Morgan Tsvangirai

THE MDC-T national executive yesterday reaffirmed its support for party leader Morgan Tsvangirai despite his loss to President Robert Mugabe in the July 31 polls.
REPORT BY STAFF REPORTER

The executive held a two-day post-election strategic planning meeting which ended yesterday to review the implications of its electoral defeat and to chart the way forward.

MDC-T spokesperson Douglas Mwonzora told NewsDay: “The national executive reaffirmed its confidence in the leadership of party president Morgan Tsvangirai contrary to reports in some sections of media which suggested otherwise.”

The high-profile post-election meeting held in Harare was in response to recent political developments, including the subtle endorsement of the election outcome by Sadc leaders.

Mwonzora said the party had also received reports of how the harmonised elections were allegedly stolen.

“The executive received a chilling account of how the election was rigged and prepared a comprehensive response thereto which it will roll out.”

Quizzed on what the party would do about it, Mwonzora was not forthcoming although the party is on record as saying it would pursue diplomatic and political means to resolve the matter.

Tsvangirai has been at the helm of the MDC-T since its formation in 1999 and has lost to Mugabe in presidential contests three times.

In the latest round, the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) declared Mugabe the winner with 61% against Tsvangirai’s 34%.

Tsvangirai petitioned the Constitutional Court demanding nullification of the results, but later withdrew the petition after Zec declined to release voting material which he needed to substantiate his rigging claims.

    • The MDC T has really lost direction. Why then did they approach the courts for evidence of election rigging if they knew they could get that evidence through other means? and so why did they withdraw the petition as their reasons for withdrawal are so trivial and lack substance. The MDC T might have tonnes of evidence their National Executive Committee is not a court of law and waht they might see as evidence is not evidence in a court of law. These guys must stop wasting our time as they are now boring us with this imaginery election rigging which they have since failed to authenticate. Please give us a break.

      • ana taguma musangoda kunzwika makazoziva law riinhiko, dont just post what you do not know. every zpf supporter was shocked about the results except those that were directly linked in rigging. there is evidence ndosaka makaramba nayo, dai yakabuda i gurrantee you dai outcome isati yabuda.

  1. Ndoinonzi maturity ka iyi.Come 2018 ZANU(PF) will cry kuti MDC-T rigged the elections.Inenge iri via Orlando

  2. Tsvangirai is the people’s leader. Let ZPF not tell the MDC what to do. The majority of the people in this country support the MDC, thats the fact of the matter. Under this uneven political landscape prevailing in this country, the MDC has done very well. Its difficult to operate if you are not ZPF. The MDC is a credible party. ZPF will never beat the MDC in a free and fair poll with an INDEPENDENT ZEC. One man One Vote is true democracy. Its now time to rig the economy ZPF, good luck.

    • MDC-Tea will never win an election as long as Tsvangirai is its Leader. Midzimu yeZim yakamuramba kunaTojeni. We were with him and he knows what he was told. he was frankly told “Mfana hamba eyehlala pansi uphumule”

      MDC formed from the Labour Trade Union (ZCTU) may win an election and not this MDC-Tea puppet grouping. Tsvangirai is an empty vessel.

      Tsvangirai Leaders must be put to a Referrendum to see if the majority of his party supports still want him as leader and not the few CHANCERS vana Monzoraaa shame on you MDC-Tea Executice Few

  3. Save zvekutonga zviri kure nemi. Politics is about tricks and strategies. Munofana kuona semuporofita zvinhu zvisati zvaitika. Munofanira kuziva zvirikurongwa nemuvengi wenyu asati azviita. kana musati makugona ipapo apo, better muchembere muchingokwikwidza nekutengesa vote yevabereki, vana, varombo, vafumi, vakaremara, mapurisa vavamwe vose.

    VaMgabe vanoziva politics. kunyange ruzhinji rukati haruvadi, asi chinonzi politics ndicho chavanoziva manje. Plus havatorerwe election vakatarisa sedemba.

