NATIONAL People’s Party (NPP) leader Joice Mujuru has urged her supporters to embrace the G40 members who were being fired by Zanu PF over their links to former President Robert Mugabe and his wife, Grace.

Addressing People’s Rainbow Coalition (PRC) members in Masvingo yesterday, Mujuru said her coalition with the Lucia Matibenga-led splinter group of the People’s Democratic Party would become stronger by incorporating smaller parties and fired G40 members
“You are the ones who know the people who are being chased away. Do you know we want them?” she asked.
“It is our duty to call them and work with them. There are also small political parties that are mushrooming and are in search of parties to work with. Let us not block them, rather let us invite them to our party and combine forces.”
She said Zanu PF and the Nelson Chamisa-led MDC-T had no chance against her PRC.
“Zanu PF and MDC-T do not count in this scenario. There is little time left. Tave kunorova bhora redu mugedhe, hapana goalkeeper (We are now going to score, there is no goalkeeper). We want free and fair elections, no military support,” she said. She insisted that NPP would not join the MDC Alliance due to four fundamental reasons which she did not mention.
“There were four reasons why we did not agree with MDC-T and that is why the friendship failed. We are not going to join MDC Alliance as what people are saying,” the former Vice-President said.
