from his party to take part in parliamentary and council business in order to “guard the party’s zones of autonomy”.

MOSES MATENGA

Impeccable sources last night said the MDC-T leader met with the Harare Provincial Council of his party where he emphasised the need for peace saying his party would not brook any violence, but a pursue legal means to get justice following the “stolen election”.

According to our sources, the meeting took place at the party headquarters, Harvest House, in the capital where the “participation and peace” pronouncements were made.

Tsvangirai reportedly told the winning candidates to “protect” their victory in parliamentary and council elections while the party continued to fight for the return of the “stolen victory”.

There had been fears of a split within the party’s after its National Council meeting at the weekend resolved that the MDC-T would not participate in all forms of government business.

Tsvangirai’s spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka confirmed yesterday’s meeting, but refused to shed detail on what was discussed.

Sources, however, said the MDC-T leader said his party would not take part in government business including Cabinet.

“There is a huge difference between levels of government and levels of State,” one of the sources said. “Parliament and council are levels of State. The Prime Minister wants us to guard our zones of autonomy in Parliament and councils. We will not be part of Cabinet and parastatals, among other government institutions.”

Another source added: “We have said we are going to defend whatever we have got, that which they did not steal. That will not stop us from the battle to take what they stole from us.”

The sources said Tsvangirai told the party members that they should take part in Parliament and council business and start mobilising the people for the future.

“He set targets for us to work on and said we should go out there and work. He said that under the provincial council, the local authority would have its resources and they should use that to develop the city. He said voter registration had to start now no matter when elections would be held,” said another source.

Tsvangirai said teams would be put in place to evaluate the work of councils.

Tsvangirai last week threatened to disengage from all government institutions following what he called a stolen election.

The MDC-T won 49 out of 210 parliamentary seats. Results for council elections are yet to be announced.

      MDC support base is still strong. We will bounce back stronger in 2018. ZIM politics will only be sane after the RGM-era.

      Tsvangirai’s third term as the president of the MDC-T ends in 2014. According to the constitution of the MDC-T, the term of office of party president is maximun 2 five year terms. This was extended to 3 terms for the sake of Tsvangirai. Will we be having a new president for the MDC come 2014?

    Does Tsvangirai have advisors?This is no longer an Inclusive government where there is proportional representation of political parties in government.Gushungo calls the pipe now saka your statement is a farce,null and void.What are levels of state and levels of government.Three arms of state include the legislature,judiciary and Executive saka you wont be participating mugovernment how.The appropriate heading is M.D.C-Tsvangirai makes a U-Turn as always.Previously he said he held the keys to Elections but later said they were rigged.Mr REVERSA JIVE

    • anonymous August 8, 2013 at 1:19 pm #

      Which of course is better than extinction. If they do not participate, their voice will fade.

      The danger is when or if the MDC-T MPs become strong-headed and Tsvangirai fails to direct them, then we’ll have another Sikhala/Ncube split incident.

      Last time it was the Senate seat. This time, potential may happen over a contentious topic in parliament or the appointment of a strong-willed MDC-T MP into Gvt office.

      But participate in parliament, they must! For the sake of the party, its future and those Zimbabweans who voted them in and their voices were not rigged.

    Its not surprising that mdcteaboy has flip-floped, threatening to boycott and then participate. Remember Tsvangirai is nicknamed boycott because of threats to boycott anything he does agree with. In this area, he is consistent and it was expected that he would threaten to reject the election results and later accept them.

  6. Asylum August 8, 2013 at 9:41 am #

    The issue of making sure that each of your supporters is a registered voter is a wise idea. Start registering them now 2 avoid being sabbotaged by these ZANU maggots.

Thats what two thirds is for. Thats what sixty one percent is for. U r not needed. We gat enough of our own. Voter regestration to start immediately. Way to go. Thats the spirit. A split. Yes. I see split and death of mdc. Tsvangirai anosveta ropa mumdc. U will never win with him. He is the greatest enemy of the mdc. Get rid of him. Thats when the split is gonna come in. And another defeat for u again in 2018. See the pattern? Plus morgan is always bluffing and speaks now what we thought of last year. He is slow and his ideas are stale.

