THE fight for the control of party assets in the faction-riddled MDC-T raged on in Mutare and Kwekwe over the weekend when members of the Morgan Tsvangirai-led group were locked out of provincial offices by a faction sympathetic to “axed” secretary-general Tendai Biti.

Tsvangirai and Biti are fighting for control of the party following their acrimonious fallout last month with both camps claiming to be the legitimate leaders of the party. After the fallout, Biti and his “renewal team” held a consultative meeting at the offices and on Saturday reportedly barred their rivals from using the facilities.

MDC-T Manicaland provincial acting chairman Shuah Mudiwa confirmed the Mutare incident yesterday.

“It was the boom gate that was locked, but we later gained entrance,” he said.

Mudiwa replaced Julius Magarangoma, who was suspended recently because of his alleged links to the Biti faction.

“The meeting proceeded successfully, but we later observed that there were elements who wanted to disrupt it.

“There were, however, sticky issues over the participation of suspended councillors, but at the end the meeting went on well.
“We called off the meeting after realising that some people were asking disruptive questions,” he said.

However, Pishai Muchauraya, who is leading the Biti campaign in Manicaland, insisted that the provincial offices belonged to his faction and accused Tsvangirai followers of trespassing.

“They trespassed into the office. They used undesignated entry points to gain entrance and for us these people were squatting at our office because most of them are suspended or they are in support of suspended people,” Muchauraya said.

“Had they sought permission earlier to use the office, we would have granted them because as true democrats we always maintain an open-door policy.”
In Kwekwe, the Biti faction also reportedly locked out Tsvangirai loyalists.

Acting provincial chairman Sedwell Bhebhe said members loyal to Biti had removed all the documents and furniture from the party office and left it locked.
“They were given the keys by our office administrator and took all the party documents including membership cards and the furniture. As we speak, the office is locked, but we are using it because we found ways of getting inside,” Bhebhe said.

Mbizo MP Settlement Chikwinya, who admitted being linked to Biti, told NewsDay that he was now in charge of the Midlands North provincial office and all other party assets in the province.

    • Kana mwana ati “baba ndakura ndava kuda kuzviitira” ,ngaasiyane nezvakatsvagwa nababa panguva yake mumusha umu.Chave chigonndora chave chimombe, kutadza kufura urema hwacho.Afunga kubva muutungamiri hwaTsvangirai ngaatange zvake, haungazviti wakura iwe uchipfeka bhurugwa wakabata madziro. Biti nevanhu vake tsvagai enyu mahofisi, siyanai nezve MDC-T. Mangoromera enyu akawandisa, muchapedzera masimba mukurova miti nematombo, tigozokuonai maoko ava matanda.

  1. Since every event which befalls Tsvangirai is the act of Zanu pf.A sensible headline to Tsvangirai would be “Zanu pf locks out Tsvangirai”.or reverse Biti would love this headline”Biti locks out Zanu pf” since he believes Tsvangirai is a Zanu pf CIO.unobva washaya kuti zviri kufamba sei

    • Zvozodii ne chinja?Time is fast running out for 2018,with Zanu smilling all the way to elections date.Meno hako gore rino.

  3. I thought we were fighting against this zpf dictatorship as a united party not knowing what this HIV infested Malawian had in mind. Politics is a game of numbers Cde Biti. Do you think you have enough grassroots support given that you’re a Malawian whose relative has been running down this country for 34 years now? Young (HIV-infested) man you’re a disgrace.

  4. I must thank MDC and its amoebic splits for the tonic effect on the general populace in preparation for the Great Split in ZPf that will beset us as soon as the strongman reports for duty above.

  5. Politics is a game of numbers Cde Biti. Do you think you have enough grassroots support? Young man you’re a disgrace.

  6. In all this circus let us remember that Mangoma’s queries to Tsvangirai have not been answered. Does anybody remember the contents of Mangoma’s letter?

  11. This opposition party is being run by a bunch of confused pple instead of creating compettion they are ratha causng comotion they neva ever rule this country

  12. Building solutions, renovations, refurbishments, Bill of Quantities, Bill of Materials Schedule Project management, construction and consultancy call on 263 735 249 169 and all your visions and thoughts will be achieved.

  13. ln my opinion the Biti faction do not have people at heart all what they want is money, he is now using Madhuku strategy as described by R.G Mugabe a couple of years ago on his 84year birthday, Biti is only causing harm to the party because he knows that if he leave the MDC T name then he is finished. Look at people like S Chikwinya this guy is all about money, if you’re from mbizo Kwekwe you know it exactly, there comes this Mafume guy that is not the type of a spokesperson people can ever dream of.Biti don’t care if he is gonna lose in 2018 all he wants is money from the donors, that’s why he is Gono’s lawyer after bad things he used to say about him. When it comes to politics Biti and your senseless group you are ideologically bankrupt.

  14. Takagara tazviona isu wise man from the east that MDC is the other side of coin of Zanu PF, the two are real blood brothers. You can’t separate the two they share same characters such as violence, anti-democracy, corruption, dictatorship, capitalism, greed the list is endless. Zimbabwe needs a new political party with new people who are free from zanu pf and mdc cancer.

