‘Mujuru party ready to join hands with MDC-T’

THE National People’s Party (NPP) led by Joice Mujuru (pictured) yesterday said there was need to court the main opposition MDC-T to prop up the opposition’s chances of wresting power from the ruling Zanu PF party.


NPP party spokesperson Jeffreyson Chitando told NewsDay in an interview that: “As NPP, we still feel that all democratic parties should not divide the vote and that there must be a grand coalition as that is the only chance that we have to beat Zanu PF. The issue of who is going to lead the coalition should be immaterial and people should just sit down and discuss who the popular candidate is. We just need to win this election,” he said.

Chitando said the NPP will add value by bringing in the support of rural people and war veterans, while the MDC-T appeals to the youth.

“Zimbabweans have been struggling for a long time and it is high time we should bury this monster called Zanu PF which has been created by the military junta,” he said.
Chitando said NPP had charmed chiefs and headmen in the rural areas as the party gears for the 2018 elections.

Chitando said in areas such as Masvingo, over 300 chiefs and headmen were backing NPP.

“As a party, we are now meeting traditional leaders, comprising of chiefs and village heads to lobby for their support as we prepare for the 2018 elections,” he said.

“In Masvingo only, more than 300 chiefs and headmen from different areas have met with our party leadership where we lobbied for their support and we got a very positive response.”

Chitando also claimed that the party has garnered support from war veterans and women who were backing a fellow woman as their presidential candidate.

“We have successfully lobbied a lot of women to support Mujuru because they feel she is the best candidate to articulate issues that affect them such as reproductive health, provision of safe and clean water, and even several other issues that affect rural women,” he said.

  2. This NNP is a useless party even failing to address rallies .

  3. As much as the idea of a grand coalition is a good one, I personally think the idea of presidency has nothing with you being a man or woman. I am a man but I can still vote for a female candidate just as I can do for a man. So, gender aside. Lets stick to popularity

    1. Shaolin Kung fu master

      Vote for Thoko then

      1. Who is THOKO …thereis nothing but MDC MNANGAGWA kwete kuti MDC khupe

  4. That is the best way to go , it shows the NPP family need real change but president is Chamisa , Mai Mujuru can serve as an advise coz at 53 yrs she will be retiring in two years .

    1. When we removed Mugabe we were one. To remove Zanu PF we should be one

  5. Sorry at 63 yrs

  6. alliance trying to counter the new look team by adopting those who know all their tricks, weak strategy

  7. even if you gang up as a dozen it wont change a thing ED is landing this one

  8. The constitution requires chiefs and headman to be non-partisan. As opposition parties you need to know what is public material and what to keep to yourselves.The issue of your party having lobbied for support from chiefs and headman is a strategy and as such was not supposed to be known to anyone other than yourselves as a party.Remember you are dealing with a chief strategist in the form of Ngwena.If Zanu pf looses do you think they won’t raise that issue?

  9. mujuru must join in and bring in some more support,,,,,,,,period

  10. Comment…the MDC alliance is the only bull in town hence Chitando et al are vomiting & hallucinating. we want a serious political party like mdc-t led by Dr Nero, the rest are opportunists- social media political parties with no standing.

    they have their own coalition but it seems they are not satisfied, they feel mdc-t gaps. Kikikikiki, Chitando left the giant party for a smaller one where he scooped a top but useless post. now he wants to return back under the backdoor.

    pliz shut them out. Even the likes of madame Khupe follow suit, she must not be accommodated. they are full time rebels. …….keep them away from the people’s project. it will never die as they wish. viva Morgan Tsvangirai, viva Dr Nero.

  11. Ichokwadi Here

    “—with all democratic parties–” is mdc t “democratic” read what Justice Bere said in bulawayo high court

    1. Chisa mbama chisa

      Ichokwadi Here- Removing a sitting president through a coup is democracy according to you? Chamisa was elected by the National Executive Council of his party and to you thus not democratic. I hope you understand what democracy is.

  12. It would be a good idea to for Ma mujuru and Ma Khupe to join the Alliance, that will boost the chances of victory for the MDC Alliance to 99.9%
