MDC-T Manicaland provincial spokesperson, Trevor Saruwaka confirmed Sagandira’s return.

‘’It’s a happy day for the MDC-T family, especially our former comrades, our president Morgan Tsvangirai has opened the door for everyone,’’ he said.

Sagandira said he was happy to rejoin the MDC-T, adding he would not mind being reduced to an ordinary card-carrying member.
“What I realised is that the only enemy of the country is President Robert Mugabe and I don’t mind being accepted as an ordinary cardholder,’’ he said

MDC-T provincial chairman, David Chimhini welcomed the opposition party’s “prodigal son”.

‘’He is our prodigal son and the father has accepted the prodigal son. I am urging party members that they should not harass and label him names,’’ he said.