  15. why does mangoma need answers yet he was participant in all those issues? mangoma,biti ncube,dabengwa,bennet a bunch of lunatics which will never rule zimbabwe at all. these are not politicians but secretaries and pa personnel to the politicians so ,it does not mean they have what it takes to administer a political party like Morgan,even madhuku kkkkkkkk,mu Zimbabwe haungomuki woti ini ndakutotungamirira party unonyepa ukawana vaviri vanokuvhotera biti,kkkkkkkkk. iyezvino ncube haana kana vanhu kkkkkkkkkk,iwe woteedzera izvozvo wozviti wakadzidza so fun buddy,do they no you in murehwa there that you got political ambitions i don’t think so because that’s you should have started campaining from your roots datsi romunhu kkkkkkkkkk,tarisa morgan aa zvearikuita kwake ku bhuhera iwe woti tote tasa kumanyika haulume come elections kkkkkkkkk,home grown campaign baba,zvenyu zvekuonererwa izvi motouya zvenyu ku zanu pf kwedu kkkkkkkkkk{i fought zanu pf through out my life i will never join them,kkkkk zanu pf says will protect our mps such that they will not be recalled by tsvangirai from parlykkkkkkkk} ingobuda pachenaka sei uchiita semucheche wega hakuna kwaunoenda iyezvino ma mps avakudzokera wosarawega dai wakurumidza,usazoite sa masimba akanzi tanga tozoteera ndokuzorasiswa kkkkkkkkkknana nhingi ………kkkkkkkkkkkkk.

    use of colognes and moisturisers may make it all go away.
    kana ndimiwo wemapepa please provide these boys with vivid imagery yavana ve africa vari kudyiwa nenhunzi zvichikonzerwa nevekunze vane mari budgeted for chaos and disunity. zviregedzeyi nguwa ichipo haazi mahumbwe !!

  17. Biti,fighting Tsvangirai is not at all the struggle for or by the pple.Open your own offices & establish your own party structures with
    a completely different party name. This coalition thing you are calling for can only make you look more foolish than how stupid you are. You have to work hard to prove yourself politically. You cling to MDC-T properties & prove your inability to sell yourself
    to the people which matters most. Yes you can win all the donnar funding but NEVER the people’s hearts & trust.
    By the way have you ever bothered to find out how many university graduates are loitering the streets of our big cities?Have you ever cared to know how many of our university graduates are selling airtime cards &sweets to earn a living?Have you ever cared to find out how serious unemployment in this country is?What are you doing about that?
    PLEASE DON’T THINK A LAW DEGREE IS A PASSPORT TO A POLITICAL PARTY LEADERSHIP.
    EVEN SOME PROFESSORS IN ZIMBABWE HAVE FAILED TO LEAD ANY MEANINGFUL POLITICAL PARTIES.
    THE PEOPLE OF ZIMBABWE DON’T LOOK AT ONE’S DEGREES. EVEN DEGREES OF VIOLENCE ARE NOTHING
    IN THE EYES OF ZIMBABWEANS.
    THE PEOPLE KNOW WHAT THEY WANT, NOT YOUR USELESS UNIVERSITY DEGREES.

  18. the problem is self denial, we should apreciate divergence views and to think that Honourable Morgan will rule this counrty its a dream lets face it his chances have faded with the passage of time.

  19. Biti , fighting Tsvangirai is not what the people want. By clinging to MDC-T properties you are indeed saying you cannot do your own thing.Please form your political party with a completely new name & structures. Your call for a so-called grand coalition is yet another
    sign of your weakness. Who can trust a REBEL,a TRAITOR ? Why rebel against your leader yet call for unity elsewhere?
    Who will trust a hypocrite?
    DON’T THINK UNIVERSITY DEGREES ARE A PASSPORT TO POLITICAL PARTY LEADERSHIP. EVEN POLAD PROFESSORS HAVE NEVER LED ANY MEANINGFUL POLITICAL PARTIES.WE HAVE SEVERAL UNIVERSITY GRADUATES SELLING AIRTIME CARDS & SWEETS AT STREET CORNERS. THE PEOPLE OF ZIMBABWE KNOW WHAT THEY WANT-NOT YOUR USELESS
    UNIVERSITY DEGREES. EVEN DEGREES OF VIOLENCE HAVE DRIVEN AWAY SUPPORTERS!
    REMEMBER ALL ZIMBABWE PROFESSORS HAVE NOTHING TO OFFER POLITICALLY & THE PEOPLE DON’T CARE…

  20. IfZim opposition wants to be effective come 2018, they shoud drop their sefish ambitions and form a grand coalition that incorporates all existing opposition parties and include students, workers, civic organisations and get the support of the churches. The President of such coaliton must be of substance kwete mhombwe kana mbavha…….Tsvangirai is not a good candidate.

  23. Tsvangirai was elected to lead by congress.Biti who chose you to cause confussion in the people’s project?Is that what you agreed to do for ZanuPf during negotiations for reforms in the GNU.

  24. biti and his coterie of bootlickers are a zanu pf project. Robert and his blind maniacs are now rubbing their hands with glee, with broad smiles on their faces like cheshire cats because they know their project in mdc is now bearing fruits. Zimbabwe will never get out of this circus as long as this mindset of parroting for Zanu pf does not come to an end. We need a paradigm shift in our way of thinking for us to see how these maniacs are killing our country while we cheer them on the sidelines.The road to hell is paved with its competitors and now i know. GOD will not forsake us and i pray that the end is now drawing nigh.

  25. Hey people for hw long did M Sata lead the opposition party in Zambia and also The DA leader in SA? Nw u blame Tsvangirai , Biti blamed the Zhanu P F for rigging the elections nw u say its Tsvangirai to blame for failing to win the elections.