    The best thing Morgan can do is resign as leader of MDC since they all seem too scared to fire him. Biti or any other leader will do a better job. The party lost because Morgan was selfish.

        You miss the point jojo. What is it that is new that Tsvangirayi can bring that he has failed to do in 14 yrs? He is not innovative and thats all. Somebody should take over there before you start talking about where ZANU PF is getting it wrong as a political party . If you are mdc then advise your party first to practise that which you think ZANUPF is failing. That way probably youwill have better luck next time. Meanwhile ZANUPF are happy with the current set up. After all it got them more than 2/3 majority and 61%. They are wiser and know how to win.

    Its tsvangirai all the way all those calling on him to resign are zany pf apparatchiks and do not know what morgan stands. Mugabe principled? My foot, is he not the same man who said he would rather negotiate with Britain than tsvangirai so what was happening the last couple of years? Is it not mugabe who called for reconciliation at independence who is hounding white out the country? Is he not the same man who said he does not mind having and bearing sanction who was having the 2 million anti sanctions petition, blair keep your england and let me keep my zimbabwe the geriatric once said but only recently he sent ministers for re engagement with europe. So tell me the hoary man does not vacillate. The only thing that mugabe has been consistent about destroying out country and taking it to his grave, mugabe has been consistent about not resigning and being murderous. New brooms are called for in the mdc what about in zany pf where the president there is 89? The whole party is a tired bunch of geriatrics

    Morgan is the worst thing this country has ever produced. This idiot! Did ZANU PF say they did not have enough human resource to form a cabinet? Where on earth has a government appointed elected persons to parastatals? To do what? This idiot! First he enters into a coalition with his own candidate! Second he is not sure if Morgan Komichi is the vice national chairman or vice national organising secretary. This idiot! But on second thought, he is not an idiot but is surrounded by a bunch of idiots.

      A bad system for Tsvangirai was part of! Where was he when the rigging was happenning? Want to trust such a person with leading a country? If he can be rigged by Mugabe with such purported sophistication, what happens if his really sophisticated ‘friends with money’ were to come here. Do you think we will have a country? I dont think any Zimbabwean wants to go the Maori or the Red Indian way. Try thinking again!

    We tried MDCs Ministers in GNU last time, alas, they simply failed to perform. Examples are abound: (1) they tried to stop the Ethanol project,
    (2) they would attack all infrastructural projects being carried out by Chinese companies,
    (3) they boycotted launching of indigenisation projects
    (4) they boycotted commissioning of road construction equipment,
    (5) they were programmed to threaten the people with suffering,
    (6) they promised civil servants a minimum of us $2000 but to no avail.
    (7) they do not like our diamonds to be sold freely on the international market, but don’t mind how platinum is exported.
    (8) At international fora they attack Zimbambwe instead of defending us,
    (9) when Tsvangirai was in Japan on an investment meeting he was singing about human rights this,human rights that…..
    In short,they never performed to expectations.
    Tsvangirai has no role to play in the new govt, whether in cabinet,e.t.c

    I am a Zanu PF,thru and thru, l love peace and i am for peace. What Morgan has done encourages peace, hope he will improve from that and accept defeat. Thank you Morgan. People shld just give Morgan a breathing space so as to allow him back home. We want to understand his message becoz up to now i don’t know what Morgan is for. Maybe its because he is taking much of his time talking to the outside world. Come back home Morgan, talk to ur poor fellow country men in rural and urban area and then buid ur future plans from there. People want houses, food, small projects. You won in Bulawayo, look after them. Walk in Bulawayo, talk to Bulawayo. Don’t tell us about Gukurahundi to us it doesn’t bring food on the table becoz its past. We want to see things happening in Zambezi pipeline, mining, farming projects and small businesses.

    While we are being bombarded by propaganda that the AU, SADC, SADCPF, ACP, said this or that we have not been availed with the scripts in black and white. For starters why did they not publish the report by AU and SADC. What Zimbabwe is being barred from knowing is that the AU report was adverse. It never said the elections were free, fair and credible. I challenge reporters and news houses to publish the full reports. SADC never endorsed the elections as free and fair. They could not commit themselves to say the elections were fair. The question I ask my learned friends and professors is W.H.Y? If it was fair what was difficult in saying so? There is a propaganda war going on and the Zimbabwean people are not buying it. And we see this in the desperate attempt to rope in failed politicians, unacademic professors and at times outright criminals to glorify a flawed process. Its not only civil society in Zimbabwe, the region and the West that do not see these elections as free and fair so does the AU and SADC. Swallow it even if its bitter because it’s the truth.