    Save endai munoona vaMgabe mudzidziswe kuti munongwara sei. Nyika haidi vanhu vakapusa. Chinonzi kutungamirira kuona zviri mberi zvisiri kuonekwa nevanhu mogara magadzirira, kwete kuteverera vamunoda kutungamirira. Maifanira kunge makaona rigging plot kare dai maisada kutengesa election. Munenge makatopiwa mari imi, kana chimwe chinhu.

    Zanu inoti muri mutengesi. Zvikada ichokwadi nekuti matengesa win yenyu katatu zviri pachena. Huye deno maihwina maitorerwa nyika easy-easy nevapambe pfumi. Nekuda kwekupata.

    Kana mada kunamata endai kuchechi, kana mada kutonga endai musango. Izvezvi makamirira kuti vanhu vapinde muuzhinji mumigwagwa imi mozoti honai vanhu vati havakudei. Pindai ndimi mumugwagwa macho, morobwa, mosungwa, movharirwa, mozobuda mabhabhatidzwa mave mutungamiri ane history.

  4. Hatimboshamiswa ne zvinotaurwa ne national executive ye MDC-T kuti zvisineyi kuti Tsvangirai haana chaanoziva vano vimba naye nekuti pakanzi Tsvangirai arikuzochata na Elisabeth Macheka iyo national executive ye MDC-T yakati inowirirana nazvo. In other words, the national executive of the MDC-T is full of “Yes men and women” who are more interested in preserving their positions in the moribund party, Tsvangirai’s puppets who will always say “Yes” to anything connected to Tsvangirai.
    Tsvangirai is a tried and tested flop. Tsvangirai himself must do the honourable thing and step down because he is wasting political space. He is bereft of ideas. Tsvangirai has failed dismally and with him at the helm there is no hope for MDC-T. Or the MDC-T must disband because they have wasted time and money. There’s no hope of beating Zanupf in 2018. Tsvangirai has failed since 1999.

    • ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS AN OPPOSITION PARTY CALLED MDC-T. This is good news for ZANU PF. They enjoy competing with him in everything. Seriously consider this; going for elections against ZANU PF and no violence. Then you are not serious opposition. With Morgan at the helm MDC-T has been reduced to the likes of ZUM.

      • See my comment below oh stupid one. You forget what the shops were like 5 to 6 years ago and what the money was like. Are you so stupid that you want to go back to that? It’s going to happen sooner than you think because you obviously voted for zpf like a baboon with no memory.

    • Oh shut up you bl**dy fool. Morgan was the one that put food back in the shops after mugs ruined the economy to the point that you couldn’t even buy your staple diet in the shops. The reason why the country became more successful after 33 years of ruin is because of Morgan. So shut up with your uneducated comments about Morgan being a flop, the only flop here is mugs who is proving Mr Ian Smith right with the 1000 year prediction. Look what that twat has done to our country, although none of it is his fault. His legacy when he dies soon is to have been the biggest bungling fool in African History. And people like you kiss his backside, fool get a life.

      • @Peter Macklyn – you idiot – Morgan did not put food back in the shops. The use of multi-currencies was introduced by the then Acting Minister of Finance Chinamasa before the GNU was formed – that is to say, with or without GNU (Morgan’s MDC) food was going to be in the shops. You are na ignorant fool trying to give credit to Morgan when eh did absolutely nothing.
        MDC-T leaders ridiculously claim credit for the introduction of the multi-currency regime that was introduced by then Acting Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa on January 29 2009, a whole two weeks before the formation of the inclusive Government on February 13 that year.

      • Wakapusa iwe….wakanganwa here budget presented by Chinamasa in January which was quoted in US dollar well be4 GNU. Uri dofo neMDC yako

  5. Stop lying to the people, we all know you will soon be joining the Gukurahundi government of Gukurahundi Unity!!

  6. save i dofo hapana chavanacho mumusoro vane zvavo muzip chete.makanga muripi muchibirirwa,it was gnu.bvumai hatichakudai vatengesi takazvibata hamutide gushungo vanesu pamoyo imi moshora,kana tika vhota ka20 tinongovhotera gushungo.kana pakaoswa Save vs mubvuri wa Gusgungo we vote for mubvuri wa Gushungo

  7. bora pacentre tienderere mberi more iz more usanyeberwe nembavhaa idziii takapanduka zvachosee no nikuv next election no rita no mudede no charamba no chiwenga muno mama chete apa mambo mamiswa nevakuru venyu vachikubirai makatarisa kumama nekumama.

