MDC-T spokesperson, Obert Gutu has quit the opposition party and will contest the Harare East constituency which had been reserved for PDP leader, Tendai Biti under the MDC Alliance.
In a post on his Twitter account, Gutu said he is a principled and professional politician.
“I am not going to continue associating myself with an organisation that advocates for violence and thuggery,” he said.