    The difference:
    You can attack the person that is the MDC leader without fear of victimisation for doing so, can you attack that of the leader of ZANU PF and feel safe to walk the streets of Zimbabwe? Subtle point to remind us what the battle is about. The right to say as you wish without fear or favour. Maybe one day my brothers and sisters maybe one day.

    Mr. Tsvangirai, clearly stated that all the winning candidates must not celebrate because MDC-T was NOT going to participate…. The National Council went on to endorse that… Then he meets with the Harare Provincial Council and overturns the decision of the National Council a decision based on his earlier “command”…..deja vu……pro senate and anti senate……….. Puliiiiiiz whats going on at MDC-T? Is it the heart or the brain that is used think?

    Fellow Zimbos, timeover to scold, fight verbally, waste energy and scream at each other. Its over…sanctions backfired, homosexuality…eish….vanagogo…the multiple marriages but mostly the brazen rudeness and disrespect for the liberation struggle’…endless. Lets not fight…magnanimity in victory and humility to accept defeat are the words. Inyika yedu tose.

    look nd consider th following points closely:
    MDC entered into GNU and later found out tht th othr part/zanupf was/is not sincere…eg..th sacking of MDC councillors nd th selective application of arrests by police,albeit T Makone as th boss of police together w K Mohadi.Theresa was less powerfull or as I c it.
    the 2 parties all campained fo a yes vote fo th constitution…but later th othr part said th yes vote was theirs….some of us felt short changed whn Tsvangirai said go fo a yes vote,I fo 1 knew tht anything tht zanupf says yes,its to their own advantage and bad to most Zimbabweans…th vry constitution has reached us to ths so called defeat of th MDC.
    My advice…plz do not participate in th GVT no matter @ wht level…let them do it alone and their fall will b imminent and one day Zimbabwe shall b free.siyai zvese SAVE…vaite ivo vakahwina tione vakazvigona…th 49 representation is nothing but a mockery to th stolen vote.

  42. Punungwe August 8, 2013 at 2:49 pm #

    What is need is for Tsvangirai to resign, and let the MDC have new hopefully more visionary leadership.

      @Punungwe, hey cde, where is Mbonisi and the Mtwakazi boys…..Welshman really let them down, nevermind no need for biitterness and acrimony …inyika yedu tose

    Tsvangirai will you ever mean what you say. Y talk if you hadnt really made up your mind so what do you expect us to believe. Kushinga hakusi kugona better retire coz politics dzinokukurira.

    hevoi.
    we want to hear MDC T agents. what are they saying. the polling stations they observed. were the elections rigged there? Tell us. from polling station to Constituency command centres MDC-T was represented. when they total up their figures, which polling stations gave diffenrent figure from those of MDC agents?
    Do not mislead your leader. those 3million people who voted, 61% voted for RGM and one million for MT. if, out of 6m, 3m people who did not vote were MDC-t, hanya nani? teach them to vote. do not continue to make noise.
    what happened in Bulawayo, where ZPF lost, Welshman Ncube akabigwa’ka neMDC-t.? wadyiwa adyiwa please. nyararayi and lets move this country forward.

    Yah zvakaoma,political polarization is gonna destroy this country,because of polarized politics Morgan fail to swallow his pride and congratulates the victor the country move forward,well it’s evident people of Zimbabwe like zanu of and its policies,if the polls where rigged let’s have the evidence the proof!its dangerous to generalize an important exercise,considering the amount of money,the reaction of the international community,investors,the discontent among the general populace,without evaluating the balance of evidence.let history prove him right,if he’s wrong he must be punished he an enemy of Zimbabweans

    The fact that so many zanu idiots have commented, it shows how much what President Tsvangirai says affect them. How I wish all cadres of the progressive forces would stop responding to the trash by these yellow-bellied zanu cowards and a**lickers. Let us give them all the space to bark themselves foolish.