  9. @ Peter Macklin – Morgan had no clue about the country’s economics – here is what he had to say early this year.
    Tsvangirai, President of MDC-T said his party would have caused chaos if it had gone into government without the “apprenticeship course”, under Mugabe’s mentorship.
    “It would have been chaos and fighting each other if we had gone straight into power, but God had a plan,” he was quoted saying.
    “God has a purpose for everything. He did not allow us to go straight into power, but allowed us to go through an apprenticeship course where we have been taught how to rule and know where the keys to govern the country are found.”

    You get it you ignorant fool.

    • so if he does nt hv a clue bat the economics of ths country u shud nt blame him 4 sanctions since ther r olso wrapped up in e same bundle

  10. anyone who thinks they are better educated politically the mdc leadership and think can do better are welcome to start their own part .rather than just down talk whe u actually doing nothin. nxaa pissed.

  11. @Peter Macklyn – I am waiting for your response. I have given you enough proof that Morgan Tsvangirai is a tried and tested flop. Tsvangiirai himself admitted that he knew nothing but you, a blind follower, would like to tell lies on his behalf. Food being in shops has nothing whatsoever to do with MDC-T or Tsvangirai. Running a country’s economy is much more complicateed than what you think you ignorant fool.

    • so z it tht zanu z so cruel 2 let pipo suffer to tht extent of 2007 wn ol along they had e solution b careful abt ur claims coz they r js cming bec to bite u

  12. Tsvangirayi give others a chance, zvaramba izvi zvaramba. If you continue contesting, uchasvitsa 89 years. Uchingo contester usingahwini. Uchingoti I have been rigged.

  13. @tindo kareka: Usa tsamwe some comments are come from CIOs and other who are employed to exactly do this…vano despise everyone and pull anyone down…actually using their failures…zvazviri muupenyu hwavo such as kusadzidza etc. Unoti a normal person would go on such a tirade denouncing anyone who is contrary to their views or anyone who holds a dirrefent opinion. Even vaka rambwa nemadzimai avo they label them MDCs, sell-outs etc. The magic and the strength is to know this, hapana nyaya life goes on!

  14. I like the mdc thinking coz as long as they have chematama on top they r going to keep on losing. Obviously they have never heard about the magic of the one man theory. If they dont have that book they will never run this country. They better not coz i like them like that, weak, stationery and predictable. A punching bag. Tsvangirai we love you. Kiki! 2018 we have rigged already!

    • Thats my point exactly. This is a very good development for ZANU-PF. You will here in future some mdc-t guys claiming that ZANU-PF infiltrated their meeting to chose morgan knowing that he can not match them.

  15. People who thing like Wezhira are poor in mind.Hama yangu Wezhira zpf imhuka inotyisa kwazvo.Imomo zvese zvirimo.cio mupurisa muuto mutongi mabharani(registrar).Saka ungadii pakadaro.A big institution baba.Itaiwo timbokutukaiwo vanaWezhira

  16. The man is supposed to give others a chance. How long will you lead people to more losses? Just do the right thing and hand over the button.

  17. The truth still remains that mdc won the elections.No amount of propaganda will convince people otherwise.Those who think zanu pf won need some serious head examining.

  18. why zec yakarambira ne voters roll??mdc is the winner?atichada don’t force vanhu.come pa south africa muone how an economy and nyika can be run.

  19. Recycling mediocrity! Whilst he might have been headstrong enough to challenge RGM, a key attribute in oppositional politics apparently, he was not smart enough to unseat him. What does the party of excellence’s constitution say about leadership change? Is that law going to be ignored again?

  20. Its narrow mindedness to think that shops will go empty because Tsvangirayi lost elections. The electorate does not have confidence in him anymore. National executive haisiyo inovoter mumaelections.

  21. Zvirinani kupfudza mombe nekuvotera MDC-T. How can u keep on riding on a dead donkey. Svimurai kani varume nemadzimai vakasvika why on earth keep on moving in dark.Makananga kupi.Muchawa chiseko chenyika yose
